Quick and Easy Cinnamon Bun Bread
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour1/3 cup sugar1/4 tsp salt4 tsp active dry or rapid rise yeast2/3 cup warm milk (100-110F; low fat is fine)3 tbsp vegetable oil1/2 tsp vanilla extract1 large egg
Filling/Topping3 tbsp butter, room temperature3/4 cup brown sugar1 tsp ground cinnamon pinch ground cardamom
Icing 1 cup powdered sugar1-2 tbsp milk or cream
Lightly grease an 8×8-inch square baking pan.In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar and salt. Dissolve the yeast in a measuring cup filled with the warmed milk, then stir milk mixture, vegetable oil, vanilla extract and egg into the flour mixture. Mix well, until very smooth. Pour into prepared pan and let rest for 15 minutes.While the dough rests, mix together butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and cardamom in a small bowl using a fork until all the butter has been incorporated into the sugar and mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle evenly on top of rested dough and press the mixture down into the dough with your fingertips (or swirl in with a spatula.)Place pan into a cold oven, then set the oven temperature to 350F.Bake for about 30 minutes, until bread is lightly browned at the edges and the center of the bread springs back when lightly pressed. Some of the sugar mixture on top may still be bubbling.Cool for at least 30 minutes before whisking the powdered sugar and milk together to form an icing and drizzling it onto the bread.Serve warm. Leftovers can be reheated in the microwave.
Serves 9.
This was my first time using yeast!!! So I'm pretty happy it rose and didn't taste nasty! This is actually a recipe borrowed from www.bakingbites.com
