I love coffee cake but I never seem to have time in the morning to bake. I found this recipe for Cinnamon Swirl Bread and it so good especially with the glaze on top. It is delicious.
It was so easy to make. I already had everything on hand. I didn’t add the pecans because my husband doesn’t like pecans I think they would have been delicious in it.
This bread is great with coffee in the morning. You have to make it so you can try it for yourself.
Cinnamon Swirl Bread
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans, toasted (I didn’t use)
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 cup sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk (I used buttermilk for extra moistness. YUM!)
1/3 cup cooking oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease/flour/spray the bottom and sides of a 9″x5″x3″ loaf pan.Combine 1/3 cup of sugar, pecans (if using), and cinnamon. Set aside.
Combine 1 cup of sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl or mixer bowl. In a separate bowl, beat egg. Then, stir in milk (or buttermilk) and oil (I put these two together in a measuring cup). Make a well in the flour mixture (I didn’t do this), and add the egg mixture. Stir just until mixed. Do not overmix.
Pour half of the batter into loaf pan. Sprinkle with half of the cinnamon mixture. Repeat. With a wide rubber scraper or spatula, swirl mixtures together with a down and up circular motion (I couldn’t do that for some reason).
Bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until done. Cool in pan for about 10 minutes. Then, cool completely on a wire rack.
1 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
