Quick Cinnamon Swirl

I am not  sure what the name of this bread/cake is… or whether it is a yeasted cake or a cake-like bread! My aunt gave me the recipe on a piece of paper.  I have tried to search for it online to give credit to the original recipe but could not find it. I am sure my aunt must have gotten the recipe from somewhere!!

This is a quick cinnamon bread/cake. Made with yeast but does not rise like a bread, just rises for 10 minutes.  Bakes for only 30 minutes so when you have a craving for cinnamon buns this could very well do the trick! Very simple to put together and delicious!

Here is the recipe

Cinnamon Swirl

Ingredients

Batter

1 1/2 cups flour

1/4 cup sugar

2 envelopes of Rapid Rise Yeast

2/3 cup very warm milk

2 tbsp butter, melted

2 tbsp oil

1 egg

 

Cinnamon Mixture

3 tbsp butter, melted

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

 

Icing

1 cup icing sugar

2 tbsp milk

1 tbsp butter, melted

1/2 tsp vanilla

 

***Since there is melted butter in all of the parts to this.. I just melted it all at once so, a total of 6 tbsp of butter

Method

DO NOT PRE-HEAT THE OVEN

Spray an 8×8 pan

  1. Mix the batter ingredients together and put into the prepared pan
  2. Let rise for 10 minutes (I forgot to do this and was wondering why it was a bit flat!! Still tasted fine!)
  3. Mix the cinnamon mixture together and put on top of the batter
  4. With your fingers, poke holes all over the batter making sure the topping gets down into the batter…
  5. Bake in a cold, NOT PRE-HEATED 350F oven
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes  I baked mine for 30 minutes
  7. Remove from the oven and let cool of 10 minutes
  8.  While this is cooling, mix up the icing
  9. Put the icing on top while warm. You can drizzle it or spread it all over like I did

***remember to let it rise for 10 minutes before baking so it is higher than the pictures I have posted!

      It doesn’t rose like a cake or bread. Just texture somewhere between bread and cake! Not meant to rose as much as either
      That’s why I don’t call it cake. Hope you weren’t disappointed !
