1 unsliced round loaf sourdough bread
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 cup sugar
1 1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 cup powdered sugar
1-2 Tbsp milk
1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2.To make Vanilla Honey Butter: Whip butter and 1/4 cup powdered sugar together until smooth; stir in honey and vanilla. Set aside. (You can use regular butter if desired)
3.Cut the bread lengthwise into 1/2" slices, without cutting through the bottom crust. Spread vanilla honey butter in between slices. Rotate the bread 90 degrees and slice the bread again into 1/2" pieces, without cutting through the bottom crust. Spread more vanilla honey butter in between new cuts. This doesn't need to be perfect - just make sure there is lots of butter in between all the cuts. Combine sugar and cinnamon. Generously sprinkle in between all cuts. (You may have extra butter and cinnamon sugar. It will just depend on how large your bread loaf is.)
4.Wrap in foil; place on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes, until bread is warm.( I think I did about 32 min) Unwrap cinnamon bread and place on serving platter. Combine powdered sugar and milk - adding milk until you get the consistency desired. Drizzle icing over bread and serve immediately.
* I got this recipe from plainchicken.com when I saw it for the first time I knew that it was something that I needed to try not only was it super easy but a great alternative to cinnamon rolls. I thought that it was good I was not in love with it sadly. I thought that the sourdough flavor stood out a lot and I think thats what kinda threw me off from it. The honey butter spread was really good and the crunchy tops of the cinnamon sugar was also a great touch. My kids and husband liked it I will give it a 4
