Frosted Cinnamon Swirl Bread

Found a bread recipe I have to try From Taste Of Home Magazine-- I LOVE so many of their recipes by the way!
 Makes 1 8x4 loaf
Frosted Cinnamon Swirl Bread

* 1/2 cup warm milk (about 85 degrees F)
* 1 egg
* 3 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
* 2 tablespoons sugar
* 2 cups bread flour
* 1.25 teaspoon active dry yeast
* 1 tablespoon butter or margarine, melted
* 1/4 cup sugar-- I used brown sugar here
* 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
* 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar [you can add more by tablespoon until desired consistency similar to honey or ketchup]
* 1 teaspoons milk
* 1 TB softened or melted butter
* 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. Stir yeast in with warm milk and water.
2. In large bowl mix dry ingredients
3. Stir in yeast mixture add egg and butter.
4. Knead,[ 5 minutes by hand ]
5. Let rise in warm place (covered with damp cloth) [about 30-45 minutes in oven with JUST oven light on]
6. When doubled, punch down, and let it rise again.
6. When doubled again, turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Flatten by hand into a 10-in. x 8-in. rectangle, brush with butter. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over dough. Roll up tightly jelly-roll style, starting with a short side. Pinch seams and ends to seal. Place seam side down in greased 8-in. x 4-in. x 3-in. loaf pan. or 9 X 5 if you must.
3. Bake at 375 degrees F for 23-25 minutes in 8x4 pan. If using 9X5 pan, reduce cook time 3-5 minutes. It's done when golden and sounds hollow when you lightly knock on the top.  Remove from pan to wire rack to cool completely.
4. Combine glaze ingredients; spoon over loaf once cooled
