Learned about this recipe from Julie Blanner Blog.


You can also make this in 2 - 1 pound loaf pans or cut the recipe in half for just 1 loaf pan and bake 50-60 minutes. Do not overfill. Make an additional loaf or discard any excess batter.

Bake time varies depending on your oven and altitude. Insert a toothpick into the center of the loaf. When it comes out clean, it's done.

Let the bread cool to room temperature before wrapping or serving.

To make it lighter, substitute half the oil with unsweetened apple sauce and or eliminate or reduce the cinnamon sugar mixture on top.
