Last week I dropped off mini loaves of cinnamon bread to Thomas and Caroline’s teachers. My mom has been making cinnamon bread every Christmas season for as long as I can remember for neighbors and friends. A few years ago I stole her tradition. These little loaves are SO easy to whip up quickly in a large batch and are extremely delicious. I always make one large loaf for my family to eat for breakfast too.
I stock up on holiday ceramic mini loaf pans for $1 each at Michaels. There are so many colors and prints. You can also use
disposable tins too. I found some super cute holiday disposables and ceramic pans on Amazon!
Christmas Cinnamon Bread
2 cups sugar
4 cups flour
2 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 cups milk
2/3 cup vegetable oil

2/3 cup sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine sugar, flour, baking powder & salt. Set aside. Beat eggs, milk & oil. Gradually add dry mixture to wet until just moist. Grease baking dishes & pour mixture an inch below to the top to compensate for rise. Combine topping, spoon on each loaf and swirl in with a knife, leaving some on top. Bake 40 minutes.
