Cinnamon Bread

"I like it because it’s very soft and moist, almost like cake. It’s really good." - Du Kim Vuong, Lawrenceville


1 cup butter, softened

2 cups sugar

2 eggs

2 cups buttermilk or 2 cups milk plus

2 Tbsp. vinegar or lemon juice

4 cups flour

2 tsp. baking soda

Cinnamon & Sugar mixture:

2/3 cup brown sugar

2 tsp. cinnamon


Cream together butter, sugar and eggs. Add milk, flour and baking soda. Take half of batter and divide into two greased 5x9-inch pans so that each pan contains ¼ of the batter.

In separate bowl, mix brown sugar and cinnamon. Divide ¾ of the cinnamon mixture between the two pans, sprinkling onto top of batter in each pan. Divide remaining batter between the two pans, and sprinkle each with half of the remaining cinnamon topping. Use knife to swirl cinnamon mixture throughout batter.

Bake at 350 degrees for 55 to 60 minutes. Cool 20 minutes. Makes two loaves.
