While cinnamon bread is a natural for breakfast, we love it so much we enjoy it all day long. This is a nice twist on traditional cinnamon swirl yeast breads. —Helen Richardson, Shelbyville, Michigan

"I LOVE THIS bread OMG!! I'VE MADE THIS SO MANY TIMES. I DON'T SWIRL THE CINNAMON, I just add it to the batter, I also divide the white sugar with 1/2 Splenda and 1/2 brown sugar in the batter. I don't do separate layers just pour it all in one bread pan, and then cover the top with brown sugar and more cinnamon. OHHHMYGOD!! THIS bread IS SO DELICIOUS! I've toasted it with just butter on it and I've put it in my waffle maker and made waffles with it topped with butter and sliced bananas and strawberries FANTASTIC!"

"Cinnamon is our favorite spice so this was a HUGE hit in my family. One of my son's loves it toasted with butter and cinnamon sugar for a truly delectable piece of cinnamon toast!"

"I felt this was overly sweet. The top of the bread was too crispy, not the crumbly sort, but what happens when you burn sugar.

I won't be making this again. Really bad."

"My second loaf is in the oven now. I made my first loaf this past weekend, just as directed in recipe. OMG, this is good stuff! As a matter of fact, it was so good, I lost the last serving because a mouse chewed through the Ziploc bag and had some, ruining my breakfast for the day. So, now with mouse traps set, a new loaf of cinnamonny goodness is baking away, ready for breakfast tomorrow. I baked in a glass loaf pan for 45 minutes last time and feel 50 minutes will be just right this time. easy peasy to put together, too. Did not use the glaze, and it was fine without it."

"I made this today and doubled the recipe to get 2 loaves. It came out perfectly with a nice fine crumb. I did make a couple of changes. I didn't have buttermilk so for each 1 cup milk, I subbed with 3/4 cup milk 1/4 cup vinegar and let it sit for 5 mins or so. For each 1/4 cup oil I used 1/8 cup applesauce 1/8cup canola oil. I also only used 3/4 cup sugar for each loaf of the bread. I planned to freeze one loaf do I didn't glaze that one as I wasn't sure how it would taste when thawed. Very simple to make. A great recipe for beginners!"

"I took this to a meeting and it was gone before I could try a slice, from across the room I saw people going back for seconds really quickly.

Didn't do the glaze and it took almost 1/2 an hour longer to cook but it got rave reviews from those who did get a piece!"
