This recipe makes one loaf of Cinnamon Swirl Bread. To me, this quick bread is the perfect little treat to have with coffee or tea in the morning or as an afternoon treat. Something sweet, but not overly sweet. Let’s make a loaf together.
Cinnamon Swirl Bread

- 1 1/3 cups sugar divided
- 1 egg room temperature
- 2 cups flour
- 1 Teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 Teaspoon baking soda
