I was skeptical when I found this recipe. Quick breads have always been touch and go with me- some work, some fail spectacularly. Quick bread success has, for me, been hard to come by. But this simple recipe was fool-proof through and through. It only took minutes to mix up and pop in the oven, and after 45 minutes of the tortuously delicious smell of cinnamon and sugar wafting through the air, I was glad that it only took minutes to scarf down two pieces of this simple, successful quick bread.
Cinnamon Sugar Breakfast Bread
1/3 cup sugar
2-4 tsp of cinnamon
2 cups flour
1 TB baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup milk
1/3 cup oil
Preheat the oven to 350. Mix together the 1/3 cup sugar and 2-4 tsp of cinnamon (amount based on taste). Set aside.
Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Add the egg, vanilla, milk, and oil and mix only until all the dry ingredients are wet.
In a greased loaf pan, pour in 1/2 of the batter. Sprinkle the cinnamon/sugar mix, then top with the remaining batter. Sprinkle with additional cinnamon/sugar if desired.
Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan and placing on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container, ziploc, or aluminum foil.
I would highly recommend heating up and topping with butter for a tasty breakfast treat!
