My son is on school vacation.....again. Boy they get a lot of time off, don't they? Wish I had that much time off from work. Anyway, this will be another week of me cooking things for him to munch on while I'm at work.
So I started with this one - it's an old recipe that I pulled out of the archives. I haven't made this in ages. It's another one of those recipes from a church cookbook. I've changed a couple of things, just to give it even more yummy cinnamon flavor. Everyone loves this bread. So good warm with butter. It doesn't last very long in my house. Enjoy!
Quick Amish Cinnamon Bread
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoons baking soda
2 cups flour
½ cup cinnamon chips
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 and spray a loaf pan (9" x 5 1/2") with cooking spray. In a large bowl, cream together the egg, vanilla, butter and 1 cup of sugar until smooth. Add the buttermilk, flour, and baking soda and stir until just combined. Add the cinnamon chips and stir to incorporate. In a separate small bowl, mix together the 1/3 cup of sugar and cinnamon and set aside.
Pour 1/2 of the batter into the loaf pan. Sprinkle 3/4 of the cinnamon mixture on top of the batter then add the remaining batter. Sprinkle the last of cinnamon mixture over top of the batter, then swirl with a knife. Bake for 45-50 min. or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool in pan for 20 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.
