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 flour mixture, provide what will be a heavily bordered crunch with a sweet cinnamon return that is soft on the inside.
So, to round out the incredible taste of this cinnamon bread recipe is the white, loosely guided icing.
If you are salivating now, wait until you create my cinnamon bread in your bread machine.
Truly, just the satisfying smell of this super easy-to-make cinnamon bread combined with the delicate but impactful cinnamon explosion in your mouth are the exact balance of bakery-crafted bread.
Using your bread machine and my cinnamon bread recipe, we are about to bake an art-form of food that you will love!

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 a nice make-to-take item as we visit, so you see why I create so many loaves.
Rest assured, today’s bread 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!

The Bread Machine & The Cinnamon Bread Recipe
I have used this one bread maker in fact, that is not at all expensive but creates what you see.
No, I have not changed to other brands.
So it would follow that your day can go on as planned while the bread machine produces the bread of your choice.
Just add the ingredients and do your thing!
Truly, this recipe is the one you want to try FIRST in your bread maker because it is easy and turns out perfect every time!
Cinnamon Bread Recipe
Again, the word optional just means, you can or can not add it in.
Adding it in will pleasantly surprise you with both the taste and look of the bread.
I’ve played with the ingredients over and over, and this has the best balance in my opinion.
However, my hero recipe (the original) will turn out fabulous every time!
I just like to always try new and make changes to make things better in my mind!
Upgrading is an essential factor in life right (it’s all in the mixture sugars that I’ve provided in the recipe)?
From Beginning To End
So how much time will this take?
What are you getting into for a time commitment?
A total of 4 hours and 55 minutes from beginning to end.
Please remember that only 10 minutes of that is actually ‘in-action’ time.
Meaning, that the only time you are EVER really working with the bread is at the beginning to add ingredients into the bread maker, and at the end, after it’s cooled to ice.
A whopping 10 minutes of actionable time.
The rest of the time is the bread maker doing the work and cooling time!

Allow to cook and when finished remove immediately to a cooling rack.
Remove the paddle with the paddle hook puller, use mitts to avoid being burned.
Once the paddle is removed, stand the bread right side up again and allow to cool.
I always use a wooden board for cooling.
After the bread has cooled (at least one hour), you can ice the bread.
Use the simple icing recipe up above combining the ingredients and adding the water ONE Tablespoon at a time. Be Stingy with the water if you prefer the icing NOT to run (in other words add less).
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 icing is better to work with.
Be stingy with the water when prepping the icing, more water, makes thinner ice.
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!
