Cinnamon Bread

Hold onto your hats friends, I’ve got another *fat pants* recipe for you, and this one is RIDICULOUS. I’m so so excited to be sharing this recipe with you today because it is so amazingly good!

A sweet cinnamon swirled cake, baked until perfectly moist and then dipped into melted butter and coated with cinnamon and sugar!! If that doesn’t make you excited for dessert, then I don’t know what will.

You have my friend Machel to blame. Last week, she employed me to create a clone to a very very similar item found at her grocery store a few weeks prior. I’m not one to back down from a challenge, so of course I gladly accepted and a few days later here she blows.

This is a pretty simple loaf to make, you just need to be prepared to get a little messy whilst dipping the whole loaf into melted butter…and then cinnamon and sugar.

Also be prepared to go to the gym right after consuming gain weight with this one, folks. But, if ever there was a recipe worth the weight gained, this would be it.

Here are a few photos I snapped in the process; printable recipe below!

Have a wonderful weekend! xo

Cinnamon Swirl Donut Bread

A sweet cakey loaf with a delicious cinnamon swirl baked until perfection and then dipped into lots of butter and coated with cinnamon and sugar!! YESSSSS.

Yield: 1 loaf

Prep Time:

Cook Time:

Total Time:

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup softened butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk {or 1/2 cup milk + 1/2 teaspoon white vinegar}
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon molasses
  • coating:
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease light colored loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In large bowl, mix oil, butter and sugar until well combined. Stir in eggs and vanilla until smooth. Gently stir in dry ingredients and buttermilk until uniform batter has formed. Scrape sides to ensure no lumps are present. Remove 1/2 cup prepared batter from bowl and place into a separate smaller bowl. To that small amount of batter, stir in cinnamon and molasses.
  3. Pour half of the prepared batter into the bottom of the loaf pan. Spoon half of the cinnamon batter in small dollops overtop the batter. Pour remaining plain batter over the top. Dot the top with remaining cinnamon batter. Using a butter knife, swirl two batters together. Bake 45-50 minutes or until toothpick comes out with a few moist crumbs.
  4. While loaf is baking, get coating ready. Pour melted butter into a large shallow dish. Stir sugar, brown sugar and cinnamon together in a separate large shallow dish.
  5. Cool 10 minutes before loosening edges and removing loaf from pan. The loaf should be very warm, but cool enough to handle with your hands.
  6. Dip each side of loaf into melted butter until fully coated. Spoon remaining melted butter over the edges that tend to be more crispy. Transfer buttery loaf to the cinnamon-sugar mixture and press into the sides and top until fully coated.
  7. Slice into pieces and serve warm or at room temperature.

  1. This is a terrific cake. It’s easy to make and light, with great texture. I threw a few chocolate chips on the top for my choc-o-holic husband, and pressed them lightly into the batter. I sprinkled the top with some cinnamon and sugar, just to coat the chips. After I dipped the sides in butter, I brushed the top with it so I didn’t have to handle the loaf quite as much.

  21. Any idea how to make this with gluten & dairy free substitutes?

    Reply
    • Try using unsweetened almond milk + vinegar in place of the buttermilk and pamela’s gluten free flour blend.

  22. This looks like a worthy experiment.

  23. I noticed this recipe called for baking powder and buttermilk. All the recipes I have used with buttermilk call for Baking SODA. Is the baking powder correct? Just curious.

  27. I’m allergic to cinnamon, so I just made this with a bunch of other spices and a little extra molasses. It. Is. So. Good. A+ recipe.

  28. I just baked your cinnamon swirl donut bread, except I made it into mini muffins. They came out amazing. I baked them for 10 – 12 minutes and removed immediately from the muffin tins otherwise they stick. That is very important. Then I just dipped just the tops of the mini muffins in butter and then in the coating. Heavenly!

  37. I am trying to copy and print, however, I can’t seem to do it. Is it, because one can print it only?

    Reply
    • I think so!! Why do you need to copy it?

      Reply
  38. You should really specify which temperature measurement you’re using (Celsius or farenhiet etc.) Because someone could not realise and use 350 degrees Celsius.

  39. It would be helpful if you had specified which temperature measurement you’re using (Celsius or farenhiet etc.) Because someone could not realise and use 350 degrees Celsius. Other than that though it’s really good !

  40. this is seriously the best sweet bread ever! You won’t be able to quit on it! I made 2 loaves and my family had it gone in no time 😉

    Reply
  41. Yes Cindy Briggs you may use Corn Syrup or even Maple Syrup..it is only 1/2 a teaspoon so it’s ok to substitute with these 2 ingredients…I just made this and used Maple Syrup..No doubt the best Cinnamon Bread ever..

  42. I am cooking mine in a glass Pyrex bread pan and it is taking longer than 50 mins. Did I do something wrong?

    Reply
  43. Can you double the recipe? I’ve made it before and everyone loves it so I have to make several loaves!
