Cinnamon Swirl Bread

Cinnamon Swirl Quick Bread


1 1/3 cups sugar
2 tablespoons PLUS 2 teaspoons cinnamon

8 cups flour
4 cups sugar
4 cups milk
1 1/3 cup oil
¼ cup baking powder
4 eggs, beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons salt


Preheat oven to 325. Grease 4 loaf pans. In a small bowl, mix together swirl ingredients. Set aside. In a very large bowl, combine baking powder, flour, sugar and salt. In a medium sized bowl, combine eggs, milk, vanilla and oil. Add to flour mixture. Stir until moist and virtually lump-free. Pour into pan, filling about 1/3 of the way. Sprinkle with swirl mixture. Add more batter, top with more swirl mixture. Using the end of a knife, gently swirl the top of the loaf. Repeat for remaining 3 pans. Bake 45- 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool in pan 10-15 minutes then remove to wire racks. Cool completely before slicing.


  1. Looks delicious! Think I will make up a half batch (otherwise I’d eat way too much, LOL!)

  4. LuLu: Just a standard loaf pan: 4-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ x 3″

  5. Hi! This looks so delicious! Do you know if I could possibly freeze the loaves? I like to put breads in the freezer for use later. Thanks for the recipe!

  6. I’ve never frozen it before so I don’t know how it would turn out once defrosted. Worth a try though!
