Fresh bread baking is one of the finest scents anyone can waken to. The cinnamon wafts throughout the house and it is intriguing to the olfactory. Your journey to the kitchen includes a stop at the coffee maker and then the discovery of a freshly baked loaf of cinnamon bread atop a wooden cutting board.
Beckoning you to slice it, the special mix of flour, yeast and water, and a few other ingredients have provided what will be a heavily bordered crunch with a sweet cinnamon return that is soft on the inside. The only thing holding you back from perfection and diving in is the missing, white, loosely guided icing.
If you are salivating now, wait until you create my cinnamon bread in your bread machine, because the smell puts your nose and enjoy cinnamon explosion in your mouth. Lavishly live homemade bread out loud, using your bread machine and my cinnamon bread recipe.
Cinnamon Bread Recipe
As I continually work with EVERY recipe I present to you, I decided to update you on my latest technique. I will add the items into the ingredient list and mark them as optional. Those of you who have repinned and made this and then shared your 1000’s of photos with me, will surely love the new twist.
The Cinnamon Bread Recipe in its original form will turn out perfect every time. I can attest to that as I have made this cinnamon bread at least 200+ times without a doubt. For holidays it is nice to make and take, so you see why I make so much.
Rest assured, today’s updates will only increase the volume and taste of your bread. You can see the difference, as the loaf is taller. My brick wall images are version one, while the new ones, are bigger and you can see the formation.
Yes I made it right in the bread machine, but the difference-maker definitely is the ‘optional’ ingredient! Also, I hope the addition of the video helps you out! ~ Dana XO

The recipe is easy to make for any day of the week, just make sure you are HOME to remove the bread immediately from the bread machine. We have also used Whole Wheat White Flour in this mixture and created very successful loaves of this Cinnamon Bread.
The key to the icing is allowing the bread to cool enough that the icing won’t melt when placed atop. You can also place the icing on right before serving. Add less water, instead of more. Thicker is better.
You want to make this thick enough to run, but not to be runny. I find that each time the Confectioner’s Sugar is different even when measured properly. Therefore I am stingy with the water at the beginning and I use a fork to mix it up!
Lavishly live bread making out loud any day of the week and create a delectable cinnamon bread that the whole family will crave.
