Cinnamon Swirl Bread Recipe

How to make Cinnamon Swirl Bread

My friend introduced me to this Cinnamon Swirl bread recipe a few years ago and I am glad she did. I am not much of a baker, but my kids were excited about this bread. It didn’t last long in our house the first time I made it and I get requests for it all the time. Thanks Chenea for introducing me to the world of baking. ;)

Don’t spend a ridiculous amount of money on bread mixes, when you can make your own for half the price! Plus the homemade versions always taste better too. ;)

Get the kids involved with this recipe, because they LOVE to use the butter knife to swirl the bread before you bake it.

I will warn you… this bread is addicting. It is hard to eat just one. This bread is easy to make so you can make it on a weekday for breakfast, but it is “fancy enough” to serve it on a special occasion.

Enjoy this Cinnamon Swirl Bread Recipe this week!

Cinnamon Swirl Bread

Prep time: 

Total time: 

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk (you can use buttermilk, but isn't necessary)
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • ½ cup sugar (we will save ½ cup sugar for the cinnamon mixture)
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  1. Combine the flour, 1 cup sugar, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.
  2. In another bowl, combine buttermilk, egg and oil.
  3. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
  4. In a small bowl, combine cinnamon and ½ cup sugar.
  5. Grease the bottom a 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan.
  6. Pour half of the batter into pan; sprinkle with half of the cinnamon-sugar.
  7. Spread with remaining batter and sprinkle with remaining cinnamon-sugar.
  8. Use a knife to swirl the cinnamon. I did it alot to mine. See the picture below.
  9. Bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
  10. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.

On a side note: you could add icing to the top of this bread once it is cooked, but I don’t think it needs it. The kids gobbled it up without it. :)

I would think this could be very freezer friendly. You could freeze it whole or even freeze it after you have sliced it. Enjoy!
