Gluten-Free Cinnamon Roll Bread

As a gluten-free blogger I'm always asking my readers what foods they miss the most. Invariably the answer comes back ‘bread,’ followed closely by ‘pastries, especially cinnamon rolls.’ So I decided why not combine these two favorites and come up with a gluten-free recipe that satisfies both!

12 servings
Recipe Ingredient Details: 
2 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour (TRY: Cup4Cup)
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
¾ cup sugar
1 egg
cups milk
cup plain Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons unsalted butter (melted)
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
½ cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk
Recipe Instructions: 
Preheat oven to 350˚. Grease bottom and sides of a 9-inch loaf pan; set aside.
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. In a medium bowl, combine sugar, egg, milk, Greek yogurt and vanilla; add to dry ingredients, and mix until well combined. To make the swirl, in a small bowl, combine brown sugar, melted butter and cinnamon.
Pour about ⅓ of the batter into prepared loaf pan. Spoon ½ of swirl mix into a few spots in the batter; use a knife to swirl around. Top with another ⅓ of batter, and spread evenly. Repeat the swirl step. Add the last ⅓ of batter. Use knife to create swirls.
Bake in oven for 45–50 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean when inserted. Remove bread from oven, and allow to cool. In a small bowl, combine powdered sugar and milk; pour over bread.
