Reviews for Cinnamon Swirl Breakfast Bread
"So simple and absolutely delicious!!"
"I made one loaf, and 12 rolls. I only iced the rolls as the bread was perfect without it."
"My husband was craving cinnamon bread so I looked online for a great recipe and decides to try this one. Oh my, I'm so glad I did! I make a lot of bread, and I think this is the best bread I've ever tasted! I made it a little more "heart healthy" and used olive oil in place of butter and even used two cups of wheat flour and it still tasted wonderful! I also (like another reviewer) didn't use the glaze on top because I thought the sweetness was just perfect without the extra sugar. I highly recommend this recipe. Thanks :)"
"VERY Easy. Very delicious. I have been told it's the most delicious bread folks have ever tasted. LOVE IT! Makes great gifts and a top seller at bake sales"
"My family loves this recipe. It makes two loaves so I freeze one for later."
"Tastes just like a cinnamon roll. Excellent."
"I thought the bread was sweet enough so I didn't make the glaze for it. And I was right - it was still delicious without all the extra sugar!"
