Cinnamon Swirl Breakfast Bread – A traditional cinnamon swirl bread. A simple yet perfect yeast bread with just the right amount of spice. Perfect for breakfast, brunch or as toast.
Can you believe Mother’s Day is just around the corner? Wow. Spring is flying by in the blink of an eye. I’m holding on tight desperately trying to get it to slow down. We’ve been able to do homework out on the glider, squirt water guns and pick fresh lilacs from the backyard.
This boys warms my heart. He may be all boy but he’s got some sweetness in there too. I cut some lilacs for the kitchen and my dude came right alongside and cut some for himself. He proceeded to blow them and sniff them. Ahh…the innocence of children.
So for today the spotlight is on you, cinnamon swirl breakfast bread. You totally shine. You don’t need lots of words or convincing. You just shine right through. You and that slab of butter…you do.
Perfect for lunch or brunch. Toasted or not. Buttered or not. And oh so perfect for French Toast. Gimme. Gimme.
So I was all proud of making this beauty of a bread. My hubby comes home and asks, “Where are the raisins?” He’s not being ungrateful. It’s just this ‘thing’ we have now. I hardly ever bake with them and he is always wanting to know about their existence.
So I told him surely next time I may this bread there will be raisins dear. But I personally thought it was fabulous on it’s own. But hey I’m not the raisin freak. Feel free to add them as you wish, my dear friends. I won’t shun you or call you a raisin freak. I promise!
I do love swirl breads. I made rye bread recently and be still my heart. I couldn’t get enough of those swirls. So I’m trying to think of other swirl breads I can try. Got any suggestions? I’d love to hear them in the comments. Got any ideas even if they don’t presently exist? I’m all ears for those too.
Thanks for being here friends!
Have a great week! Hope it’s filled with good food and your favorite people around the table.
Til we meet and eat again,
