Swirled Cinnamon Bread is a melt in your mouth delicious-almost cake like quickbread recipe!

What is it about cold weather that makes you want to bake? This past weekend we had three days of flurries here in England-not very common in this part of the country. The first day it looked like a little dusting but after that it was just warm enough to keep it from sticking. I was a little disappointed because I can only imagine how gorgeous all these Cotswold thatched homes would look covered in snow!

It’s been snowing on and off for three days but it’s too wet to actually stick. We went to a nearby pub to warm up by the fire and enjoy the atmosphere-I’ll miss these simple times the most when we move this summer.

We made a failed attempt to go for a hike (the wind and cold made us pretty miserable) and instead settled into a local pub for a lunch by a fire-then it was home and I spent the rest of the day baking up a storm-including this delicious Swirled Cinnamon Bread. This is a sweet, almost cake-like quick bread based on the same recipe as my Cinnamon Apple Bread (which has been shared over 860,000 times so you know it’s good!)

Enjoy the cinnamon bread warm with a little butter or cooled on it’s own-it’s perfect either way!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar + 1 tablespoon extra if desired for top
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup milk
