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.
