Remember my easy cinnamon bread that is great for gifting? Well, I decided to make it in a 1.5-pound loaf pan and cover it with my favorite cinnamon roll icing to make a ridiculously delicious cinnamon roll bread.

I frequently receive questions asking how to make my cinnamon bread if you don’t want to divide it into 6 mini loaves and share with friends. Well, sometimes I don’t want to share either! I could easily devour half a loaf and never look back.

So, instead of just sharing how to bake one large loaf, I’m sharing how to turn it into cinnamon roll bread, because it’s just a couple of simple tweaks to make an incredible treat, perfect for brunch or dessert!

It’s my favorite way twist on a traditional cinnamon roll. The leaves make it great for everyone to choose the amount they want. Which means no more finding half-eaten cinnamon rolls left on the counter that have gone to waste.

It’s quick and easy to make requiring just 10 minutes hands on time and staple ingredients!

How to Make Cinnamon Roll Bread Swirls

I don’t put the cinnamon directly in the bread, but swirl it in, creating a super-moist bread that I liken to the cinnamon sugar mixture rolled between the dough in a cinnamon roll. I, of course, top it with a delicious icing that makes it beautiful and tasty.

The secret is in the swirl… Your technique here will be what determines if you end up with a picture perfect dessert, or something that little more like it belongs on an episode of Nailed It. Either way, you’ll come out with something delicious, but why not make it pretty too, if you can.

  1. Pour half the batter into a prepared loaf pan. Incredible cinnamon roll bread recipe in just 10 minutes!
  2. Next, coat the top with half of the cinnamon sugar mixture. Try to make sure it covers the whole surface evenly, but don’t worry too much if you have some holes, you’re going to swirl it later. Incredible cinnamon roll bread recipe in just 10 minutes!
  3. Take a knife are carefully drag it around to makes swirls in the mixture. Continue to do this until you get the desired swirl you would like. Don’t overswirl or the cinnamon sugar mixture will begin to settle into the batter. Incredible cinnamon roll bread recipe in just 10 minutes!

Tips

How to Store Quick Bread

  • Store quick bread covered in saran wrap at room temperature for up to 5 days.
  • To freeze loaves, wrap them tightly in heavy foil, saran wrap or place them in freezer bags (I like to do at least 2 to prevent freezer odors from seeping in), and freeze for up to 3 months. Bring to room temperature to serve. Glaze doesn’t freeze well, so glaze just before serving.

Adjust Pan Size

Prefer to use 2 1 pound loaf pans? Simply repeat this step with your other loaf pan, and you’ll be ready to throw them in the oven! No matter what size loaf pan you choose to use, be sure to not over fill leaving plenty of room for this delicious bread to rise!
