Easy to Make Amish Cinnamon Bread

Years ago when I was traveling with family, I had my first sampling of Amish Cinnamon Bread. To say it was amazing would be an understatement. It was a small bakery in Wisconsin that offered this scrumptious bread and I was hooked from the very first bite. At the time I wasn’t a food blogger, so I didn’t give it a second thought to how it was actually made.

Apparently, when the Amish make bread, it’s a looooonnng process. We are talking days to make. I don’t know about you, but I don’t have that kind of time on my hands. Not for bread at least!

When I saw this easy-to-make Amish Cinnamon Bread on Pinterest last week, I knew that I had to try it. I had to try it for YOU! Make sure it was worth the hour to make. Okay, it takes like 20 minutes to prepare and then you can get other things done around the house while it bakes for 45 minutes. This sounded much better than waiting days for bread yeast to rise.

I’m happy to say that this bread is amazing! You can make it in a loaf (the recipe actually makes 2 loaves!) or muffins – whichever way you’d like. Either way, you won’t be disappointed. I promise.

Batter:

1 cup butter, softened

2. Cream together butter, 2 cups of sugar and 2 eggs in a stand mixer. Add milk, flour and baking soda. Blend until completely combined.

3. Put 1/2 of the batter into two greased loaf pans. (Basically pour 1/4 of the total batter into each pan.)

4. Mix in a small bowl the 2/3 cup of sugar and cinnamon.  Sprinkle 3/4 of cinnamon mixture on the top of the batter in each pan.

5. Pour (or scoop!) remaining batter  to pans. Sprinkle with the remaining cinnamon mixture. Swirl with knife.

6. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes and toothpick comes out clean. Cool slightly before removing from pan.

7. Enjoy. You’ve just made one of the easiest Amish breads you’ll ever make.

  1. I’m sure that the yeasted version would be fantastic too, but this one just look so wonderful and soft! Yum, I love it and I definitely need to try it! :–)

    I just tried making this bread and I noticed that you didn’t specify which size loaf pan to use-I tried 8 inch pans and it took more like 1 hour to cook. Did you use 10 inch pans?

  3. Renee Michalzik says:

    what if you don’t have a stand mixer? will a hand mixer work?

  4. Finally made this bread and all I can say is WOW. Great recipe with lots of flavor and super moist. Will definitely be making this again and again and again. Love the simplicity of the recipe. Everyone in the house loved it. Oh and as a bonus it made the house smell wonderful while it was baking and for several hours after. Thanks for such a successful recipe that actually turned out looking just like the pics. To the person that commented on cooking time , I used a standard size loaf pan for mine and it took 1 hour to bake. All ovens and climates may vary the cooking time some.

  5. Just put two loaves of this in the oven and my house smells amazing!! My three year old keeps asking if it’s done yet. I can’t wait to dig into this, I LOVE Amish friendship bread but the kneading and waiting just don’t work for me, I need that sweet, warm deliciousness now!

    I made this 4 my Pool League and it was gone lite frosted

  7. Just made two loaves and the kitchen does smell wonderful. Put a dash of vanilla in the batter and added chopped pecans to the cinnamon mixture. I used regular loaf pans and it took about 55-65 minutes to cook. This is a great recipe and very easy to make. I don’t know if this bread freezes well, as I am not sure these loaves will be around long enough to make it to the freezer.

  8. Can I half this recipe and it still turn out right?

  9. Do you add vinegar/lemon juice to the buttermilk too or just if you are using regular milk.? Would skim milk work?

  10. I just made this in mini loaf pans and in mini muffin tins OMG ITS AWESOME! baked between 15/20 then while warm sprinkled sugar on top lightly…they will be going on my Christmas goodies trays to give to family and friends! Thank you!

      Hi,

      I was just going to try this recipe. I also have the mini loaf pans – did you use four of them then? or just two? Thank you.

  11. Melanie Fisher says:

    This is pretty close to the family recipe I lost but I think what’s missing is salt.

  12. what temperature should I set oven for glass loaf pans?

  13. Momma of 7 says:

    Yummy !!! Great recipe…as is…no changes !

  14. I must say my house smells good!!! I can’t stop laughing at myself though… I totally read the recipe card wrong (novice bread maker here!!) I read it as two cups vinegar plus 2 tablespoons… Well those loaves did turn out gorgeous, and honestly weren’t unpalatable having had so much vinegar in them. I did toss them though ( well of course!! Duh!)

    The new loaves are cooking as we speak. I did use salted butter as I wasn’t sure which kind it called for…oh and I also put brown sugar on and in one of the two loaves.

  15. Just made these tonight. Turned out great! I greased the pans and sprinkled some of the cinnamon sugar mixture in the pans and dusted it around before putting batter in. The bread is delicious the way it is but I think I might add a teaspoon of vanilla if I make it again. I also think it would be great with chopped apples in it. Not sure what amount to add though. Any suggestions on that?

    I make this Amazing “Amish Cinnamon Bread” last week and it is absolutely AMAZING. It sure is a treat for your taste buds. I can’t recommend it any higher.

  17. We are getting some wintry snow mix and just put 2 loaves of this bread in the oven, I am sure it is going to be delicious!! Saw it on Facebook. :)

  18. What would the baking instructions be if I wanted to use a regular muffin tin?

  19. This recipe does not call for salt. Can you tell me why? Thought salt was an important ingredient in baking…… Thanks

    • I was coming to comment the same thing. I made the recipe as it’s written but it needs salt. I will add a teaspoon next time.

  20. I made this bread today but cut in half for one loaf. I did add some salt about 1/2 tsp and when adding cider vinegar to milk I
    accidentaly put 2 tabs. I thought I had ruined it but baked it anyway. All I can say after tasting I will always make it this way it is the bomb!!!
