I have seen this recipe posted all over the internet so I figured it must be really good. I'm not even sure who to give credit for this recipe because it is on so many blogs....maybe the Amish! This bread is delicious and easy! Now I know why it was re-posted so much. It's a great bread to make in a pinch because you most likely have all the ingredients on hand.
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups granulated white sugar
2 cups buttermilk or 2 cups milk plus 2 TBS lemon juice
4 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
2/3 cups granulated white sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease two 9x5 loaf pans.
Cream together butter, sugar and eggs. Add milk, flour and baking soda. Put 1/2 of the batter (or a little less) into two greased loaf pans (1/4 of the batter in each pan). Mix in a separate bowl the sugar and cinnamon mixture. Sprinkle 3/4 of cinnamon mixture on top of the 1/2 batter in each pan. Add remaining batter to pans; sprinkle with the last of cinnamon topping. Swirl with a knife. Bake 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick tester comes clean.
Cool in pans for 20 minutes before removing from the pan.
Makes 2 loaves
