Cinnamon Loaf

/, Sweets/Cinnamon Loaf

My partner LOVES cinnamon more than he loves me so I thought I’d make some sort of loaf that would be a good lunchbox snack.

This was originally a CWA recipe from memory that I changed and tweaked a bit.

It’s a great recipe to use up that buttermilk you have from butter making! If you don’t have buttermilk you can make it by adding 1 tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice to a cup of milk an letting if stand for 5 mins or so.

This loaf is a cross between a cake and bread. It’s not to my tastes but my partner loves it!!!

    So easy to make and was a huge hit with the family. I didn’t end up using quite as much cinnamon but was still very tasty 🙂
