Cinnamon Bread (Scrummy Sunday)

Welcome to the first edition of Scrummy (scrumptious & yummy) Sunday! The plan is to post a tried and true recipe every Sunday. Keep an eye out this week for the first edition of Wardrobe Wednesday, a weekly fashion post!

Cinnamon Bread
This one is way too easy and makes perfect party food.

1 unsliced round loaf sourdough bread

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1 cup sugar
1 1/4 tsp cinnamon

1 cup powdered sugar
1-2 Tbsp milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

To make Vanilla Honey Butter: Whip butter and 1/4 cup powdered sugar together until smooth; stir in honey and vanilla. Set aside. (You can use regular butter if desired)

Cut the bread lengthwise into 1/2" slices, without cutting through the bottom crust. Spread vanilla honey butter in between slices. Rotate the bread 90 degrees and slice the bread again into 1/2" pieces, without cutting through the bottom crust. Spread more vanilla honey butter in between new cuts. This doesn't need to be perfect - just make sure there is lots of butter in between all the cuts. Combine sugar and cinnamon. Generously sprinkle in between all cuts. (You may have extra butter and cinnamon sugar. It will just depend on how large your bread loaf is.)

Wrap in foil; place on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes, until bread is warm. Unwrap cinnamon bread and place on serving platter. Combine powdered sugar and milk - adding milk until you get the consistency desired. Drizzle icing over bread and serve immediately.

Thank you very much to http://www.plainchicken.com/2011/06/cinnamon-roll-pulls.html for the recipe. When I tried it I found the sweetness a bit overwhelming. I would recommend trying the recipe without the cup of sugar and just sprinkling it with cinnamon. Also, the bread gets very stiff the next day because it is twice baked so definitely try to finish this one off day-of!
