Buttermilk Cinnamon Bread Recipe

"Cinnamon swirled through the batter gives this bread its pretty pattern", informs Aloma Robinson from Clarkston, Michigan. "It looks so fancy yet is very simple. It freezes well, too."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 55 min. YIELD:32 servings


  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2-1/2 cups sugar, divided
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

Fill two greased 8-in. x 4-in. or five greased 5-3/4-in. x 3-in. x 2-in. loaf pans about a third full. Combine cinnamon and remaining sugar; sprinkle half over the batter. Top with remaining batter and cinnamon-sugar. Swirl batter with a knife. Sprinkle with nuts.
