When i saw this recipe in a magazine, i knew it would come in handy one day. The one day came when i had guests and i had no plans for breakfast, there were no sausages nor bread and i had only 1 egg but i had this recipe. The wonderful part in this recipe was, - Prep Time = 20 minutes, Bake for 25 - 30 minutes and breakfast is ready. You would not imagine that you could make a simple, delicious yeasted 1 dish cinnamon swirl bread where there was no need for rising. The rising and baking happened as soon as prep time was over, when the dish was put into the oven and in a COLD oven, yes, cold oven where no preheating as required.
