Cinnamon-Swirl Bread

I still think my apple bread is #1 but this is a nice dessert bread that is easy to make and most people usually have the ingredients in their house at all times.

I forgot to marble it!  But it still tasted great and I kind of like the smile face :)


1 1/3 cups sugar
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans or walnuts
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 cup milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour the bottom and sides of a 9X5X3 inch loaf pan.

In a small bowl, combine 1/3 cup of the sugar, the nuts, and cinnamon; set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the remaining 1 cup sugar, the flour, baking powder, and salt.

In a medium bowl, beat egg with a fork; stir in milk and oil. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy).

Pour half of the batter into prepared pan. Sprinkle with half of the cinnamon mixture. Repeat with remaining batter and cinnamon mixture. Draw a wide rubber scraper down through the batter and up in a circular motion to marble. Bake for 50 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.

Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack. Wrap and store bread overnight before slicing.
