Glazed Cinnamon Bread

This Glazed Cinnamon Bread is delicious with butter or cream cheese on it, as well as as is after being freshly baked. If it lasts long enough to become a couple of days old, it also makes for a nice breakfast toast. If you love the aroma of freshly baked goods, you’ll love this cinnamon bread because it smells as good as it tastes. Here’s how to make it.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9×5 loaf pan with nonstick baking spray.

Place the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, kosher salt and the cinnamon into a medium sized mixing bowl and whisk together.

Place the buttermilk, canola oil, vanilla and eggs into a large mixing bowl and whisk together until combined.

Gradually beat in the dry ingredients until combined.

Place the melted butter and 2 tbsp ground cinnamon into a small bowl and whisk together until combined.

Pour half of the bread batter into the loaf pan.

Pour half of the cinnamon butter mixture onto the batter.

Use a knife to swirl the cinnamon butter mixture into the batter.

Top with the remaining batter

Swirl the rest of the cinnamon butter mixture into the batter

Place the bread pan onto a cookie sheet and place into the preheated oven and bake for 50-60 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.

Allow the bread to cool for 10 minutes before removing and placing onto a wire rack.

Now it’s time to make the glaze.

Place the powdered sugar, cinnamon and milk into a medium bowl and whisk until combined.

Pour the glaze over the bread and allow it to set before serving.

Serve and enjoy!
