Sweet Cinnamon Quick Bread

This is an old recipe that I have in my file.  If you need a quick gift to bring, maybe you could try this delicious bread.  It's really perfect for any season.  Those of you that love cinnamon, should really like this.  I hope you try it!

Makes 4 small loaves
2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1 cup buttermilk **
1/3 cup oil
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs


2 Tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons butter or margarine, softened

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease & flour bottom only of 9 x 5- inch loaf pan.  Lightly spoon flour into cup; level off.  In large bowl , combine all bread ingredients & beat for 3 minutes on medium speed of mixer.  Pour batter into prepared pan. 

In small bowl, combine all streusel ingredients until crumbly; sprinkle over batter & swirl lightly to marble.   Bake for 45-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  Remove from pan immediately.  Cool completely before slicing.  Wrap & refrigerate leftover bread.

Tips: ** To substitute for buttermilk, use 1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice plus milk to measure 1 cup.  I also always have on hand powdered buttermilk & you use 4 T. of it with 1 Cup of water.

NOTE:  I made 4 small loaves to give as gifts (this way, I can keep one, too!!).  I baked the small loaves for 30 minutes, but still did the toothpick test.
