I picked my favorite roll dough. I divided the dough roughly into thirds and used a one-pound chunk to make this loaf. (And an 8x4 inch loaf pan). With the other two parts, I just made rolls. If you want a bigger loaf, make sure to use more dough, and a larger loaf pan.
My family loved this and it was gone very quickly! This is so easy to make if you have dough around anyway; give it a try! Even using frozen dough if you have to. ;) If this isn't all gone in one day, try it toasted. It is very good that way!
Cinnamon Swirl Bread
1 pound (or a little more) favorite roll or bread dough
2 Tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 cup sugar
1-2 Tablespoons cinnamon, to taste
1. Let dough rise once (for one hour) and punch down. Butter an 8x4 inch loaf pan.
2. On a floured surface, roll dough into a rectangle- just a little longer than your loaf pan, and about 10-12 inches wide. Brush with melted butter. Mix cinnamon & sugar together in a small bowl, and sprinkle onto buttered dough. Press down lightly so it sticks into the dough.
3. Roll up, jelly-roll style (or cinnamon roll style!) keeping the roll as tight as you can. Pinch ends and edges to seal. Place in prepared pan, seam-side down.
4. Let rise about an hour, covered loosely with plastic wrap. During the last 15 minutes or so, pre-heat the oven to 350 F. When bread has risen, bake in the oven for about 30-45 minutes, or until done. If desired, rub top crust with melted butter.
