Related Recipes: Cinnamon Swirl Bread – As close to a cinnamon roll as a bread can get and still be called bread rather than dessert. Rich, sweet, and light. This bread is for the cinnamon lover’s and is abundantly flavored with cinnamon, which is used twice in the bread recipe, and again in the cinnamon-sugar butter I serve it with Cinnamon Bun Pie – These rolls use a shortcut and they’re ready from start to finish in less than 30 minutes and they give Cinnabons a run for their money.

You’ll never have a need for storebought English muffins again, especially because this bread is spiked with cinnamon-sugar and raisins Baked Cinnamon Bun Donuts with Vanilla Cream Cheese Glaze – A cross between a Krispy Kreme donut and a Cinnabon cinnamon roll.

The squares use a shortcut and are a snap to make Cinnamon Oatmeal Date Bars with Chocolate Chunks (no-bake, vegan, gluten-free) – The two types of chocolate used on top is optional, and if removed the bars are a very healthy vegan and gluten-free portable granola bar that tastes like a bowl of cinnamon-flavored oatmeal Cinnamon Raisin Bread Smoothie (vegan, GF) – Tastes like drinking a glass of cinnamon-raisin bread, although no actual bread was used.

I have been researching cinnamon roll recipes to make actual cinnamon rolls like it’s my job. Like chocolate chip cookies, everyone seems to have a favorite recipe, way of making them, using varying techniques and ingredients. Between the dough itself, the filling, kneading techniques, and batch sizes, I am in ‘options’ and choices overload. But it’s been a fun research project. Do you have a favorite coffee cake? If you have a great recipe, tell me about it. Thanks for the Tiny Food Party Cookbook Giveaway entries for three winners – winners announced next post
