Cinnamon Bread recipe

Delicious Cinnamon Swirl Bread - a quick bread recipe with a cinnamon and sugar swirl and topped with a creamy glaze!

You guys know that we are always up for trying out new bread recipes, especially if they don’t involve yeast (yes, it still makes me a bit nervous). When we saw a recipe for Cinnamon Bread (aka Cinnamon Roll Bread), we knew we had to give it a go. We’ve made Cinnamon Bread for years, but it’s one of those recipes that no one other than my mom has really been able to master. When it comes to making it really soft, filled with cinnamon and sugar, she has it down to an art.

Fortunately, this Cinnamon Roll Bread is a bit easier and has much of the same flavor as the cinnamon bread but with some of the cinnamon roll factors (like glaze) that everyone loves.

When you have a delicious, quick bread recipe that has a delicious brown sugar filling and topping and then it’s drizzled with a delicious glaze, you really got to give it a try. We changed up a few things by giving it even more cinnamon flavor, but we think you’ll love this bread recipe like we did.

    On my goodness! This bread looks like Heaven! I bet it smells amazing, too. We make a lot of bread and have only made one cinnamon bread. This one looks so much easier. Pinning it for later so we can give it a try. 🙂

    I just took this bread out of the oven. I took a chance and made two loaves by doubling this recipe. It is fantastic. I am freezing one for when my son comes home from college for spring break. Cinnamon rolls are one of his favorites and it truly tastes like a cinnamon roll, but in bread form. It even has that tell-tale sticky cinnamon roll texture where all the swirls are. At least mine does. Thanks for a wonderful recipe I will make again and again.

    Outstanding recipe.
    I added some things but kept to the recipe.
    The additions were dash of all spice, nutmeg, and a chopped apple. The apple of course led to a longer bake time but the bread was still delicious 😋

    1. That’s a good question. What would you normally substitute? I have heard you could use buttermilk. I would check google 🙂
