For this breakfast treat, you’ll need:

For the Bread

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

For the Cinnamon Swirl and Topping

  • ⅔ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

Substitutions and Additions

RAISINS: You can add raisins to the batter for this cinnamon bread. You can also add chopped pecans for a little bit of crunch.

VEGETABLE OIL: In this easy recipe, you can use melted butter in place of vegetable oil.

SOUR CREAM: You can substitute buttermilk for the sour cream in this cinnamon swirl bread.

How to Make This Cinnamon Roll Bread Recipe

Making cinnamon roll bread is a deliciously sweet treat that takes minimal effort. First, you will make a simple quick bread batter with pantry ingredients that you likely have on hand.

You will add the batter to the pan in thirds, alternating with a cinnamon-sugar mixture to create swirls of sweetness throughout your bread. Bake your bread for approximately an hour before slicing and serving.

Our step-by-step instructions will help you whip up a batch of this tasty bread.

PRO TIP:

This delicious recipe freezes really well. Make a double batch and freeze the second loaf for later.

STEP ONE: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line the 9×5-inch loaf pan with a parchment paper sling. Spray generously with Baker’s Joy or a generic version. Set it aside.

PRO TIP:

Lining the pan with the parchment paper sling will allow you to lift the entire loaf of bread out of the pan for easier cutting once cooled.

STEP TWO: Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and kosher salt to a medium-sized mixing bowl and whisk to combine.

STEP THREE: Add the milk, vegetable oil, sour cream, sugar, egg, and vanilla to a large mixing bowl. Whisk until all the ingredients are completely incorporated.

STEP FIVE: Add the sugar and ground cinnamon to a small bowl. Stir to combine.

STEP SIX: Spread ⅓ of the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Evenly sprinkle ¼ cup of the cinnamon-sugar mixture over the bottom batter layer.

STEP SEVEN: Spread ⅓ of the batter on top of the cinnamon layer. Evenly sprinkle ¼ cup of the cinnamon sugar mixture over the second batter layer.

STEP EIGHT: Spread the remaining batter over the second layer of the cinnamon mixture. Finally, sprinkle the remaining cinnamon mixture over the top of the final layer of batter. Bake for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes away clean. Allow the bread to cool completely. The longer the bread is allowed to rest, the easier it will be to slice. Slice into ½-inch sections.

PRO TIP:

Oven temperatures vary and may need to be recalibrated periodically to ensure they are accurate. Make sure to check your bread at the lower end of the recommended baking time.

How To Serve

Cinnamon roll quick bread makes a fantastic breakfast, dessert, or even a homemade gift for a friend or neighbor. Enjoy a slice along with a homemade pumpkin spice latte or homemade hot chocolate.

For breakfast, serve slices of cinnamon roll bread warm out of the oven with cream cheese or melted butter. It’s also delicious toasted and slathered in strawberry jam, raspberry jam, or honey for a sweet breakfast treat.

If you don’t have enough cinnamon for your liking, our Texas Roadhouse butter is a great addition to your cinnamon bread.

Try our peanut butter bread or rhubarb bread for two more ways to add something special to your breakfast table.
