Servings 10


  • Vita Ice Acai Blueberry Pomegranate for serving
  • 1 ¼ tsp. Active Dry Yeast
  • 1 cup Milk warm to touch
  • 2 tbsp. Granulated Cane Sugar
  • ½ tsp. Kosher Salt
  • 2 Eggs
  • 4 cups All Purpose Flour
  • ¼ cup Melted Butter or Olive Oil
  • 2 tbsp. Softened Butter
  • ½ cup Granulated Cane Sugar
  • ¼ cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 tbsp. Ground Cinnamon

For the Glaze

  • ½ cup Powdered Sugar
  • 2 oz. Cream Cheese softened
  • 1 tbsp. Butter softened
  • 2 tbsp. Milk
  • ½ tsp. Vanilla Extract


To Make the Dough

  • Combine the yeast and 2 tablespoons sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer with ¼ cup warm water. Let sit 5 minutes.
  • Add the milk, salt, eggs, and 1 cup flour. Mix until combined. Add the remaining flour and knead 3-4 minutes. Add the butter to knead another 4-5 minutes, until a smooth and pliable dough.
  • Cover the dough to rise in a warm environment for 1-2 hours, until doubled in size.
  • Preheat oven to 375F. Line a large baking sheet pan with parchment paper.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to a large rectangle about 1/2”thick.
  • Using a spatula, spread the softened butter evenly over the dough.
  •  In a smaller bowl, mix the remaining sugars and ground cinnamon together. Sprinkle evenly over the dough and lightly press down with your hands.
  • Roll up tightly into a log-like shape, place on the prepared pan, then use kitchen scissors to cut diagonal slits ¾” deep down the log. Arrange the slits so they alternate sides. Let sit uncovered for 20 minutes.
  •  Brush with an egg wash or olive oil before baking until golden, about 20-30 minutes.

To Make the Glaze

  • Mix all ingredients together until smooth. Spread over the warm bread.
