This loaf of cinnamon swirl scone bread is one of my favorite things to come out of our kitchen this year and I’m so excited to share the recipe with you!
Scones of some variety are a staple at any family brunch we have, and have become a staple at brunches I host on my own. They are one of my favorite items to contribute to brunches and showers, and we love giving the dough as a hostess gift when we stay with friends and family. They make a wonderful, delicious, quick treat. Since scones are one of those breakfast items that you don’t have often, they always impress people, even though they aren’t difficult to make.
My love for scones is apparent here on the blog. I have shared a few types of scones throughout the years, including carrot cake scones with cream cheese glaze, gingerbread scones, and lavender Earl Grey scones, but in my opinion, this loaf is even better! It is everything I love about scones in easy-to-cut loaf form. It pairs perfectly with coffee or a lovely pot of tea and if you make it over the weekend you can cut slices to snack on throughout the week.
This cinnamon swirl scone bread has a crunchy exterior, a soft pillow interior and is studded with ribbons of cinnamon streusel. A combination of coffee cake, pull-apart bread and scones, it is the best of so many worlds. It is quick to throw together, and the leftovers (if you are lucky enough to have any) save better than individual scones, which I find to dry out after a day. Next-day slices make a wonderful breakfast, and a great snack for that 3pm slump (you know what I’m talking about). I always feel so fancy when I have fresh breakfast breads on a workday :)
Cinnamon swirl scone bread is absolutely amazing, and will transform your brunches. Whip it up and watch people swoon. I can’t get enough!
