Cinnamon Swirl Quickbread

On a random Tuesday before all of my reality TV shows started I whipped together this cinnamon coffee cake.  I used a new approach as I was trying to finish off the rest of the baking ingredients in my cabinet without having to buy new ones.  I turned to where you can search recipes based on the ingredients in your kitchen.  Of course it wouldn’t be a 6X6 recipe without a few additions.  In this case I added about 1t of vanilla and topped the cake with walnut pieces.  I also did not have a loaf pan and used a 9x9in baking dish.  I am sure it would also taste great as muffins.  I would also like to try it using brown sugar as many of the user comments suggested.

Allrecipes Ingredients

  • 1/3 C sugar + 2t cinnamon combined
  • 1C sugar
  • 2C flour
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1C milk (I used Almond)
  • 1T baking powder
  • 1/3C Vegetable oil
  • 1/2t salt
  • 1/2C chopped walnuts (optional)
  • 1t vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan. In a small bowl, mix together 1/3 cup sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon; set aside.
  2. In large bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt and remaining 1 cup sugar. Combine egg, milk, and oil; add to flour mixture. Stir until just moistened.
  3. Pour half of the batter into pan. Sprinkle with half the reserved cinnamon/sugar mixture. Repeat with remaining batter and cinnamon/sugar mixture. Draw a knife through batter to marble.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 45 to 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.  I baked mine for a shorter amount of time for the square baking dish.
