Brown Sugar Cinnamon Bread Recipe

This brown sugar cinnamon bread by Ninik Becker on YouTube is basically a cinnamon roll with raisins. The style of how the dough was cut and shape creates a twisted holiday bread. It’s a simple and easy bread recipe that’s not too sweet either. I would leave the raisins out for personal preference, but I love how the bread turned out. The presentation of the brown sugar cinnamon bread looks fancy with all of the swirls and twists. I think it’s a great way to make a sweet cinnamon bread for the holidays. This reminds me of an older traditional style of bread that I see in movies, so I need to try this style out. It’s crazy how just the way you twist or place the pieces of bread, it can create a beautiful shape once it’s done baking.



  • 2-1/2 cups plain flour
  • 2 tsp instant dry yeast
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 large egg, whisked.
  • 3 tbsp butter, melted.
  • 1/2 cup warm milk

Cinnamon Butter:

  • 1/2 cup soft butter
  • 1/2 cup powdered brown sugar
  • 1 – 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • A handful of chopped raisin


First, make the dough and cinnamon butter. Then, flatten out the dough into a rectangular shape, and spread the cinnamon butter evenly. Roll up the dough like a cinnamon roll.  Cut the roll into 8 small pieces.
