TNT Amish Cinnamon Bread/Coffee Cake

I didn't know where to post - although it says bread it is more like a coffee cake . It is very light, freezes well , Works great for muffins to.
It does however rise a lot so be care full how much you put into your pans.
Amish Cinnamon Bread
Makes 2 loaves

Batter:
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 cups butter milk
4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda

Cinnamon sugar mixture:
2/3 cups sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon

Grease two 9x5 loaf pans. Set aside until needed.
Cream together butter, 2 cups sugar, and eggs. Add milk, flour, and baking soda. Mix well.
Put 1/4 of batter in each greased loaf pan.
Mix in separate bow the 2/3 cup sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle 3/4 of the cinnamon mixture on top of the batter in each pan. Add remaining batter to pans; sprinkle the remaining cinnamon topping. Swirl with a knife. Bake at 350 degrees in a preheated oven for 45-50 minutes or until toothpick tester comes clean.

Cool in pan for 20 minutes before removing from pan.

This sounds really good.

Have you ever made it without the cinnamon and used fruit instead? I'm wondering if it would still be good. I was thinking of maybe bananas or peaches.

No I haven't, It is very moist so I don't know what the fruit will make it.
Next batch I'll have to leave the cinnamon out on one and put in some fruit.

I like making these in the mini loaf pans. Then freeze and take out as needed

Thanks. It sounds like maybe a dried fruit would work since it's already very moist.

I love my mini loaf pans .. they make just the right amount without waster.

Thanks for the info and the recipe !
