Cinnamon Swirl Bread

 I found this recipe at
It turned out really well as you can see by my picture. :)

Cinnamon Swirl Bread


  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan. In a small bowl, mix together 1/3 cup sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon; set aside.
  2. In large bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt and remaining 1 cup sugar. Combine egg, milk, and oil; add to flour mixture. Stir until just moistened.
  3. Pour half of the batter into pan. Sprinkle with half the reserved cinnamon/sugar mixture. Repeat with remaining batter and cinnamon/sugar mixture. Draw a knife through batter to marble.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 45 to 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Wrap in foil and let sit overnight before slicing.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     This is a delicious sweet type bread/cake that came out really nice. I did have to cook it longer than the time mentioned..about 10 minutes longer for a knife drawn from the center to come out clean (to make sure it was cooked well enough in the middle). This would be a great treat to have with tea, or a late morning snack when having a friend over :) Easy to make, and not fussy at all! :)
