Recipe: Cinnamon Dessert Bread

I love it when a "bread" requires no kneading, rising or proofing. That usually means it's a cake masquerading as breakfast! Call it what you like, this delicious recipe from kat is welcome on my table anytime.

i cannot bake. i can destroy even a boxed mix. i am not a baker.

but i was desperate for a sweet treat, & couldn't convince manlyman to get in the car in search of baked goodies for me. apparently spending the entire day pampering me wore him out. selfish beast. i scoured the internet found a recipe that looked easy enough. i decided to make a few substitutions, & gave it a go! it was amazing! here is my version:

cinnamon dessert bread
1/4c butter
1 1/3c sugar, divided
1 egg
2c all-purpose flour
1tsp baking powder
1/2tsp baking soda
1/2tsp salt
1c vanilla soy creamer
2tsp apple cider vinegar
1tb cinnamon
preheat oven to 350
add vinegar to soy cream, & set aside
beat butter, 1c sugar, & egg
combine flour, soda, powder, & salt
add flour mixture, alternatively with curdled milk, to butter mixture
combine cinnamon & remaining sugar
pour half the batter into a greased loaf pan, sprinkle half the sugar mixture atop it, then the remaining batter, & finally the remaining sugar mixture
bake for 45-50 minutes, until a skewer comes out clean

(note - i use evaporated cane juice, not white sugar - i cannot vouch for the flavor using white.)

it was very rich; most likely due to using soy creamer rather than soy milk; so tasted more like a dessert than the breakfasty bread i'm sure it was meant to be. i am definitely going to make this again!

From peg people to pencil pouches to birthday crowns, there is something for everyone at kats in the belfry. Kat says, "i enjoy making toys that inspire creative play. all creations are made from natural materials: fabric, wood, felt, paper. i strive to make things that spark the imagination, feel good in their hands, & are just plain pretty."
