Bread Week: Cinnamon Bread

It's Bread Week at Girl, Dog,Oven!!  In honor of my favorite food group, I'm officially christening this week "Bread Week" - a celebration of yeast and flour and yumminess.  Over the past month or so, I've branched out from good old wheat bread into some different kinds.  This week I'm going to post them, starting with what has become Hubby's new favorite breakfast item - cinnamon swirl bread! 

Growing up, we went to Hoss's Steak and Sea House a lot.  The best part of Hoss's was the all you can eat soup and salad bar.  They had pretty much everything you could want on a salad, along with the most delicious bread - garlic bread, white bread, wheat bread and the yummy cinnamon sugar bread with the white sugar icing.  My goal with this bread was to recreate that.  The icing came out a little runny (needed more powdered sugar, fixed in the below recipe) but otherwise spot on!

Makes great toast!

Cinnamon Swirl Bread
(makes 2 loaves)

1 recipe for Thursday Bread
3 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons ground cinnamon
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1-2 tablespoons milk

Mix the bread as directed through the first rise.  Divide the dough into two and allow to rise for 15 minutes.  Roll each dough ball into a rectangle slightly wider and twice as long as the bread pan.  Mix the sugar and cinnamon together - spread half onto the dough.  Roll up, pinch the ends and place into a greased loaf pan.  Repeat for the other dough ball.  Bake at 350 degrees for 25-27 minutes, until the crust is golden brown.  Whisk the milk in the powdered sugar.  Once the bread is cool, pour over the top of the loaf, allow to harden.  Slice and enjoy!
