Cinnamon-Sugar Crust Cinnamon-Ribbon Bread

I have six other recipes for cinnamon bread on my site. But this one’s different. Really, it is.

It has a cinnamon-sugar crust that’s so good. I find myself wanting to eat crust and that never happens.

Cinnamon-Sugar Crust Cinnamon-Ribbon Bread - Even picky eaters who want the crust cut off will go nuts for this sweet, slightly crunchy crust. The interior is so soft & fluffy!

Normally I am not into crust or crusty breads. Although I like texture, I prefer soft and fluffy to crusty and hard. I would never cut off the crust like a 7 year old, but I don’t go out of my way to eat it, either.

But this crust is like shingles of sweetness on a big fluffy white house, flaking off in big chunks that are so nice to nibble on. It’s reminiscent of streusel topping, which I enjoy picking off unsuspecting coffee cakes and muffins.

The bread is so fast and easy to make and comes together in 5 minutes with a whisk, in one bowl. I love it when I don’t have to drag out my mixer because it would seem to defeat the purpose of calling a bread a ‘quickbread’ if the ingredients need to be creamed, creating mixer dishes. Nothing quick about that.

The same cinnamon-sugar mixture that’s sprinkled on top before baking is also sprinkled into the batter, creating a cinnamon-sugar ribbon in the middle of the loaf.

The only way to create that thick, delectable, wall of sweet crust on top is to sprinkle cinnamon-sugar generously over the surface before baking.

Not all of it adheres to the bread and you’ll have to remind your kids and husband to ‘Please, eat over your plate.’ And remind yourself, too, so that you’re not recreating a sandy beach on your kitchen floor with the stray cinnamon-sugar granules.

The crust reminds me of sweet bark that’s slightly hardened, firm, and full of intense flavor.

After peeling away the bark, the soft, light, fluffy interior is revealed thanks to the buttermilk. If you don’t normally keep buttermilk on hand, you can cheat and make some with regular milk by adding 1 or 2 tablespoons of vinegar or lemon juice to one cup of milk and waiting for about 10 minutes.

A bit of oil is used for softness because oil produces softer, springier cakes, muffins, and breads than butter. And this bread sure is bouncy soft.

As to not miss any buttery flavor, I used a little butter, too. While baking, the butter and brown sugar caramelize, creating subtle caramel undertones.

The ribbon of cinnamon-sugar that floats through the interior provides another pop of flavor. It’s a bit like Cinnamon Swirl Bread, minus the work of kneading or rolling the dough into a cylinder.

The cinnamon flavor is present and notable, but it’s not overwhelming. Feel free to add more if you’re a true fiend.

The bread is flavorful enough that it doesn’t need butter but if you’re so inclined, toasting it and smearing liberally with butter takes it from really good to gobble-the-whole-loaf supremely good.

Our toaster got a workout and has the cinnamon-sugar bits stuck in the crumb tray to show for it.

Such an easy bread to make with great resutls, no kneading and no fuss.

Cinnamon-Sugar Crust Cinnamon-Ribbon Bread

The cinnamon-sugar crust is like sweet bark that encases the moist, light, soft and fluffy bread. A ribbon of cinnamon-sugar floats through the interior, providing another pop of cinnamon flavor. The batter comes together quickly and easily in this no-fuss, no-knead, easy and very flavorful loaf.

Yield: one 9-by-5-inch loaf

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 50 minutes

Total Time: 55 mintues

Ingredients:

1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 large egg
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup canola or vegetable oil
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cup buttermilk
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
pinch salt, optional and to taste

