Breads: Cinnamon Sugar Quick Bread

So I was on Pinterest one day and saw a cinnamon sugar bread recipe! That really got me in the mood to bake. So I did lots of research and found lots of different recipes and put some together and made the perfect quick bread! Its super easy, very moist and yummy! Lets get started:


  • 1/3 cup of white sugar and 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup brewed coffee
  • 1/3 cup Vegetable Oil 
  • 1 cup white sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan. In large bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, 3 tsp cinnamon, salt and 1 cup sugar. When combined, add egg, milk, coffee and oil to the flour mixture.
  2. Stir until well combined. Pour half the batter into the loaf pan.
  3. Mix together the 1/3 cup sugar and 2 tsp cinnamon, then sprinkle that on the half batter in the loaf pan. 
  4. Add remaining batter and cover with more cinnamon and sugar (optional).
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 45-50 min. or until a toothpick is inserted and comes out clean. 
  6. Let the bread cool in pan after baking for at least 10 min. before you continue cooling on a wire rack! (Warning: your amazing bread will fall apart as you transfer to wire rack if you do not follow this step!) 
  7. You can choose to either let cool down all the way or eat it still warm! Godere!
