Dolly Parton’s Cinnamon Bread

Serves 8; makes 2 loaves

Vegetable oil cooking spray

1/2 cup sugar

1 1/2 tbsp cinnamon

1 1-lb loaf frozen bread dough, thawed

4 tbsp (1/2 stick) butter, melted

1 cup powdered sugar, sifted

2 tbsp water or fresh lemon juice, plus more as needed

1. Coat two 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 x 2 1/2–inch loaf pans with vegetable oil cooking spray. In a shallow dish, combine the sugar and cinnamon and set aside.

2. Cut the dough lengthwise into two pieces. Make four shallow, crosswise slits in each piece. Brush the loaves all over with butter. Roll each loaf in the cinnamon mixture, packing it into the creases. Place loaves in the prepared pans and set aside in a warm place to rise for 30 minutes.

3. As the bread rises, preheat oven to 300 degrees.

4. Bake the bread, turning the pans around once, for 35 minutes or until the top is golden and a tap on the bottom of the pan yields a hollow sound.

5. Meanwhile, make the glaze. In a small bowl, vigorously stir together the powdered sugar and water (or lemon juice), adding more liquid as needed, until the mixture is smooth. Turn the breads out onto a rack while they’re still warm; drizzle with the glaze.
