Amish Cinnamon Bread


Hubby went back out to work this morning, so I was flipping through Pinterest trying to find a pancake recipe that I could have sworn that I pinned only to come up short >.<  But, I did come across this Amish Cinnamon Bread recipe from RedFly Creations and decided to give it a shot.  Granted, it wasn't for breakfast - that became a bowl of cereal.

I ended up baking this for about an hour instead of 45-50 minutes.  And I will definitely incorporate the cinnamon sugar differently next time.  But, it's still pretty good.  Especially with a little butter ;)

I'm thinking that as I goes stale that it might make some tasty French toast...

Amish Cinnamon Bread

(makes 2 loaves)

1 cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 cups buttermilk or 2 cups milk plus 2 tablespoons vinegar or lemon juice
4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda

Cinnamon/sugar mixture:
2/3 cups sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon 

Cream together butter, 2 cups of sugar, and eggs.  Add milk, flour, and baking soda.  Put 1/4 of batter into greased loaf pans.  Mix in separate bowl the 2/3 c sugar and cinnamon.  Sprinkle 3/4 of cinnamon mixture on top of the 1/2 batter in each pan.  Add remaining batter to pans; sprinkle with last of cinnamon topping.  Swirl with a knife.  Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 min.  or until toothpick tester come clean.  
Cool in pan for 20 minutes before removing from pan.
