Simply Amazing Cinnamon Swirl Wheat Bread

Happy Friday!! I hope that you all have had a good week and will be able to have a relaxing weekend.  I have a recipe for you that will get a relaxing weekend started for you! This bread makes your house smell amazing from the dough cycle to the time you take it out of the oven! The added nutmeg and cinnamon to the dough gives the bread an added hint of spiciness. 🙂

The filling makes it taste like cinnamon roll bread, tasting great alone or toasted. This would also work well as thick slices of french toast! Just make sure to roll the dough tightly so that it bakes together well. I have had it were the pieces fall apart when it gets loose. Still tastes great, just doesn’t make it great to handle! 🙂

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Thanks for sharing! I am excited to make this in mini-loaves as hostess gifts for an upcoming baby shower being thrown in my honor (along with some homemade cinnamon butter.) Looks delicious and simple!

I've never used the dough cycle on my bread machine before, but this makes me want to try it!

Once I tried my dough cycle, I was hooked! :) It definitely makes bread easier and faster to make!
