Ain't B's Cinnamon Bread

I just love this bread! It’s very moist, extremely easy to make, great for gift giving, makes great french toast, but best of all it tastes great!


2 cups all-purpose flour (unbleached)
1 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
2 teaspoons white vanilla extract
1/4 cup pecans (optional)
3 tablespoons white sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons margarine or butter
1/4 cup pecans (optional)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease one 9x5 inch loaf pan. In large mixing bowl add the first 10 ingredients, beat 3 minutes. Pour into prepared loaf pan. Smooth top. Combine 3 tablespoons white sugar, ½ teaspoon cinnamon and butter, mixing until crumbly. Sprinkle topping over smoothed batter. Using knife, cut in a light swirling motion to give a marbled effect. (sprinkle top with ¼ cup crushed nuts) Bake for about 50 minutes. Test with toothpick. When inserted it should come out clean. Remove bread from pan to rack to cool.
