Cinnamon Roll Bread
•2 cups all-purpose flour
•1 tablespoon baking powder
•1/2 teaspoon salt
•1/2 cup granulated sugar
•1 egg – room temperature, lightly beaten
•1 cup milk – I used 1%
•2 teaspoons vanilla extract
•1/3 cup plain greek yogurt or sour cream
•1/3 cup granulated sugar
•2 teaspoons cinnamon
•2 tablespoons water
•1/2 cup powdered sugar
•1 tablespoon milk
1.Pre-heat our oven to 350 degrees and prepare a bread pan by spraying it with non-stick cooking spray or lightly greasing it with butter.
2.In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
3.In a small bowl combine egg, milk, vanilla extract and yogurt or sour cream.
4.Add the dry ingredients into the wet and stir to combine. You can use a large wooden spoon for this if you wish, no mixer is required.
5.In a small bowl combine swirl ingredients together – 1/3 cup sugar, 2 teaspoons cinnamon and 2 tablespoons water. Use a tablespoon to drop spoonfuls of this mixture over the bread, then use a knife to make swirl designs to incorporate the cinnamon mixture into the bread.
6.Bake for 45-50 minutes or until you insert a toothpick and it comes out clean.
7.Remove the bread from the oven and transfer it to a cooling rack to cool for 15 minutes.
8.Meanwhile, make the glaze ingredients by combining 1/2 cup powdered sugar with 1 tablespoon milk.
9.Remove the bread from the pan and allow it to continue cooling completely.
10.When the bread has completely cooled, pour the glaze over the top and serve.
