I’ve been planning on making Ele’s Cinnamon Loaves recipe for a week or so. She had made it when we went for St. Patrick’s Day dinner and it was so good! She told me I’d had it before, I didn’t really remember it. But I remember it Now! And now that I know how good cinnamon is for me…it’s actually health food!
I had hoped to be up earlier to do it, but it was one of those days…I did however get it done! 🙂
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup canola oil
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup sour cream (I used fat-free)
1/4 cup milk (I used 2 %)
2 cups flour
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
Cream together 1 cup sugar and oil. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Blend in sour cream and milk.
Stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add to creamed mixture. Mix well. Spread 1/4 of the batter into each of 2 greased 9x5x3″ loaf pans.
Combine remaining sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle all but 1 tablespoon over the batter in pans. Top each pan with remaining batter. Cut through batter gently with a knife to make swirling effect with the cinnamon sugar. Top with remaining cinnamon sugar. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes. Check to see if it is done by using the toothpick method.
And finally…the finished product…
They smell so good!! One is destined to go to Gail’s house and one we’ll keep. I still have to figure out the points value, but I’ll get to that. Whatever the point value…it’s worth it!
In this photo, you can see the wonderful oven “hot” gloves that Ralph bought for me. Sadly, I don’t know where he got them so I can’t recommend a place to buy them. They most likely came from a catalog. If I can figure out which one, I’ll let you all know. They are a great help when taking hot things from the oven or microwave. I have to take care of my delicate hands, don’t I? 😉
So if nothing else, I accomplished something today…a delicious goodie that I get to share. That makes me happy.
Off now to be productive…Happy Wednesday!
