Cinnamon Bread Recipe

Here is the recipe for the cinnamon bread pictured in my Bread of Life post.  I just ate two slices with butter for my supper.  Yum!



½  cup butter, softened

1  cup sugar

1 egg

1 cup buttermilk or 1 cup milk plus 1 tablespoon lemon juice

2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

Cinnamon/sugar mixture:

1/3 cups sugar

1  teaspoon cinnamon


Cream together butter,  sugar, and egg.  Add butter milk or milk and lemon juice, flour, and baking soda.  Put 1/2 of batter (or a little less) into greased loaf pan

Mix in separate bowl the 1/3 c sugar and cinnamon.  Sprinkle 3/4 of cinnamon mixture on top of the 1/2 batter in loaf pan.  Add remaining batter to pan; sprinkle with last of cinnamon topping.  Swirl with a knife.  Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 min or until toothpick tester comes clean.

Cool in pan for 20 minutes before removing from pan.

Note:  we drink only skim milk or 1% milk.  I used 1% milk and lemon juice in lieu of buttermilk and it came out great.

  1. I like the quilt too!!


    • Thank you! I love designing and making quilts! I especially like making smaller quilts from scraps most folks throw away. I use them all the time. Most quilt shops sell scrap bags of high priced fabric for pennies on the dollar so we can make things like this quilt for much less money than retail prices. Of course, you can’t always get prints and colors you want . . . I grab scrap bags when I see them and trim and sort by color and theme! The bread’s yummy too! lol
