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...
