This rich quick bread is a favorite with my family. I often give my husband a few slices to take with him on his commute to work, along with a tall travel mug of coffee.

Really good! Doubled the recipe to make two loaves, also added 2 tsp of vanilla to the batter and reduced the sugar by 1/3 of a cup per loaf. After reading other reviews, made sure to grease the bottom of the pans really well and did not have any problems with sticking. Will definately make again!
What a lovely bread. I made this today exactly (almost) as stated....I didn't have buttermilk so I mixed a tblsp. of vinegar into the milk and it turned out great. The cooking time was a bit longer (probably my oven) but the result was a very moist and delicious loaf. I know I will be making this again as it was very easy to put together and made my home smell heavenly !
Killer cinnamon bread!! I did as another reviewer recommended, doubled the recipe and made it in a bundt pan. Then I brought it to work while it was still warm and everyone loved it! Mahalo for sharing!
