There is a restaurant here in my town called Kneaders (it’s in other towns too, you can find out if it’s in your town here) that is a family favorite of ours. This recipe came in a little flyer that they threw in with our lunch the other day and I just happened to have a loaf of their Chunky Cinnamon Bread in my freezer so I prepared it last night for brunch today and it seriously could not have been any easier or more delicious! If you don’t have a Kneaders near you, so sorry, then I’m sure you could try another kind of cinnamon bread just be sure and slice it nice and thick. We decided that this would be the perfect Christmas morning breakfast.
1 loaf Kneaders Chunky Cinnamon Bread
1 tablespoon brown sugar (I think I might add 2 next time)
1 tablespoon vanilla
3 cups milk
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter
Slice bread into 8 pieces. Butter 9 x 13″ dish generously. Place 6 bread slices in dish then cut remaining 2 slices into smaller pieces to fill the spaces in the pan. (6 slices fully filled my dish so I just put the remaining 2 into another smaller dish.) Mix eggs, brown sugar, vanilla, milk and salt together and then pour over bread. Cut butter into small pieces and dot over top of bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight or for at least 4 hours. Uncover and bake at 350 for 45 – 50 minutes.
