Cinnamon Roll Sunrise Loaf

Happy Sunday Lovelies! We are heading out to a family dinner tonight, but I wanted to hop on here and share a yummy breakfast recipe that I made for that family of mine this morning. We are already one loaf down. I couldn't keep those red heads away. They just gobbled up this bread like nobodies business. I made this bread last night, so it would be ready before church this morning. We have to be to church at 9, so having a breakfast ready to go in the morning saves me some precious time to "look good for Jesus", as my friend Janay always says. It always makes me laugh when she says it, but it so true! I always take a little bit of extra time on Sundays to look my best (it is also the only time I make sure my nails are chip free), so having something prepared ahead of time helps me in my glamor feat. This is a simple recipe (these are always my favorite kind) and if you leave off the glaze you could double the batch and freeze them for later in the month. Just pull it out to thaw the night before you want to eat it. I got this recipe from Gooseberry Patch's Freezer-Friendly Cookbook. I downloaded it onto my phone for under $5 and have been trying many of the recipes out. It has definitely inspired my love for freezer cooking again, which I will have to share in another post. Anyways I hope you can share this goodie with your loved ones this week. Have a fantastic Sunday!

Cinnamon Roll Sunrise Loaf

1 box of yellow cake mix with pudding
4 eggs
3/4 cup oil (I used coconut oil)
3/4 cup water
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup sugar
3 tbl cinnamon

Combine first 5 ingredients in your mixing bowl. Beat with electric mixer on high speed for 3 minutes. Pour half of your batter into 2 greased 8x4 loaf pans. Set aside. In a separate bowl combine sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle half evenly over batter in the loaf pans. Spread remaining batter evenly into loaf pans. Sprinkle the remaining sugar mixture onto of batter. Use a knife to gently swirl sugar and cinnamon into batter. Bake at 350' for 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool on wire racks.

For the glaze I mixed powdered sugar, melted margarine, vanilla, and milk together to create a glaze. I put it on the bread while it was cooling. It hardens as it sits and is oh so good!

  3. Oh wow, Danielle! I just saw this recipe an hour ago on your blog and I already have 2 loaves baking in the oven as I type this- haha! My mouth started watering for it the minute I saw it and I knew I had all the ingredients in my kitchen. Now my house smells WONDERFUL from the smell of it baking! Thank you for sharing this recipe! :)

    1. I am so happy you are making it! I just love when I see a new recipe and I have everything to make it. That is like the best ever! Enjoy!

  4. Danielle, have you ever used a yellow cake mix without the pudding in it for this recipe? I have lots of cake mixes, but none with the pudding. Looks so easy and delicious. I can't wait to try it! Thanks so much for sharing.

    1. I haven't. Let me know how it goes if you try it.
