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
INGREDIENTS

* 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
* FILLING:
* 1 tablespoon butter or margarine, melted
* 1/4 cup sugar-- I used brown sugar here
* 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
* GLAZE:
* 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

DIRECTIONS

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
