Cinnamon Swirl Loaf

Seems to be that the easy recipes have been the trend on my blog lately.  Not that I don’t want to try things out, but there have been recipes that ask for things that I have to go out of my way to get, so I was just trying recipes, and changing it up with things that I can just make an adjustment with a substitute.

Cinnamon Swirl Loaf

Ingredients:
1/3 cup sugar
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 cups cake flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil

Preheat oven to 350ºF.  Lightly grease a 9″x5″ loaf pan.

In a small bowl, mix together 1/3 cup sugar and 2 teaspoon cinnamon.  Set aside.

In a medium bowl, sift together cake flour, baking powder, salt and 1 cup sugar.

In a separate bowl, combine egg, milk and oil.  Stir into the flour mixture until just combined.  DO NOT OVERMIX!!!!

Pour half the batter into the prepared pan.  Sprinkle half the cinnamon mixture on top of the batter.  Pour the rest of the batter on top of the cinnamon mixture and top with the rest of the cinnamon mixture.

Swirl the batter with a knife for a marble effect.

Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until cake tester comes out clean.  Cool in pan for 10 minutes, before removing from pan.  For best tasting, cut into slices the next day.
