This cinnamon sugar bread is a flavourful bread that can be served both as a breakfast and as a dessert. I first made this bread for a friend who gave upon cakes. It was her birthday and I wanted to bake something special for her which she would enjoy. She loved it and I made it several times after that. Kids love to eat it as breakfast and take it school for snack.
Sending this recipe over to our annual baking event bake-a-thon 2019.
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Bake time: 55 minutes
Makes : 1 loaf of bread
All purpose flour : 2 cups
Baking soda : 1 teaspoon
Butter : 1/2 cup (1 stick) softened
Sugar : 1/2 cup
Light brown sugar : 1/2 cup packed
Egg : 1 large beaten
Buttermilk : 1 cup
Vanilla extract : 1 teaspoon
Sugar : 1/4 cup
Cinnamon powder: 1 1/2 teaspoons
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Grease or place a parchment paper on the bottom of the loaf pan, flour it and keep it aside.
Take a large bowl and cream together butter and both sugars until light and fluffy.
Add the egg, buttermilk, vanilla extract and mix well.
Add all purpose flour and baking soda and mix until just combined. Do not over mix. Batter will be slightly lumpy and that’s perfect.
In a small bowl, add sugar and cinnamon powder and mix well.
Add half of the batter to the loaf pan, sprinkle half of the cinnamon mixture and swirl batter with a knife.
Add rest of the batter to the loaf pan, sprinkle rest of the cinnamon mixture and swirl with a knife. Smooth the top.
Bake the bread for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the middle.
I added 1 teaspoon of cinnamon mixture on top of the bread but it’s optional.
Turn off the oven and let the bread rest until the pan is warm. Gently remove bread from the pan, let it cool for another 5 minutes before slicing.
Serve warm with some butter or store in an airtight container when is bread is at room temperature.
