Cinnamon Swirl Bread

I love an easy, quick bread recipe.   I needed to make a quick breakfast item – and this worked out perfectly.   I only had a tiny slice of the end of this bread – but it was moist and full of cinnamon-y deliciousness!    And look how pretty it is when cut and plated…


(makes 1 loaf)

  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup canola oil


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease the bottom and sides of a 9″x5″x3″ loaf pan.

2. Combine the brown sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.

3. Combine the white sugar, flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl.

4.  In a separate bowl, beat egg. Stir in buttermilk, vanilla and oil.

5. Make a well in the flour mixture and add the egg/buttermilk mixture. Stir just until mixed. Do not over-mix.

6. Pour half of the batter into loaf pan. Sprinkle with half of the cinnamon mixture. Repeat. With a wide rubber scraper or spatula, swirl mixtures together with a down and up circular motion.

7. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until done. Cool in pan for about 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely on a wire rack.
