Buttermilk Cinnamon Bread

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by KatMcC

I got this from a magazine, but have altered it some. I use buttermilk powder mixed with water in place of the fresh buttermilk. I wrap the loaves after they are cool to touch in plastic wrap and aluminum foil. That makes it sticky and good otherwise it will be crunchy if you'd rather it be cruchy. This has a lot of sugar but it sure is good!

I make this recipe too except with 1/2 c canola oil instead of the applesauce. I also add pecans. It a nice quick bread and it especially nice for brunches or unexpected company.
