Amish Cinnamon Bread

Because Amish Cinnamon Bread is incredibly sweet, it’s best served for breakfast or dessert. It’s particularly ideal for November since it’s a warm, rustic bread that may be baked to wow family when they visit for Thanksgiving. The color and texture of the bread are not only appealing to the eye, but they are also excellent!


½ cup butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 cup buttermilk (OR 1 cup milk + 1 Tbspn vinegar/lemon juice)
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
Cinnamon/Sugar Mixture:
⅓ cups sugar (try half white and half brown sugar!)
1 tsp cinnamon


Cream butter, sugar, and eggs. Then add the milk, flour, and baking soda.
Prepare a loaf pan by greasing it. Then, pour a third of the batter in the pan, and a third of the cinnamon sugar mixture on top of that. Repeat two more times. You should end up with the last layer being the sugar mixture on top, which will give the bread a nice crunchy top (especially if you used a little brown sugar!)
Bake it on the middle rack at 350 degrees, for 40-45 minutes. Cool for 20 minutes.
