Easy cinnamon bread, good for breakfast or dessert!

This is a recipe I found today on Cooks.com. I had a yellow cake mix and a vanilla pudding mix in my cupboard and wanted to dress those up some. The final product is a mix between bread and pound cake and is absolutely delicious! It is really easy to make, a huge plus for me and easy to chew - also good for me! Here is all you need:

Ingredients

1 box yellow cake mix

1 small box instant vanilla pudding mix

4 eggs (add one at a time)

3/4 cup oil

3/4 cup water

1 tsp. vanilla extract

For the cinnamon/sugar blend use:

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 Tbsp cinnamon (I used Penzey's Vietnamese cinnamon and my kitchen smells like a pack of Big Red!)

Directions

Place the first six ingredients together in a mixing bowl and blend on high for 8 minutes. I love my KitchenAid blender, it makes everything so much easier. Grease two loaf pans generously with Pam. Fill each pan halfway and then sprinkle the cinnamon/sugar blend in a layer. Then top off with the rest of the batter and sprinkle the loaf with the remaining sugar blend. I swirled a knife thru each loaf to marble the cinnamon throughout and to make it pretty when it is cut. I then baked the loaves for 45 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Cool and then glaze with frosting.

For the glaze you will need:

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

2 Tbsp milk

Add the milk I Tbsp at a time and add a little more if you need to reach the desired consistency. Drizzle over the loaf and enjoy! Beautiful and yummy, this is a great snack for any time of the day!

What is your favorite cake mix flavor to use in baking other than cakes?

      Let me know how yours come out! Thanks for reading the hub. I love easy recipes and this is so easy. It would definitely be good without the frosting and done in cupcake form,too, I think.

      I bet this would be good even without the icing, having the brown sugar. I will definitely try it!
