Cinnamon bread is one of my favorite breads since I'm a lover of the smell and taste of cinnamon. I have made it both with or without buttermilk, but prefer the buttermilk variety better. I cut this recipe in half for only one loaf.


1 cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 cups buttermilk
    OR 2 cups milk plus 2 tablespoons vinegar 
                                           or lemon juice    
4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda

2/3 cups sugar 
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 TBSP cinnamon

Cream together butter, 2 cups of sugar, and eggs. Add milk, flour, and baking soda. Put 1/2 of batter (or a little less) into greased loaf pans (1/4 in each pan). Mix in separate bowl the 2/3 c sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, and cinnamon. Sprinkle 3/4 of cinnamon mixture on top of the 1/2 batter in each pan. Add remaining batter to pans; sprinkle with last of cinnamon topping. Swirl with a knife. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 min. or until toothpick tester come clean.
Cool in pan for 20 minutes before removing from pan.
