Swirl Cinnamon Bread Recipe

Swirl Cinnamon Bread Recipe

If you like cinnamon, you’ll love this quick bread! It’s crusty on top, soft and moist inside—and one of my very most-requested recipes. I always make extra loaves for the holidays and give them to family and friends. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 45 min. + cooling YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and salt. In a small bowl, whisk egg, yogurt, oil and vanilla. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and remaining cinnamon.
