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.

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.

I have used this recipe and it's great! It reminds me of a bread and a coffee cake all in 1! When I bake this bread, I take it for our coffee time at our chapel on Sunday mornings! Thank you for sharing this recipe!
