I thought this was dry (I didn't add the glaze - trying to save a few calories). There also seemed to be way too much sugar. I wouldn't make this again. It seemed bland and there was something off about the flavor.

Batter is way too thick and not much flavor at all. Will not be making again anytime soon.

This is a fabulous quick bread. It took just minutes to put together. A couple of minor adjustments that I will do when I make it in the future is mixing only 1/4 of a cup of sugar with the cinnamon for the topping. I also needed to bake the bread for 60 minutes. But, other than that a must make.

In my opinion, this is coffee cake, not cinnamon bread. Also, I agree with other reviewers that there is way too much sugar.

Delicious!! A couple notes: It took an hour and 5 minutes to bake all the way through. Based on other reviews, I swirled the ciinnamon-sugar in A LOT to avoid problems with the bottom layer not baking properly. There was also way too much cinnamon-sugar mixture for my taste. Next time I will combine the cinnamon with 1/4 cup sugar instead of 1/2. Finally, it says to "pour half the batter" into the pan, but what I had was a soft dough, like for biscuits. Not "batter." I had to plop it in with a spoon; there was no pouring. :) I was craving cinnamon and this recipe was just what I wanted. (I skipped the glaze entirely. This bread is plenty sweet without it.)

Is the batter supposed to be really thick? I had to press the batter with my fingers because it was too thick to spred with a spoon. It is in the oven now so will see if it is a keeper.

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 was great. I added more cinnamon and cut the sugar by half a cup.
