I decided to make cinnamon swirl bread yesterday afternoon, while my older boys were both at day camp and Bubby was visiting a friend. But somehow, I ended up taking a nap instead. Oops. Oh well, that gave the butter p l e n t y of time to soften.
I was inspired by this recipe from Saving Addiction, but since I don't have a bread maker (or, as Hubby will tell you, I am the bread maker), I adapted it with the help of good ol' Betty (Crocker, that is). I noticed the bread recipe was pretty close to Betty's Traditional Roll Dough recipe, so I used that recipe for the dough, and used Saving Addiction's recipe for the filling.
1/4 c. melted butter
1/3 c. sugar mixed with 2 t. ground cinnamon
