Cinnamon Swirl Bread


Quick bread! Easy and QUICK to make with just a few ingredients. It would be great for breakfast with a hot cup of coffee, or easily could be a dessert as well.

Perfect to make for Christmas morning or to simply enjoy anytime of the year. Sticky, sweet, and delicious!


For the swirl:
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans, toasted
2 tsp. ground cinnamon

For the bread:
1 cup granulated sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 large egg
1 cup milk
1/3 cup cooking oil


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease/flour/spray the bottom and sides of a 9″ x 5″ x 3″ loaf pan.

To make the swirl, combine 1/3 cup of sugar, pecans, and cinnamon. Set aside.

Combine 1 cup of sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, beat egg. Then, stir in milk and oil. Make a well in the flour mixture and add the egg mixture. Stir just until mixed. Do not over-mix.

Pour half of the batter into loaf pan. Sprinkle with half of the cinnamon mixture. Repeat. With a wide rubber scraper or spatula, swirl mixtures together with a down and up circular motion.

Bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until done. Cool in pan for about 10 minutes. Then, cool completely on a wire rack.
