Cinnamon Coffee Cake Loaf

Lynda Atteberry Hoskins from Mathis, Texas offers this cinnamony loaf that tastes just like a coffee cake. "When I worked as an elementary school secretary, I used to take a slice of this cake with me in the mornings for a snack," she remembers.

    Easy recipe. I did find it to be quite sweet. I may make it again, but it will not be one of my favorites.

    really nice moist loaf- very quick to make. Sometimes I just put the cinnamon sugar mixture on the top and spray with a bit of a butter flavor spray- makes for a crunchy topping

    Just made this tonight. Very easy to make (I added chopped pecan to the cinnamon and sugar mixture). Very moist and just delicious. This is one of my favorites. I will be making this one often, my husband loved it.

    This is a very good recipe and easy to make. I substitute part Splenda granular for some of the regular sugar to make this lower sugar. It still tastes great and no one is the wiser. Use a good quality cinnamon like Korintje which is rich and flavorful. The buttermilk makes it nice and moist without adding too much fat and calories. You can also substitute some whole wheat flour. The bread will turn out more dense. I usually use a 50:50 ratio (for example if the recipe calls for 2 cups flour, I'll do 1 1/2 C. all-purpose flour & 1/2 C. whole wheat flour, or at the maximum, 1 C. each, white & whole wheat flour). It's yummy with coffee or hot cocoa on a cold winter morning.
