This bread is identical to Dollywood’s famous Cinnamon Bread. A pillow loaf is brushed with melted butter and rolled in sweet cinnamon sugar. And for those with a sweet tooth, there is a delicious icing to pour over the bread at the end.
Fluffy Pulled Cinnamon Bread
Cinnamon sugar has always been a weakness of mine. I could never resist brownies, cinnamon rolls, or monkey bread. It’s impossible.
But here’s the thing. I don’t always have time to fry a bunch of chocolates or make cinnamon rolls from scratch. That’s where this pull-out cinnamon pan really comes in handy. It only takes 10 minutes to prep, an hour to bake, and then all you have to do is bake.
Cinnamon sugar bread is sweet and gooey like a classic cinnamon roll breakfast, but without the hassle. It’s a breakfast staple in my book, and my kids especially love it. I eat this bread on holiday mornings, Saturday mornings, and even weekdays when I have a sweet tooth.
This bread is very fluffy. It is buttered, coated with cinnamon and sugar, and finished with a simple vanilla icing.
If you like to have dessert for breakfast, this is a recipe not to be missed.
What you need.
There is nothing in particular that you will need. This week’s shopping list is short.
Here are the ingredients you will need for this addictive sweet breakfast
- Frozen bread – I used Rhodes frozen and baked bread.
- Milk – whipped cream for a richer frosting.
- Butter – melted so that the cinnamon and sugar adhere to the bread.
- Top White Sugar – you may not need the entire 2 cups, but make sure it is enough to roll out the bread and fill the cuts.
- Cinnamon – as you reduce the amount of sugar, the amount of cinnamon will also be reduced proportionally.
- Icing Sugar – This is the base for the vanilla icing.
- Vanilla Flavor – used to give a sweet vanilla flavor.
How to make cinnamon bread
Cinnamon bread is a little more labor intensive than cereal, but it pays off. Most of the time needed to make this breakfast (or dessert) is spent waiting for the bread to rise or bake. That means keeping an eye on the oven door while the aroma of sweet cinnamon buns fills the kitchen.
To summarize this simple bread recipe, here’s what you need to do
Thaw the frozen bread : Place the frozen bread on a tray and allow it to thaw at room temperature. This will take 3-4 hours. It can also be thawed overnight in the refrigerator.
Prepare a bread pan : Spray an 8-inch loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
Slice the bread : Cut the bread into almost 4 slices, leaving the bottom.
Butter the bread : Brush the bread with melted butter, making sure to brush the cut edges well.
Spread cinnamon sugar on bread :Mix sugar and cinnamon in a wide dish and gently roll bread in cinnamon sugar. Make a thick layer, filling each cut generously with cinnamon sugar.
Lay the bread : place a loaf in each pan and cover with a light colored tea towel. Let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 350°F and bake bread for 20-25 minutes. Bread should be golden brown and sound hollow when tapped on the bottom. Remove the bread from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
Prepare the icing : While the bread is cooling, mix the icing. Combine icing sugar, vanilla, and 2 tablespoons milk and stir until smooth. If necessary, add more milk until desired consistency is reached. Drizzle icing over warm bread and serve.
Recipe for success
So, that’s it. This is a simple pastry recipe.
Here are my tips for getting the best results every time I make cinnamon buns.
- Make 1 loaf : This recipe makes 3-5 loaves, but you can make one loaf at a time if you prefer. Just reduce the amount of butter and sugar mixture. Baking time will be the same.
- Make deep cuts in the bread : It is more effective to make incisions in the bread. This way, the butter and sugar will be distributed throughout the bread, not just on the surface.
- Use plenty of butter : Spread a generous amount of butter on one slice of bread so that the cinnamon sugar sticks to it.
- Cinnamon Sugar Tip : Use plenty of cinnamon sugar Cinnamon sugar melts at the bottom into a delicious syrup that can be saved and poured over the bread.
- How to check if bread is baked :To check for doneness, tap the bottom of the loaf pan and if it sounds hollow, it is done.
- Allow the icing to cool before applying : This way, the icing will stick to the bread and not take all the cinnamon sugar with it.
- To add flavor : Place a spoonful of apple or peach filling on the bread before adding the icing.
- You may want to sprinkle : 1 cup of the apple or peach filling on top of the bread before adding the icing.
How to store homemade bread
Cinnamon bread is best eaten fresh out of the oven and hot, but it can be stored at room temperature, covered, for up to three days. It can be served at room temperature, or reheated in a toaster or regular oven.
Can it be frozen?
Yes, of course. You can wait until the bread has cooled and store it in an airtight container for up to three months. It can also be stored in an airtight plastic bag with the air removed.
When heating cinnamon buns, be sure to defrost them overnight in the refrigerator.
