  1. Hi Peggy,

    This sounds delicious, I love aroma and taste of cinnamon however it comes.

    Over here, in the UK, we would probably call this a cinnamon cake, as the ingredients you have listed, are the traditional mix that we would use for cakes.

    You have no idea just how tempted I am to try this recipe, however all that sugar is just a bit too much for me!

    The only way that hubbie and I have any chance of defeating the middle aged flab, is not to have the sweet stuff in the house at all, so I never buy cake, sweets or biscuits when I am grocery shopping, so that we can't be tempted!!

    Thanks for sharing the recipe though and I hope that you enjoy eating the bread, I'm not drooling and jealous .... much!!


    1. I know what you mean about being tempted, Yvonne! I don't bake too often. I only made one loaf so that's one cup of sugar divided among quite a few slices, but..sugar is the root of a lot of evil:) It smelled heavenly baking though!

  2. I love cinnamon, too, and this recipe looks very good. Thanks.

  3. I love cinnamon sugar. This would be good toasted for breakfast or a snack. I love that the recipe makes two loaves, one for now and one to freeze for later.
