Cinnamon Bun Bread

This morning I made cinnamon bun bread.  I got the recipe from my friend Katy , who got it from Cary.  
It is easy and so delicious!!
I did not photograph the process of making making the bread to save the sanity of my family, and so we could eat the bread for breakfast and not lunch.
I did photograph the end result so your mouth will water.  
But first the recipe...

CINNAMON BUN BREAD, adapted from Baking Bites
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
4 tsp active dry or rapid rise yeast
2/3 cup warm milk
tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 large egg
(I added 1 tbsp of cinnamon to the flour mix)

3 tbsp butter, room temperature
cup brown sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 cup 
powdered sugar
1-2 tbsp milk or cream
(I skipped the icing this time around)

1. Lightly grease an 8×8-inch square baking pan.

2. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar and salt.

3. Dissolve the yeast in a measuring cup filled with the warmed milk, then stir milk mixture, vegetable oil, vanilla extract and egg into the flour mixture.

4. Mix until very smooth. Pour into prepared pan and let rest for 15 minutes.

5. While the dough rests, mix together butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a small bowl until all the butter has been incorporated into the sugar and mixture is crumbly.

6. Sprinkle evenly on top of rested dough and press the mixture down into the dough with your fingertips (or swirl in with a spatula.)

7. Place pan into a cold oven, then set the oven temperature to 350F. Bake for about 30 minutes, until bread is lightly browned at the edges and the center of the bread springs back when lightly pressed. Some of the sugar mixture on top may still be bubbling.
(set your pan on a cookie sheet or some tin foil because it can bubble over the top a bit.  Lets just say I need to clean my oven this afternoon)

8. Cool for at least 30 minutes before whisking the powdered sugar and milk together to form an icing and drizzling it onto the bread. Serve warm. Leftovers can be reheated in the microwave.

I know you want glass of milk after just looking at this scrumptiosness.

I can't believe you left off the icing! Sacrilege! I love to undercook the bread a bit so it's all gooey with the icing.
