Easy Cinnamon Bread Recipe

This bread is a cross between a typical baking powder-leavened quick bread, and a yeast bread. The result: a cinnamon coffeecake-tasting loaf that's wonderful served plain, and is incredible toasted.

Choose your measure:


  1. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, yeast, cinnamon, salt, and baking powder.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, butter, and egg.
  3. Combine the wet and dry ingredients, beating until smooth.
  4. Stir in the cinnamon chips or bits. Let the batter rest at room temperature for 1 hour, covered. Towards the end of the rest, preheat the oven to 350°F.
  5. Spoon the batter into a greased 8 1/2" x 4 1/2" loaf pan. Sprinkle the top with cinnamon-sugar.
  6. Bake the bread for 35 to 40 minutes, until it tests done; a cake tester inserted into the center will come out clean.
  7. Remove the bread from the oven, let it rest in the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer it from the pan to a rack to cool completely.
  8. Note: Don't slice the bread while it's hot! It'll slice much better when it's completely cool.
