Delicious, Easy, Mix & Pour Amish Cinnamon Bread
When I saw this recipe and shared it on Face book I knew I would make it and I have today! My house smells delicious from it's baking and I think it just delightful.
There seems so many ways to serve this. As a tea bread, a sliced loaf cake topped with whipped cream or peaches? Maybe spread with a cream cheese and apricot spread? It seems a very handy bread to have in my freezer which is where one of the two loaves will go. One thing I can attest too, I really do like this a lot. It reminds me of a sour cream coffee cake but less dense and more tender.
