Amish Cinnamon Bread

by 247tasty

Amish cinnamon bread has been around for centuries. It’s an easy dessert and great enough for breakfast, too. Cinnamon is an awesome ingredient for anything even coffee. I like cinnamon bread paired with a freshly brewed coffee for an afternoon snack. If you want a classic with a hint this is worth everything. The dough is baked right into the dough. And the inside is lovely, moist, and cinnamony.

I made this many times for personal consumption or as a gift. It’s a great gift to give to friends, loved ones, and colleagues. This is a staple in our family. My grandmother made this, my mom, and now me. I don’t know if this an original recipe but one thing is for sure it’s amazingly delicious! I’ve shared the recipe with my friends and colleagues and they give it a 5-star rating. This is a simple recipe, easy to put together, overrated yet a crowd favorite!

2 eggs
2 cups of buttermilk or 2 cups milk plus 2 tablespoons of vinegar or lemon juice

How to make Amish Cinnamon Bread

Step 1: Cream the butter, sugar, and eggs.
