~Quick Bread: Cinnamon Swirl Bread

Fall is officially here in upstate New York { if you ask me} . The leaves are changing color and the days are getting colder & shorter. As much as I will miss the sunny summer, I am so ready for the fall time. Something about a cold fall day screams time crank up the oven and get the house warm with some fresh baked goodies.

Today, I baked this lovely quick bread, you know the kind that doesn’t involve using yeast. Anything that is easier is better in my book, especially if it still tastes amazing. This bread is sweet and fluffy, much of the texture of a cake. Mmm it’s the perfect fall time treat.
Cinnamon Swirl Quick Bread

Ingredients

    • 2 cups flour
    • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
    • 1/2 cup brown sugar
    • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
    • 1 tsp baking soda
    • 1/2 cup vegetable or canola oil
    • 1 cup sour cream
    • 3 eggs, beaten
    • 2 tsp vanilla extract
For the Cinnamon Swirl:
    • 2/3 cup sugar
    • 1 tbsp cinnamon
For the Crumble Topping:
    • 1/2 cup flour
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 1/4 cup butter, softened
    • 1 tsp cinnamon
For the Simple Glaze:

  • 1 1/2 tbsp water

1. In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients:  flour, sugars, baking powder and baking soda with a whisk until evenly distributed.

2. Add oil, mix until small lumps begin to form.  Then add the sour cream, beaten eggs, and vanilla. Mix just until batter begins to form, do not over mix. (Batter will appear lumpy, and that is okay!)

3. Now for the cinnamon swirl, mix together the sugar and cinnamon.

4. Add 1/3 of the batter to the bread pan, then layer 1/2 of the cinnamon swirl on top of it. Take another 1/3 of the batter and do the same thing.

5. Add the rest of the remaining batter on top of that. Now time to prepare the cinnamon crumble. Mix together the flour, sugar and cinnamon. Use a pastry blender to cut in the soften butter until a nice crumbly texture appears.

If you don’t have one, that’s okay. Mix together then shift it using a fork.

6. Add the crumble on top of the batter and bake at 350 degrees for about 65 minutes. Or until toothpick inserted into bread comes out clean.

7. Once it’s all done baking allow it to cool for a few minutes. In the mean time mix up the glaze. Pour it into a zip-lock baggy and cut a small section off the corner of it to squeeze onto the warm bread {just before serving}.
