In my opinion, the best way to start a Monday is with a no-brainer.
This cinnamon roll quick bread definitely fits the bill. You are also almost guaranteed to have all the ingredients that you need in your pantry. This is definitely a Monday kind of recipe.
This very simple bread comes together in less than 10 minutes and is deliciously simple and easy.
Lightly sweetened bread swirled with a buttery cinnamon/brown sugar mixture? How could that not be good?
Drizzled with a sugar and cream glaze? Don’t mind if I do.
Eat it warm out of the oven with a cup of coffee or tea, and say goodbye to your case of the Mondays.
Recipe adapted from Our Table for Seven.
For the bread:
2 cups of all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/4 cups heavy cream, half and half, or milk (the higher the fat content of whatever you use, the better.)
1/3 cup of plain or vanilla yogurt or sour cream
1 tsp vanilla
For the cinnamon swirl:
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons melted butter
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
For the icing:
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons heavy cream, half and half, or milk.
Preheat your oven to 350°. Grease a 9 inch loaf pan and line it with a parchment paper sling.
Add sugar, egg, yogurt, vanilla, and cream into a large bowl and mix well until smooth. Add flour, baking powder, and salt to the wet mixture, and mix until just combined. Pour about 1/3 of the batter into your prepared pan.
Mix your cinnamon/sugar/butter mixture together and dollop about half of it in different spots all over the top of the batter in your pan. Add another 1/3 of your batter over the top of the cinnamon/sugar mixture and spread it out evenly (batter will be thick, so it doesn’t have to be perfect) and then dollop the remaining cinnamon/sugar mixture over the top of that. Pour the remaining batter on top of that, spread it out evenly, and then use a knife to swirl the batter all around inside the pan.
Place the pan into the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Mix glaze ingredients together. When bread has cooled out of the oven for about 15 minutes, drizzle with glaze, and then let it set. Enjoy warm or cold. Enjoy!

Do you pour the icing on when it is in the pan, or after you remove it from the pan?
