Cinnamon Bread Recipe

August 9, 2013

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!

CINNAMON BREAD

Batter:

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

Batter:

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.
