Oh yes, bread can be quick and delicious at the same time. I’ve been in a premature holiday spirit lately and I decided to put together a rich, moist, and cinnamony quick bread. The bread is fantastic and your house will smell so good for hours!
Buttermilk Cinnamon Bread
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 1 tablespoon real vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 2 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350. I line my baking pan with foil so that it’s easy to just lift right out of the pan to cool. I also like to put a thin layer of cooking spray for baking on the foil.
Mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, and white sugar.
Add the egg, buttermilk, oil, and vanilla. Stir just until combined.
Pour half of the batter into the prepared pan. Mix the cinnamon and brown sugar together and sprinkle 2/3 of it over the batter. Pour the rest of the batter, smooth over the filling, and then sprinkle the remainder of the cinnamon/sugar mixture on top.
Bake for about 40 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean when inserted. Let cool completely – if you can possibly stand to leave it alone! — then slice and serve your buttermilk cinnamon bread with a nice cup of coffee or tea.
