Easy Cinnamon Swirl Loaf A moist, soft and wonderful tasting loaf cake, perfect with a morning coffee!
Servings: 1 loaf
Ingredients
  • 2 cups All Purpose / Plain flour
  • 1 1/2 cups regular sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon powder
The Glaze:
  • 1/4 cup powdered / icing sugar
  • 2 tsp milk
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 °F (180 °C). Grease a 9-in loaf pan.
  2. Combine the flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder, salt, buttermilk, egg, vanilla and oil; stir just until moistened.
  3. In a small bowl, combine cinnamon and remaining sugar.
  4. Pour half of the batter into bread pan; sprinkle with half of the cinnamon-sugar. Spread with remaining batter and sprinkle with remaining cinnamon-sugar.
  5. Using a skewer or knife, cut through the batter to swirl a few times.
  6. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Allow to cool for 10 minutes in the pan before removing to wire rack. Cool completely.
  7. For the glaze, combine icing / powdered sugar and enough milk to reach desired consistency; drizzle over loaf.
  8. Allow to cool. Store in an airtight container. You can also freeze half or all of it, wrap in parchment paper, then place in a zippy bag. Defrost as normal and enjoy! It will still be moist.
