I won’t apologize….I’ll just tell you the truth. I my way into Hubby’s heart from baking. I’ve gotten really good at spotting recipes that I know Hubby will like just by reading the ingredients. I saw this recipe in my Facebook feed and knew immediately that I was going to give it a try…
First reason-It looked YUMMY!!
Second reason-I felt so awful that Hubby was fighting the cold to get the cattle fed. It was 40 below wind chill here Sunday morning so I thought this might be a nice treat for him to come home to.
Looks yummy, right?? Best yet, it is super-super easy. There is no making a bread dough with yeast. There is no rising. It’s really more like a coffee cake….it’s a must try recipe. Here’s how it looks sliced.
Ready for the recipe…it’s easy.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/3 cup plain greek yogurt, or sour cream (I had vanilla greek yogurt so I used that)
1/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled slightly
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 – 3 teaspoons cream or milk (as needed for consistency)
Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray a loaf pan with cooking spray. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, vanilla, and yogurt or sour cream. Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture, stirring with a spoon just until combined. Pour into the prepared loaf pan.
In a small bowl, stir the Swirl ingredients together. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto the top of the bread; then use a knife to swirl it a couple of times into the batter. (Don’t overmix it).
Bake for 45-50 minutes or until the center tests done with a toothpick.
Remove from the oven and cool for 15 minutes in the pan on a wire rack. Remove bread from the pan and cool completely on the rack.
Make the Glaze by whisking the ingredients together in a small bowl until smooth, adding a dab of milk at a time until a good drizzling consistency is reached. When the bread is completely cool, drizzle the glaze over the top.
I didn’t see anywhere to credit the recipe to or to link to.
As soon as the bread came out of the oven I knew I had to quick snap some pictures because I knew it would be gone in a flash. I also knew that I needed to immediately sit down at the computer and write this post so I didn’t loose the recipe!!
