I found the recipe YEARS ago and have made it countless times since.
It is a household favorite…mostly because it is so easy to whip up with simple ingredients.
The BOY is a huge fan of the cinnamon sugar layer, and guests seem impressed when I serve this for breakfast after a slumber party.
I think this is the part where I tempt you with mouth watering pictures of this delicious bread!
Can you imagine if I could create a scratch and sniff computer screen?!
You’d be drooling…trust me!
Luckily, this recipe makes 2 loaves, so you can share one delightful loaf and keep one for yourself!
As I mentioned yesterday, I am only back home for ~24 hours because I am off to the Bear’s game tonight, then sleeping over at my brothers, then back for one last night with the dogs. It’s going to be a busy week at work too, so the posts might be a bit slim this week! Luckily, I’m leaving you with something delicious to keep you busy in the kitchen.
Cinnamon Bread Delight
Makes 2 loaves of bread
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1 (5.1 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup applesauce
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons cinnamon sugar mix (I use WAY more)
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease two 5×9 inch loaf pans.
2. In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, pudding mix, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. In a separate bowl, mix the milk, oil, applesauce, eggs, and vanilla. Stir the milk mixture into the flour mixture until smooth. Do not over stir. Spread half the batter across the bottom of both pans. Then sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Then spread the rest of the batter over the cinnamon sugar and swirl with a knife. (You can add more cinnamon sugar over the top of the bread if desired!)
3. Bake 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a loaf comes out clean.
Note: Freezes well
