Cinnamon Swirl
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 3-4 teaspoons margarine or butter (I don't recommend oil)
  • 2 cups flour (I used 1 1/3 cup all-purpose, 2/3 cup whole wheat)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk or sour milk (for sour milk, use 1 tablespoon vinegar, with enough milk to equal 1 cup)
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  1. Mix together 1/4 cup sugar, 2 tsp cinnamon, and margarine. You can melt the margarine if you'd like to make mixing easier; otherwise use a fork or pastry cutter to mash it up. Set aside.
  2. Mix together remaining ingredients, stirring until just combined. Scrape about half the batter into a greased 9x5 inch loaf pan. Top with half of the topping, but try not to let it touch the edge of the pan. Add remaining batter, then top with remaining topping.
  3. Bake at 350F for about 50 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
