Cinnamon Swirl Bread

I had buttermilk so I made bread.  Its AMAZING!  So much cinnamon and sugar its addicting.  The end.....

All that dark brown is SUGAR!
Cinnamon Swirl Bread - Adapted from Sweet As Sugar Cookies
Yield: 1 loaf
4 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter, room temperature
1 Cup Sugar
2 Eggs
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
2 Cups Flour
1 Cup Buttermilk

Filling and Topping:
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1 1/2 Tablespoons Cinnamon

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, salt, and vanilla. 
  3. Sift together the flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Add alternately to the creamed mixture along with the buttermilk, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. 
  4. Combine the brown sugar and cinnamon together until well mixed. Spoon 1/3 of the batter into a greased 9x5 loaf pan or three mini loaf pans. Sprinkle with 1/3 of the cinnamon mixture. Repeat the layers twice more, ending with cinnamon on top. 
  5. Bake for 1 hour or until it tests done when a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let rest in the pan 20 minutes before removing from the pan to cool completely.  Make sure it is completely cool before slicing.
  6. Enjoy!!
