2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon of baking yeast
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup of sugar
1 egg, at room temperature
1 cup of milk
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
1/3 cup plain Greek yogurt or crème fraîche
1/3 cup of sugar
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter, melted and slightly cooled (water can be used instead)
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 to 3 teaspoons of cream or milk (depending on consistency)
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Butter or spray a glass bread pan.
In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, vanilla and yogurt or cream. Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture, stirring with a spoon until well blended. Pour into the prepared bread pan.
In a small bowl, mix the Swirl ingredients. Place teaspoons on top of the bread, then use a knife to swirl it two or three times in the dough. (Do not over mix).
Bake for 45-50 minutes or until the center is tested with a toothpick.
Remove from the oven and cool for 15 minutes in the pan on a wire rack. Remove bread from pan and cool completely on rack.
Prepare the icing by whisking the ingredients in a small bowl until smooth, adding a knob of milk at a time until a good coulis is obtained. When the bread is completely cooled, pour the icing over it.
