Cinnamon Bread

This was a huge hit in our house. This is another of Grandma Donna’s recipes where I was pleasantly surprised by the result of a few simple ingredients. The crust is a bit sweet and crunchy but the inside is soft and moist and the top is very reminiscent of a cinnamon bun. This would be a great “gifting” cake. In the loaf pictured, I chose not to marble the dough.

Bread Ingredients

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/3 cup sour soy milk
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tsp vanilla

Topping Ingredients

  • 3 tsp Earth Balance
  • 3 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Yield: 1 large 9” loaf

Preheat oven to 350o.

In a stand mixer bowl, measure all ingredients in the order given and beat on medium high for 3 minutes, until smooth. Pour into a greased loaf pan. Smooth top.

For the topping: in a separate bowl, melt the Earth Balance. Mix in the sugar and cinnamon and drizzle over the cake.

Optional: Using knife, cut into the dough with a swirling motion to give a marble effect. Bake for 60 minutes or until knife comes out clean. Remove to rack to cool.
