Easy Cinnamon Bread

Craving cinnamon bread? Look no further.

Use this simple recipe to create a mix between bread and pound cake that is absolutely delicious! It is really easy to make, a huge plus for me, and is easy to chew—also good for me!


  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1 small box of instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 4 eggs (add one at a time)
  • 3/4 cup oil
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the cinnamon/sugar blend use:

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon (I used Penzey's Vietnamese cinnamon and my kitchen smells like a pack of Big Red!)


  1. Place the first six ingredients together in a mixing bowl, and blend on high for 8 minutes. I love my KitchenAid blender, it makes everything so much easier.
  2. Grease two loaf pans generously with Pam.
  3. Fill each pan halfway and then sprinkle the cinnamon/sugar blend in a layer.
  4. Then top off with the rest of the batter and sprinkle the loaf with the remaining sugar blend. I swirled a knife through each loaf to marble the cinnamon throughout and to make it pretty when it is cut.
  5. Bake the loaves for 45 minutes at 350°F.
  6. Cool, and then glaze with frosting.

For the glaze, you will need:

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  1. Add the milk 1 tablespoon at a time, and add a little more if you need to reach the desired consistency.
  2. Drizzle over the loaf and enjoy!

Beautiful and yummy, this is a great snack for any time of the day!