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan with floured cooking spray, or grease and flour the pan; set aside (don't use an 8-by-4-inch pan; it's too small)
  2. In a small bowl, combine 1/3 cup granulated sugar with the cinnamon and stir to incorporate; set aside.
  3. In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter, about 1 minute. After the butter has cooled momentarily (so you don't scramble the egg), add the egg, brown sugar, oil, vanilla, and whisk to combine. Add the buttermilk and whisk to incorporate.
  4. Add the flour, nutmeg, baking soda, optional salt, and stir until just combined; don't overmix. Batter will be thick and lumpy. Don't try to stir the lumps smooth.
  5. Pour half the batter into prepared pan, smoothing it lightly with a spatula. Sprinkle three-fourths (75%) of the cinnamon-sugar mixture (just eyeball it), distributed evenly over the surface of the batter. This creates the cinnamon ribbon.
  6. Top with remaining half of the batter, smoothing it lightly with a spatula. Sprinkle remaining cinnamon-sugar mixture, distributed evenly over the top. It looks like a lot, but it's necessary to form the crust, and not all of it aheres.
  7. Bake for 45 to 55 minutes (mine took 50), or until top is set and firm, and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, or with a few moist crumbs, but no batter. Allow bread to cool in pan for about 15 minutes before inverting.
  8. Invert bread over the sink or a paper towel to catch some of the non-adhered cinnamon-sugar and sprinkle it back on the bread. Place bread on wire rack to cool completely. Bread will keep airtight at room temperature for up to 5 days, or may be frozen for up to 3 months. Makes wonderful toast.

Cinnamon or cinnamon bread fan? Crust-eater?

I’m a huge cinnamon fan. More is better. It’s rare that I make something and don’t use at least a pinch of cinnamon.

I like texture, but normally don’t like most bread crusts because that’s not what I call texture. Most of the time it’s like chewing on dry, tasteless cardboard. Why bother. Until this bread.

    I believe we’ve discussed a mutual love of cinnamon before. I do enjoy crust, partly because I am a hands on play-with-my food sort of nibbler who likes to peel the crust off and eat it separately sometimes.

    The crust on this caught my attention–it looks sooo good! I also thought it was a yeast bread at first glance because of all the little air pockets. I think this would be a great recipe to use my Vietnamese cinnamon in. I didn’t realize that stuff was pricey–my mom gave it to me last month. I love a good crust, but not if it’s hard and dry…and I know this loaf is quite the opposite. This will have to go on my weekend project list!

      It almost behaved like yeast bread. Really light, fluffy, soft, with some air pockets..but no yeast! Vietnamese cinnamon is like gold…I have some but never use it b/c I don’t want to ‘waste’ it, always thinking something better will come along :) If you try this bread, LMK!

    I love a title that has cinnamon twice. My family complains I put too much most if the time! Your line “’ And remind yourself, too, so that you’re not recreating a sandy beach on your kitchen floor with the stray cinnamon-sugar granules” cracked me up! Sounds all too familiar! Licking the floor might he acceptable in this situation? Eh, probably not.
    What amazes me is that I can SEE the crunchy top and soft middle through your pictures. That is hard – and completely won me over. I can just imagine the sugar and cinnamon crusting the melt in your mouth bread. Ahhh …

One of my fave things to shoot (when I’m having luck with it) is white-ish breads. Sometimes banana breads can give me a little trouble but white breads I tend to have fun with!

    Thank you for explaining the secret of the cinnamon sugar ribbon, hehe. Great idea! If It were me I would totally make cinnamon sugar STRIPES throughout the thing… but I go overboard, a lot.

    I love quick breads like this – simple, easy to throw together, and crazy in the flavour department. This looks amazing, Averie. It’s so moist and dense inside and that crispy, cinnamon-sugary topping is the perfect pickable crust. I’m buying a carton of buttermilk for another recipe this weekend and thanks to this recipe, now I know what I’m going to be using the leftovers for!

      Oh I can’t wait to hear if you make this! I know you’re going to love it! And also buttermilk and whatever else you’re making, I’ll stay tuned b/c I always have some on hand to use, too!

    Yes! The crust is always my favorite part and this cinnamon master piece is calling out to me.

    OMG that cinnamon sugar crusted bread….I’ve been trying to lay off baking recently in an effort to be healthier but I think I might just have a relapse tonight. I just need to buy some brown sugar!

    Wow! This looks delicious. I LOVE the crust on coffee cake, the more cinnamony (new word?) the better!

    That is so funny that you say that because I hate crust too! My mom and I have a system when we have bread. She takes the crust and hands me the soft fluffy middle. I think, by the looks of it, this bread might just covert me to a crust lover (sorry mom). :)
