Cinnamon Sugar Swirl Quick Bread

Cinnamon Sugar Swirl Quick Bread from 101 Cooking For Two
A scrumptious quick bread. Simple enough for a family breakfast but eloquent enough for gifting.


Adapted from a Taste of Home, this recipe uses only things I always have on hand. I love no special shopping. The swirl gives it a special touch.

Rating
I want to give it a 5 but just can't. It is actually a little too sweet. I will be cut the sugar down a little all around.

Notes: As I said i my rating. A little too sweet for me normally. I took smaller slices (repeatedly...). I will cut the sugar in the batter to 3/4 cup and skip the sugar/cinnamon on top and just go with the glaze. But that is just me.



Preheat oven to 350 not convection.
Prep a loaf pan with a little butter.
In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 cups AP flour, 1 cup sugar, 1 T baking powder, 1/2 t salt and  1 t cinnamon. Mix well.
In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup sugar and 2 t cinnamon. Mix well.
In a third bowl, combine 1 cup milk, 1/4 cup oil and 1 egg. Whip together.
Mix wet into dry. The egg/milk mix into the flour/sugar mix. Mix to combine completely but do not over mix.
Put half the batter into the prepped pan. Level that layer. Spread about 2/3 of the cinnamon sugar mix over that layer then cover with the other half of the batter.
Time to swirl. With the handle of a knife or something about 1/4 inch thick, start at one corner and cut Z like across the pan 5-6 times and then back long way 3-4 times. Be sure to get close to the edge. Cover the top with the remaining sugar/cinnamon mix.
Bake until a toothpick near the center comes out clean. About 45 minutes. Let loaf cool in the pan for 10 minutes then move to cooling rake.
Combine 1/4 cup powdered sugar with 2 t milk to make the glaze.
Drizzle the glaze over loaf.

My recommendation if you wanted to try to reduce fat in this recipe, would be to replace your oil with applesauce. If you want to give another substitute a try, plain greek yogurt works VERY well, but I think the vanilla greek yogurt might add a good flavor!

You know, I thought about it. It would work but with all the sugar... what the heck...

I have a banana bread coming up that I cut the sugar (a third of this recipe) and not much oil for the healthier reader. It is very nice and about half the calories of this recipe.
