  • Vegetable oil – something neutral tasting or you can use melted coconut oil or even melted butter.
  • Buttermilk or whole milk soured using lemon juice or vinegar
  • Large eggs
  • Sugar – granulated or caster sugar
  • All purpose flour (plain flour)
  • Vanilla powder or extract
  • Baking powder and baking soda (make sure these are fresh!)
  • Cinnamon and brown sugar or coconut sugar for the cinnamon swirl and topping

Stir in the sugar then sift the flour into the bowl followed by the baking powder, soda, salt and vanilla powder (if using vanilla extract then add it in with the liquids). Gently stir to combine until there are no dry pockets of flour.

Stirring batter for cinnamon bread in a bowl

Pour half the batter into a loaf tin lined with parchment paper. Top with a layer of vanilla sugar and then add the remaining batter.

Sprinkle the rest of the cinnamon sugar over the top and use a chopstick or similar to gently swirl the batter so that the cinnamon is marbled through the loaf.

RECIPE TIPS

  • This cinnamon bread will stay moist a delicious for a few days in an airtight container. You can also freeze it, whole or in slices and thaw in the fridge before serving.
  • Freestyle by adding nuts and fruit such as pecans, walnuts, raisins etc.
  • Don’t go overboard when swirling the sugar into the batter otherwise you will just have a uniformly colored bread instead of one marbled with cinnamon.
  • Fancy a treat? Heat your cinnamon bread slice in the microwave for a few seconds before spreading with butter or spiced apple butter. YUM!
