This easy yeast cinnamon bread has a lot of cinnamon gooey goodness. Frozen bread dough is what makes this so easy! My family loves a lot of cinnamon but you can reduce the amount to your liking! I wanted a cinnamon swirl bread that didn't take a lot of hands on time and didn't dirty a lot of dishes! That is how this recipe was born!

How To Make easy cinnamon swirled bread

  • 1
    The night before, place frozen dough loaf in fridge according to package directions.
  • 2
    Morning of cooking, mix together the sugars and cinnamon.
  • 3
    Roll out dough on floured surface until it is about 1/4 in thick.
  • 4
    Brush dough with melted butter. Evenly sprinkle with sugar mixture to liking, reserving about 1-2 tablespoons.
  • 5
    Starting with a long edge roll up. Pinch together to seal and pinch and tuck ends under.
  • 6
    Brush rolled up dough with butter. Sprinkle with reserved sugar mixture.
  • 7
    Fold in half over itself to make a shorter loaf. Pinch seam all the way around and pinch and tuck end.
  • 8
    In a greased loaf pan, squish dough to fit evenly in pan. Cover with plastic wrap that is sprayed with nonstick spray.
  • 9
    Place in warm place and let rise until doubled in size.
  • 10
    Bake in preheated 350°f oven for 20-30 minutes (depending upon your oven),, until top is dark brown but not burnt.
  • 11
    Turn off oven and let sit in oven for 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Remove from pan immediately and place on a cooling rack.
  • 12
    Let rest for at least 30 minutes before cutting. I cut into thick slices, placing loaf on its side to make cutting easier with a serrated knife.

    Note: this is very heavy with cinnamon flavor, you can adjust the amount of cinnamon to your liking.
