Mini Cinnamon Loaves

Super easy and delicious NON-YEAST Cinnamon Loaves. { lilluna.com } Sweet bread made from a yellow cake mix, sour cream, oil, & eggs, filled with brown sugar, cinnamon, & nutmeg with a powdered sugar glaze.

If you’ve been to my site before you know that I’m a sucker for sweet breads that require no yeast. Who wouldn’t be? To me, a sweet bread recipe is just too good to pass up and if it requires no yeast that’s even better. That may be because I still have no idea how to use yeast (I know, I know – I promise to get it mastered one day). It also helps that non-yeast recipes usually mean they’re quicker to make and that’s always a bonus in my book. 😉

Today’s recipe just happens to be another one of those non-yeast sweet breads, and I know you’re going to love it! It has a cake mix base, cinnamon and glaze. Do I have your attention yet? I’d like to think of it as a cinnamon roll in bread/cake form. YUM!! If you love a quick and easy bread recipe and cinnamon too, then I know you’ll love this Mini Cinnamon Bread. It’s especially wonderful to enjoy on a cold fall or winter day, and I can guarantee your whole family will love it. My kids are huge fans of bread recipes, so they are always so happy when I make them. And who can turn down a sweet, warm piece of bread straight from the oven?

Here’s the delicious recipe…

Ingredients

Cake

  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 large eggs

Filling

  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp milk (plus 1 tsp, if needed)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions
 

  • Grease and flour 5 mini loaf pans, set aside.
  • Combine your cake mix, sour cream, oil and eggs. Mix well with a mixer on low speed, scraping the sides of the bowl as needed. Beat for an additional 2 minutes with mixer on medium-high speed, until thick and smooth.
  • To make the filling, mix brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a small bowl.
  • Fill each pan about ¼ full with the batter, and then sprinkle each with 2 teaspoons of the filling. Cover each with another layer of batter. Sprinkle the remaining filling over the 5 loafs and use a knife to gently swirl the filling into your top layer of batter.
  • Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. Keep bread in pans and let cool on a wire rack for 20 minutes.
  • While loaves are cooling, prepare the glaze by combining your powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon milk and vanilla in a small bowl. Stir well. Use a spoon to drizzle the glaze over the cooled loaves and ENJOY!

Notes

*Bread can be wrapped in foil and stored in the freezer for up to 3 months.

  1. This looks wonderful! What are the measurements of your mini loaf pans? I have several sizes. Thanks so much for sharing!

  2. 5 stars
    Great recipe for cinnamon bread.
    I have also used this recipe minus the streusel for layer cakes. Nobody would ever guess that it’s cake mix. Thanks
