Why You’ll Love It

Easy. It’s as simple as mixing the wet ingredients in one bowl, dry in another, and then mixing together. The recipe is also all done by hand so no need for fancy kitchen equipment.

Crunchy top and soft inside. My favourite part of this loaf is the crunchy top that the cinnamon and sugar create. It also pair perfectly with the moist and soft inside of this loaf.

Unique. It’s a great option if you’re looking to try something new. Don’t get me wrong, I love lemon loaves and banana breads, but sometimes it’s nice to change it up!

Step by Step Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease and line a loaf pan with parchment paper.

Cinnamon Sugar Swirl

In a small bowl combine cinnamon, white sugar, and brown sugar. Mix well together and set aside.

Loaf Batter

In a large bowl whisk together the buttermilk, sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, and vegetable oil.

In a separate medium sized bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

Add dry ingredients into the wet and mix just until the dough comes together and no large lumps remain.

Pour 1/3 of the dough into your loaf pan and spread it evenly. Then add 1/2 of your cinnamon mixture on top, spreading evenly.

Add the remaining dough into the loaf pan and sprinkle the remaining cinnamon sugar mixture on top.

Take a butter knife and gently trace lines horizontally and then vertically to add the swirls, you want the knife to reach the bottom of the pan.

STORING THE LOAF

This loaf should be stored in an airtight container at room temperature and keep well for three days.

WHAT DOES SPOONED AND LEVELLED FLOUR MEAN?

Spooned and levelled flour refers to the way of measuring flour. To properly measure flour you should scoop spoonfuls of flour into your measuring cup and then scrape with a knife to level off the access. Scooping the measuring cup directly into your flour cause the flour to compress and getting more than the recipe calls for.

DO I NEED TO BRING MY COLD INGREDIENTS TO ROOM TEMPERATURE?

Yes you do. Room temperature ingredients break down easier in the batter. This means less mixing, which gives you a fluffy moist loaf.
