Amish Cinnamon Bread

It’s time for The Shameful Narcissist’s yearly recipe.  I think I missed last year, but I know I did Chocolate Chip Cookies, so I should probably call it bi-yearly.

Fluttershy ShrugUnlike the author, I’m not going to give you my life story; I’m just going to tell you the recipe and my experiences with it.  I have no clue why people feel like we need this especially before the instructions.  Tell me about your grand uncle’s roomate’s dying wish while I have bread in my mouth not before.

Note:  I have just heard from my husband that I am a gigantic hypocrite as I did this with my cookie recipe.  I told him to shut up and we’re both laughing our asses off because he’s not wrong.


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups buttermilk or 2 cups milk plus 2 T vinegar or lemon juice
  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 T baking soda

Cinnamon/sugar mix:

  • 2/3 cups sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to:

  • 350 degrees F/175 degrees C

I don’t think it matters if you use salted or unsalted butter.  I used salted and it still tasted good to me.  Also I used an electric mixer because those are god’s gift to the kitchen.  Mix the butter, sugar, and eggs.  Then add the milk and baking soda.  After that put in the flour one cup at a time.  Four cups is a lot and you’re going to have a ton of batter.  Mix the cinnamon and sugar in a separate bowl.

So you’re supposed to grease the loaf pans.  I forgot to do that.  I also put way too much in one pan so it wound up overflowing the top.

Whatever I tried meme

Try to avoid this as well.  You should fill up the loaf pans half way (so a quarter of the batter) then sprinkle a quarter of the cinnamon-sugar mixture into each.  Fill them up all the way and use up the remaining cinnamon mixture stirring it into the top of the batter.  I’m using bold because TSN completely forgot to do that so I had unbaked cinnamon and sugar surfing the top of my loaves.

Homer Simpson saying

Bake at 350 degrees (F) or 175 degrees (C) for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick tester comes out clean.  I used a knife.

That’s a sword, you dumb ass

Cool in the pan for 20 minutes.  If you didn’t grease the pans like yours truly, use a butter knife to go around the bread.  It should fall right out unless you overloaded one and it’s busting over the top.

Exhibit A

Throw off any extra cinnamon-sugar if you made the same mistake I did.  This bread lasts quite a while if you wrap it in Saran Wrap.  I brought one loaf to a Christmas party and gave some to my dad and brother.  It tastes like coffee cake, but you sure as hell can butter it, and I’m certain you can eat it with wine.

Let me know if you give this recipe a try how it turns out.  I’ll be making it again since it was so simple.

Merry Christmas if you celebrate and Happy Holidays all around!

President Cid-Face wishes you a Merry New Year.

      • Haha Yeah, Bailey wasn’t having it with her Christmas outfit this year, either. I got her a red and white Christmas shirt with little golden reindeer on it and she NOPE’d right on out of it. lol I guess she just likes her Halloween Cheeseburger costume because she can lean her head back on the burger bun part to use it like a pillow. She’ll hang out in that thing all day if I let her. 😛
