How's that for some mouth watering deliciousness???
That, my friends, is an amazing recipe I found on Redfly Creations for an alternative to the classic Amish cinnamon bread. You should definitely check out her blog because it's chock full of good stuff! Everything from this Amish Cinnamon Bread to pasta sauce to handy pre-made baking mixes and more!
I altered her recipe by using whole wheat flour and less sugar but it was still really yummy!! Definitely a semi-healthy little "sweet treat" at night after dinner. Or...ya know...anytime.
Ingredients (Makes two loaves):
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 1/2 cups raw unbleached sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups buttermilk or 2 cups milk plus 2 Tablespoons vinegar or lemon juice
- 4 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
Also, you'll need:
- 2/3 cup raw sugar
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
This will be for the middle layer/topping.
Preheat your oven to 350º.
Mix your wet ingredients with the sugar till you get a nice creamy mixture.
Now add your flour and baking soda.
Mix well. It will be more of a batter than a dough.
Distribute about 1/2-3/4 of the batter between the two pans. It may sound odd but you want to add the other 1/2-1/4 of the batter on top in a minute.
Stir together your cinnamon and sugar mixture.
Sprinkle about 1/2 of the mixture between the two pans.
Now spread the rest of the batter on top! Make sense now?
Now pour the rest of the cinnamon-sugar mixture on top of the batter in each pan.
Take a butter knife and stick it into the batter about an inch or so and swirl the batter around. This will help the top have more texture and the inside to be marbled.
Bake for 45-55 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool, and enjoy!!
It was so hard to wait!
Baked to perfection!
Slices of heaven.
Drool worthy indeed.
Eat it warm, cold, warm with butter, cold with butter, early morning, late night, any time, any way this is so good!
We had a friend visiting for the weekend when I made this and it went so fast! Boy am I glad I tossed the other loaf in the freezer before it was gone too!
Next I want to try The Pioneer Woman's method!
What's your favorite way to make cinnamon bread?
