Amish Cinnamon Bread (adapted from Recipes, DIY & Cool Stuffs on Facebook)
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups buttermilk (make your own – 2 tablespoons vinegar or lemon juice, add milk to make 2 cups)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 4 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
Grease two loaf pans (or line with parchment paper). Preheat oven to 350-degrees F.
Cream together butter, 2 cups sugar and eggs. Add buttermilk and vanilla, stir. Add flour and baking soda, mix well. In a separate bowl mix remaining sugar and cinnamon.
Fill each loaf pan half-way (1/4 of the batter in each pan), then sprinkle 1/2 to 3/4 of the cinnamon-sugar mixture over the top. Add remaining batter evenly to each pan, then sprinkle remaining cinnamon-sugar mixture; swirl top with a knife or spatula. Bake for 45-50 minutes, until tester comes out clean. Cool in pan for about 20-30 minutes before removing.
