Buttermilk Cinnamon Bread

"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."

    This is so moist and delicious! Walnuts not required. Great with whole wheat flour.

    We enjoyed this bread warm from the oven! Don't know how it would taste the next day -- ours was gone and gave the second loaf the the neighbor. A keeper!

    My 22 year old son loved this bread! He thought it tasted like fresh cinnamon doughnuts. So much easier to make than fresh doughnuts! I'll be making this recipe again and again!

    This bread is addictively good. However, I did change it a little. Instead of using oil I used cinnamon applesauce, so yummy!

    The mini loaves are perfect for two. I freeze the rest and grab what I need when we camp.
