I had a previous recipe which included a TON of butter. I was intrigued by this recipe since I always use Canola oil in my baked goods (heart healthy). I also subbed 1c. of whole wheat flour in place of 1 of the cups of flour to make it more healthy. With the exception of those substitutions & reducing the cinnamon/sugar mixture to 1/2c. sugar, I made the recipe as instructed. It was plenty sweet and satisfied my craving for warm cinnamon quick bread. I also baked the entire recipe in a greased Bundt pan which always works out better for me. Tip: if you don't have buttermilk, measure 1T. of vinegar, pour into 1 c. measure and fill remaining amount with milk. (1T for each cup). Let sit for a few minutes, add in place of buttermilk.
Really good warm out of the oven! Couple of changes that I made were increasing the salt to 1-1/2 teaspoons and I also added 1 teaspoon of cinnamon to the batter itself, in addition to the cinnamon that was swirled throughout. I sprayed my loaf pans with Pam and also lined the bottoms with parchment for added ease in removing the loaves. While they were still hot I drizzled a glaze over the top that consisted of powdered sugar and French Vanilla Coffee-Mate creamer. Loved the ease of just mixing the batter up by hand really quick and not needing the mixer! This recipe has been added to my book of keepers!
My family loved it! Thank you for this easy, fast, delicious recipe. I didn't have buttermilk and used plain yogurt instead and turned out great.
Delicious. I made this with whole wheat flour, coconut oil, and agave nectar (1 c) for the batter. For the cinnamon sugar mixture, I cut the amounts in half. It was plenty sweet even with all those changes.
This bread was really good and really easy to put together. In my haste this morning, I forgot to put the cinnamon sugar mixture in the middle, so just dumped it all on top...still tasted great, though I am sure it would've been better if I hadn't botched that part! : } It had probably the best texture of any cinnamon bread recipe I've ever tried. I halved the recipe to make just one loaf and did have to use about 1/4 c sour cream as I didn't quite have enough buttermilk. I will absolutely make this again--and hopefully remember to get that cinnamon swirl in there!!!
Great, easy recipe. I've made it twice now (it's in the oven). both times I've used So Delicious Vanilla Cultured Coconut Milk (kind of like a vanilla buttermilk or kefir) just cause I had it. It comes out great. I do sub some whole wheat flour as others have mentioned and I do it in a bundt pan so i get 1 big coffee cake. This time i sprinkled it with oatmeal as another poster mention.
This is a very tasty, quick and easy bread.
Followed the recipe exactly - delicious and so easy!! Will definately make again.
Excellent quick bread! The combination of buttermilk and cinnamon is wonderful, it takes just a few minutes to mix, and everyone loves it. The only change I made was to omit the walnuts. Thank you for a terrific recipe that I'll be making again.
