vanilla icing

  • 1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1 ½ tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Cut dough into small, 1 inch pieces. Set aside.
  • Place sugar and cinnamon into a small bowl and toss together until completely mixed.
  • Dip dough pieces into melted butter and shake off excess.
  • Next, dredge buttered dough pieces into cinnamon-sugar mixture until well coated.
  • Grease mini loaf pans and begin filling with coated pieces of dough until pans are filled.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until sticky and golden brown. Remove loaves from pans, onto a cooling rack and allow messy breads to cool until just slightly warm.
  • For icing: Place sugar, milk and vanilla in a small mixing bowl and stir together with a fork (using a whisk will cause air bubbles to form in the icing).
  • Drizzle icing over messy bread loaves and serve.
