"I was looking for a way to use some buttermilk that I had from another recipe and I decided to give this cinnamon bread a try. It was a hit with the kids and husband! I saved the recipe and we will definitely make it again. A nice treat for breakfast with some coffee or an afternoon snack. The cinnamon swirls are fun and it is quick to make."

"I just made this recipe and it is almost gone! We all absolutely loved it! I do have to admit that this recipe tastes more like cake than bread. No complaints for this super easy recipe. I did not have buttermilk so I just used 1cup of milk, added 1TBS of vinegar and let it sour. bread was really moist and flavorful. I will make it again tomorrow for our kids Sunday School class."

"I have used this recipe and it's great! It reminds me of a bread and a coffee cake all in 1! When I bake this bread, I take it for our coffee time at our chapel on Sunday mornings! Thank you for sharing this recipe!"
