Cinnamon Bread

One of my super sweet patients gave me this recipe.
She told me that it was her late husband's favorite.
I think it might be my husband's favorite too.

I compare it to Amish bread, 
but so much easier.
(No starter, no feeding.)

Cinnamon Bread
(makes 2 loaves)

2 sticks butter, softened
2 2/3 cups sugar, divided
2 eggs
2 cups buttermilk
4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a the large bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter, 2 cups of the sugar, and the eggs.  Add the buttermilk, flour, and baking soda.  In a small bowl, mix together the remaining 2/3 cups sugar and the cinnamon.

Prepare 2 loaf pans and place 1/4 of the batter into each pan.  Sprinkle with 3/4 of the cinnamon sugar mixture onto each loaf.  Top each loaf pan with the remaining batter and then sprinkle the remaining sugar on top of each.  Swirl the cinnamon sugar into the batter with knife.

Bake for 50-60 minutes until a tester comes out clean.
