Braided Cinnamon Bread

Braided Cinnamon Bread

I’m so happy to share this recipe with you today because it’s part of a new partnership with Go Bold with Butter! The site is devoted to cooking and baking with REAL Butter, and funded by the American Butter Institute. When they asked me to participate, I jumped on the chance to be a butter ambassador (I mean. Butter. Ambassador. Right!?). I’ll be developing original recipes for them twice a month using real butter and dairy.

Braided Cinnamon Bread

My first offering is this swoon-worthy braided cinnamon loaf. It looks so fancy when it’s all braided up, but the technique is so easy! Just roll the bread as you would cinnamon rolls, and cut it down the center lengthwise.

Then you just cross the two pieces over one another until they are all twisted together. Transfer to a pan and bake! It’s easier than it looks, and I think you’ll love getting this beautiful end result in your own kitchen. The baked loaf looks like it comes from a fancy bakery!

I love to eat this bread as-is, but it can also be sweetened with a simple milk glaze (confectioners’ sugar and milk).

I love that you are a butter ambassador. Butter will get the credit it deserves with you shining a glossy light on its golden goodness.

Did the ambassadorship come with a sash? You really need a sash…and maybe a tiara.?

Your recipe differs on "the Go Better with Butter: site . there you have TWO rolls being split into two for braiding, here you state one roll being divided into two for braiding. Which is it….. Or just a matter of preference? I'll check to see if there are other differences. 🙂

Hi Tabby! The recipe yields 2 loaves. The pictures in this blog post are just examples of how to braid both loaves.

A round cake tin will work well if you position the braid into a wreath (circle) shape instead of a loaf.
