Cinnamon Swirl Quick Bread Recipe

Publisher Photo
Meet the Cook: When I was married, 26 years ago, I bought two popular cookbooks to learn the "basics". Now, I have over 2,000 cookbooks, booklets and recipe magazines I read like others read novels! I take my bread - which I've been making for 20 years - to potlucks and parties. Plus, my family's always loved it. My husband and I have two grown daughters and one granddaughter. -Helen Richardson, Shelbyville, Michigan

Great with whole wheat flour. Make it now! Fine after 45 minutes.

MY REVIEW

I made this delicious quick bread recently and it was a huge hit with my husband. The recipe is easy to prepare and I followed the directions exactly. However, it baked in 40 minutes so I suggest checking it early so it does not overbake. I will be preparing this again. Definitely worth five stars.

I am the contributor for this recipe way back when....lol. I used to just mix all the ingredients together (except the cinnamon and sugar) and then put 1/2 in pan and put about 2/3 of cinnamon mixture in (as you all suggested here) and then the rest of the batter and sprinkle rest of cinnamon sugar mixture on top. When you submit a recipe to the magazines they do change the recipe a bit. I am so glad you all enjoy this bread! I never drizzled glaze on top, but that would be good also. I now live in Florida and auctioned off all those cookbooks when we left MI.

This was fast, easy and delicious. I will always have to double this because one loaf won't be enough for my family of eight. I put about 2/3 of the cinnamon on top of the first layer of batter or else too much is lost when inverting the loaf. Also, haven't tried with buttermilk as it worked great with soured milk.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 7, 2013

I have made this bread so many times now, and it has become one of my go-to recipes. I have so many family and friends who ask for this bread that I always double the recipe, to have one loaf to keep at home and one to give away. I love that, other than the buttermilk, this uses ingredients that I always have on hand (and I've substituted milk/vinegar for buttermilk occasionally, with great results). The only change I make to the recipe is to add most - at least 2/3 - of the cinnamon-sugar to the batter and leave less for sprinkling on top, as I find that most of the cinnamon falls off when I invert the pan to remove the loaf. Fantastic recipe and one I'll be using for years to come.
