Let's make something down-right memorable! This recipe comes from a diner Howard loved during his college years. His breakfast of choice? Their Cinnamon Swirl Raisin Bread! And no wonder, the sweet spices and creamy icing are heavenly, and now you can make your own version of this diner treat at home. Our copycat recipe for this seriously good dessert bread is another great way to make sweet memories in the kitchen.
What You'll Need
- 1 (11-ounce) can refrigerated French loaf bread

Mr. Food Test Kitchen Tip!
- We like cutting this into thick slices, buttering both sides of each slice, and toasting them on a griddle plan. If you can resist this, you are a very strong person.
