This Amish bread was very light; it didn't have the dense consistency of most quick breads. But it tasted delicious. A perfect treat for breakfast!
Ingredients (2 loaves)
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
2 cups buttermilk or 2 cups milk plus 2 tablespoons vinegar or lemon juice
4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
Topping ~ Cinnamon/sugar mixture:
2/3 cups sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease two loaf pans.
Mix together the topping ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar, and eggs.
Add the flour, baking soda, and milk. Mix just until combined.
Fill each prepared pan 1/2 full. Sprinkle with 1/4 of the topping.
Add the remainder of the batter to each pan, and sprinkle with the remaining topping.
Use a knife to swirl the cinnamon and sugar into the batter.
