When I got married, I was lucky to receive a homemade cookbook filled with recipes from all of the lovely ladies that came to my bridal shower.  In that cookbook, I have found some of the best recipes ever!  Since this is Easter weekend, and I’m in charge of Easter Brunch at my house right after church, I decided to make this yummy cinnamon bread that the recipe was given to me from my mother in law, Cindy (hence the name!)  I hope you enjoy!

Ingredients for the topping:

-1/2 cup sugar

-1 tbsp cinnamon

Combine and set aside.

Next, you will combine the other dry ingredients which are:

-2 cups of flour

-1/2 tsp salt

-1 tsp baking soda

In another larger bowl, mix together:

-1 egg

-1 cup sugar

-1 tsp. vanilla extract

-1/4 cup canola oil

Next you will need 1 cup of buttermilk (I used low fat buttermilk to try and help make this a LITTLE healthier ;).  You are going to alternate adding and combining to the egg mixture the flour mix and the buttermilk.  When it’s all combined, it’ll look like this:

Now you are ready to pour half of the batter into a 9 X 5 loaf pan and then top with the cinnamon sugar topping.


Repeat process until you end up with a nice topping of cinnamon sugar on the very top.  Then, take a knife and swirl it around in the batter.  Bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for 1 hour.
