  • Bread:
  • 2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup whole buttermilk
  • ½ cup butter melted and cooled
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • Cinnamon swirl:
  • 4 Tbsp butter melted
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
  • Glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 Tbsp heavy cream plus additional as needed to thin
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 9 x 5-inch metal non-stick loaf pan with baking spray. Set aside.
  • In a medium size mixing bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, melted butter, eggs and vanilla.
  • Add the wet to the dry ingredients mixing until fully combined.
  • To make the cinnamon swirl, mix together the melted butter, brown sugar and ground cinnamon.
  • Pour 1/2 of the batter into the loaf pan. Dollops 1/2 of the cinnamon swirl mixture over the batter then use a knife to swirl it through the batter. Top with the remaining batter and cinnamon and repeat swirling the cinnamon through the batter.
  • Bake for 40 minutes then check the center with a toothpick for doneness. Cover with a piece of aluminum foil and continue to bake for an additional 10-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes back clean.
  • Cool on a cooling rack in the pan for 1 hour then remove from the pan to cool completely.
  • To make the glaze, mix together the powered sugar with 3 Tbsp of heavy cream and vanilla extract. Add additional cream 1 Tbsp at a time until it reaches spreading consistency. Pour over the cooled cinnamon roll bread.


If you're unable to find whole buttermilk use a low fat but not fat free buttermilk for the best results.
