Cinnamon Swirl Bread

by Christa on January 29, 2010

Post image for Cinnamon Swirl Bread
In this household we LOVE cinnamon. We buy the bulk size of ground cinnamon at Costco… that’s how much we love it! So I decided to make something a little different. Its a Cinnamon Swirl Bread. Its very moist, dense and NOT muffin like. Sometimes its nice to get a little different texture, and this was just it!
I made a bunch of mini loaves, and they lasted for over a week. As time went by they got more and more moist… don’t you just love when that happens? It’s like being rewarded for waiting and not eating the whole loaf the first day! πŸ™‚

I discovered your blog thanks to your comment on mine–wow! The recipes look so amazingly good, starting with this one. Cinnamon nut bread was one of my favorite things when I lived in the US, your recipe looks like a must-try to put on my list πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing!

Thanks Mini for visiting

I've also enjoyed browsing your wonderful blog as well. We have something in common…I run, and I love pilates! I guess if we have a passion for baking….we must also exercise!

This bread looks fantastic. I definitely love baked goods that get moist over time as opposed to drying out. We happen to be cinnamon lovers in this house too. I actually made a cinnamon streusel coffee cake just last night. I'm going to add this bread to my to-make list!

Oh that looks awesome. I bet it would make badass french toast.

is this a cake like quick bread or more bread like glutenous loaf?


Leslie January 30, 2010 at 4:56 pm

I get bulk cinnamon as well and I go through it in like two weeks.


grace January 31, 2010 at 1:39 pm

all right, so this is the second batch of this bread that i've seen in the past two days, so i suppose i should take that as a sign that i need to make it. clearly, as a fellow cinnamon-lover, i'd enjoy it. beautifully done!

I think anything with cinnamon is good. The bonus is the way it makes the house smell so good!

Are there more wonderful words than "cinnamon swirl bread"? Maybe only "mini cinnamon swirl bread". πŸ™‚ Nice job!
