Try her Cinnamon Swirl Bread and you'll know what I mean. This bread is so EASY and you don't even need a mixer!
Cinnamon Swirl Bread
2 tsp cinnamon
2 cups flour
1 TB baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 350-F. Lightly grease a 9x5 in. loaf pan or spray with PAM cooking spray for baking.
In a small bowl, mix 1/3 cup sugar and 2 tsp cinnamon. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and 1 cup sugar.
In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, milk and oil. Add to the dry ingredients and mix with a spoon until just combined.
Pour 1/2 the batter into the loaf pan. Sprinkle 1/2 the cinnamon sugar mixture over the batter. Pour remaining batter over the cinnamon sugar, then sprinkle remaining cinnamon sugar on the top. Take a knife and put it into the batter, then swirl it around to marble the bread.
Bake for 45-50 min. or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let sit for about 10 min. in the pan, then remove to a wire rack to cool.
