Quick CINNAMON Bread

Quick breads are so easy and just the right
 size for me. This is basically a coffee cake
baked in a loaf pan. It’s mixed up in
just a few minutes.

This cinnamon version is
one of our favorites.

I’ve used real buttermilk and I’ve
also made it with the substitute:
1C milk + 1T vinegar or lemon juice;
let it sit for 10 minutes.

Use the butter wrapper to grease the loaf pan.

Cream the softened butter and sugar.
Then mix in the egg and vanilla. I use a
 hand mixer, but you can also use a whisk.

Add the flour, baking soda, and nutmeg.
If you love nutmeg, add more. If you 
don’t like nutmeg, leave it out. I find 
that 1/2t is just right for me. 

You can mix everything using just one bowl.

Pour 1/2 the batter into your loaf pan.

Smooth out the top.

Sprinkle with about 3/4 of the cinnamon mix.

Top with the remaining batter and
remaining cinnamon mix. Pat it on a bit.

Swirl a knife through the batter once.

Bake @350º for about 45 minutes, or
 until a toothpick comes out clean.

Let sit in the pan for about 20 minutes.
Run a knife around the edge, for easy
removal. I place a paper towel over the
top before I flip it out to catch the loose
cinnamon sugar. The I use that to invert
it again right-side-up onto my platter.

Let it cool a bit and have a slice
while it is still warm. This is important. 
Your husband can assist here.

Enjoy with a cup of coffee,

 or tea.

It’s good leftover the next day. You can
toast it in a toaster oven or warm it
for a few seconds in the microwave.
Either way it’s a nice bread to have with
 your morning coffee or afternoon tea.

So easy to bake a loaf anytime!
