I think most of you know Danni from Silo Hill Farm, so you can understand why I’m so happy to be sharing one of her fabulously irresistible recipes today! Cinnamon Bread is truly one of my favorites things to eat, and this one looks exceptional! I can smell it from here :).
This is not a complicated recipe. I think it is one of the first things we made in Home Economics in 8th grade. Remember when they called it that? Now they call it Family and Consumer Science. (Hmmm…as a teenage girl, those were not things that were on my mind. LOL!) But I do remember that when we made this bread, the halls of the school smelled heavenly and the boys were particularly nice that day, hoping to get a slice.
This recipe is like any quick-bread recipe, goes together fast (because Jr. High girls have the attention span of a gnat) and no yeast, which means no kneading.
Cinnamon Bread Recipe
1 Cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
2 Cups of Buttermilk (or 2 C. milk plus 2 Tblsp. vinegar)
4 Cups of flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2/3 Cups sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease two 9 x 5 loaf pans.
Cream butter, sugar and eggs. Add milk,flour and baking soda and mix thoroughly. Put 1/2 of the batter (1/4 in each) in bottom of pans. Sprinkle 3/4 of the cinnamon/sugar mixture on top. Add remaining batter to pans and sprinkle with the rest of the sugar mixture. Stick a knife in and swirl the batter around a little. Bake 35-40 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pan for 20 minutes and invert onto a plate. Cool completely before slicing. Enjoy!
Here are links to a few other recipes I’ve shared that are particularly yummy, in case you wake up feeling all Consumer Science-y.
