Easy Cinnamon Bread

I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas with your family...and that you are still in the glow of this wonderful time of the year. 
One of my goals for the season was to do more baking. I cranked out quite a bit of bread, so I think I met my goal. I did not make any candy and that is probably a good thing. If it is in front of me I tend to nibble it.

One of the breads that I made was  a recipe for Amish Cinnamon Bread. This is a recipe that my daughter gave to me last year sometime, and I am just now getting around to making it. It is a very easy and yummy quick bread. No yeast. For some reason when I read the word "yeast" I think "hard to make." I guess I need to work through that issue sometime...but later! 

The first time I baked this recipe I had a hard time getting the deep center baked. I kept adding 5 minutes, and another five minutes, then repeatedly testing with a toothpick to come out clean. I finally got the bread done...but the crust was a bit too crispy I think. I have forgotten how long this loaf was in the oven...but it seemed like forever.

Not to be outdone I mixed another bowl of batter and reconfigured the baking pans. Instead of the "two" loaves of bread I divided the dough into "three" Pyrex loaf pans. That fixed the baking time problem and gave me nice moist loaves of bread. we go for easy Cinnamon Bread with my adapted recipe.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray 3 Pyrex loaf pans with Pam, or I use Wilton's Bake Ease spray. Nothing ever sticks.
Use a mixer to cream sugar and butter, plus remaining ingredients. 
Divide dough. See below. 
Easy Cinnamon bread
Very easy and very tasty!  Yes, I had a nibble before I took the picture.


1 cup butter, softened not melted.
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 cups buttermilk (or 2 cups milk plus 2 tablespoons vinegar or lemon juice)
4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda

Cinnamon/sugar mixture:
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoons cinnamon 

Cream together 1 cup of  butter, 2 cups of sugar, and 2 eggs.  
Add milk, flour, and baking soda.  
Divide batter into three equal amounts and place into the three greased baking loaf pans.  
In a separate bowl mix the 1/3 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Sprinkle the cinnamon mixture on top of the batter in each pan. 
Swirl with a knife.  
Bake at 350 degrees for 40-50 min or until toothpick comes out clean.  
(The first time you bake this bread take a look at it about 30 minutes into the baking process. Test with toothpick and gauge the remaining cooking time. Ovens are different, pans are different, etc.) 

Cool in pan for 20 minutes before removing.
Optional, I drizzled a powdered sugar glaze onto the bread for a little extra sweetness. 

Amish Cinnamon Bread
This is a good breakfast bread, snack bread, or tea time bread. 

I hope that you like it. Enjoy! 

Thanks for stopping by.
