Amish Cinnamon Bread

This basic recipe is the yummy one that most people are passed when they get their bag of gooey starter dough.  No one believes that this gross bag is going to make this yummy bread but I promise that it really does.  If you coat the pan with cinnamon and sugar and put lots on top.  Great for breakfast. snack or anytime!!  I hope that you try it soon too!!

I woke up early this morning with a horrible tooth ache so I decided to start baking at 6 am.  The wonderful thing about this is that you get the yummy bread in the oven early and everyone gets hot bread right out of the oven for breakfast on a weekday (which is really unheard of in this house since I like my sleep).  I got out all the ingredients with my eyes barely open and made sure that I had enough of everything to make the bread.

I mixed up all the ingredients per the recipe and put them in my neat cinnamon and sugar coated loaf pan.  In one loaf pan, I filled it halfway up and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar mixture before putting the rest of the batter in the pan so that it will have a nice cinnamon center.  It isn't called for in this recipe but that is how I always made Amish Friendship Bread with my mom so I figured that I would try it on one of the two loaves.

My son decided that he had to help so I gave him sugar shaking duties.  He is very proud of the cinnamon and sugar shaker and told me that I had to take a picture :)

See how great he shook.  It was a nice because even if he made a mess, the pan was coated too!!!  Plus at 6 am, any help to get them in the oven was appreciated.

This is the yummy finished loaf.  We got two out of the recipe but one was gone before 8 am!!

I would love to share a slice but you have to come quickly or it is all going to be gone!

Check out the original recipe from the Friendship Bread website for yourself below or at their site with over 200 different recipes.  This one is worth the effort and will have everyone happy when they smell this first thing in the morning.
