I love a good Cinnamon Bread. Heck, I love just about anything with Cinnamon. My only problem with Cinnamon is like my issue with Garlic. I always have to double whatever amount is recommended so I can really taste the flavor.
To help "fix" this little problem of mine, I've started using Ground Saigon Cinnamon which is a little more pungent than regular Ground Cinnamon.
Now the beauty of this Cinnamon Bread recipe is that is it super simple to make. And I mean simple. Throw all the ingredients into a mixing bowl, combine and bake for 1 hour.
Depending on your oven, it may be ready sooner so make sure you check it before the 1-hour mark. In my case, the bread passed the toothpick test at the 50-minute mark.
💭 Ingredient Substitution
If you don't have any vegetable shortening on hand you can substitute for an equal amount of butter at room temperature.
