Reviews forCountry Cinnamon Swirl Bread
"Excellent recipe. Have been making it for years."
"I was looking for a way to use some buttermilk that I had from another recipe and I decided to give this cinnamon bread a try. It was a hit with the kids and husband! I saved the recipe and we will definitely make it again. A nice treat for breakfast with some coffee or an afternoon snack. The cinnamon swirls are fun and it is quick to make."
"Very good and easy to make a keeper"
"A wonderful bread...especially at the holidays!~ Theresa"
"Delicious! My grandchildren loved this bread!"
"I just made this recipe and it is almost gone! We all absolutely loved it! I do have to admit that this recipe tastes more like cake than bread. No complaints for this super easy recipe. I did not have buttermilk so I just used 1cup of milk, added 1TBS of vinegar and let it sour. bread was really moist and flavorful. I will make it again tomorrow for our kids Sunday School class."
"This bread is very moist and tasty. I have made it many times. It is nice to give as a gift too."
