This satisfying cinnamon bread recipe is slightly sweet and super delicious! It’s perfect with a cup of coffee or tea!
I can’t remember where I got this recipe. I want to say that my mom, Claire saw it and passed it on to me since she knew I love all things cinnamon.
I have been making this bread for many years and one of the times I made it, I put chocolate chips in it. Let’s just say that they didn’t improve it.
Isn’t that crazy? What can’t be improved with chocolate?? I know I was shocked. Did I dislike it with the chocolate chips inside? No, I certainly didn’t, but did I love it? No. That’s what surprised me. The chips couldn’t improve what this bread is all about.
Which is the cinnamony goodness.
So I made the decision to not make it with chocolate chips again. Christopher was shocked. He kept eyeing me suspiciously.
I’m sure he was wondering if I were a pod person pretending to be his wife.
Here are a few other breads I enjoy:
How to make cinnamon bread
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
I gather the dry ingredients which include flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
I dump them in my mixing bowl.
Now, I gather the wet ingredients.
I get out the buttermilk mix, 2 eggs, vanilla and olive oil. In a separate mixing bowl, I make one cup of buttermilk and I add the eggs, vanilla and olive oil.
I take my whisk and mix the wet ingredients together.
I greased my own bread pan because Christopher is not available. But, don’t worry, I wear disposable gloves to keep my hands grease free.
I pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix it all with my trusty spatula. I pour the cinnamon bread batter into the greased pan.
I also make the topping at this time. I get a small mixing bowl and add ¼ cup brown sugar, 2 teaspoons cinnamon and 3 tablespoons of butter. I get my dough cutter and mix the topping ingredients together.
I pour the topping on the batter.
I place the pan in the oven and bake the bread for 45 minutes.
I take it out of the oven and after 5 minutes, I remove the cinnamon bread from the pan and plop it onto a wire rack.
You can cut it warm if you like, but do so at your own risk and make sure you use a serrated edge knife.
Time to plate two pieces and eat them.
Let’s slather on some butter, shall we?
I hope you enjoyed this recipe.
