Cinnamon Roll Quick Bread

Everything you love about a cinnamon roll is baked into this tasty quick bread! Topped with cream cheese frosting, this is bound to be a favorite with all!

Last week, my hubby whipped up a batch of his Ooey Gooey Cinnamon Rolls for a friend of mine. We ended up having leftover cream cheese frosting and if you’ve ever tried it, you know you can’t waste that stuff!

Well, I decided to make a cinnamon sugar bread and simply drizzle the frosting on top. As my kids were enjoying their slices, they each called this “cinnamon roll bread”, hence the title of this recipe! The bread is moist, flavorful, and has just the right amount of sugar/cinnamon!


My kids said it was a new favorite of theirs and begged me to make it again the next day!

The best part about this bread is how simple it is! You most likely already have the ingredients needed on hand. You can make the frosting to drizzle, or keep things simple and omit the frosting altogether.

This bread would be tasty paired with coffee and a bit of butter, or by itself as a treat!

My hubby brought a few mini loaves into work the next day and within an hour, the plate was cleared off and everyone said they loved it!

Whether whipping up a batch of my Snickerdoodle Bread or this tasty Cinnamon Roll Quick Bread, you’re sure to want to go back for seconds!

  11. Allow bread to cool for about 5 minutes before removing from pans and placing on cooling rack.
