Judging by the number of muffin recipes on the blog, I think it’s safe to say I’m a sucker for quick breads–and so here’s another quick bread recipe ;). This bread is pure cinnamony deliciousness! You could eat it for breakfast but it’s really more like dessert. The sour cream keeps it super moist and the cinnamon sugar topping gets slightly crunchy – yum! The topping reminds me of Amish friendship bread – you know, the bread with the starter that you have to feed and bake like once a week…until everyone is burned-out?? Yeah, it’s kind of like that except without the burnout =). And I love cinnamon chips, so pretty much I liked everything about this bread =). I made mini loaves, but you could easily make muffins instead. You could also make one larger loaf, but to me it’s no longer quick bread if you have to wait an hour for it to bake! I’m trying to get caught up on my blogging while I’m on spring break and I’m almost ready to start posting pictures that I’ve taken with my new camera =D.  Enjoy!

Snickerdoodle Bread
1 1/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup sour cream
3/4 cup cinnamon chips
1 tbsp flour

Topping:
2 tbsp sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine 1 1/4 cup flour and baking powder in a large bowl.
2. In a separate bowl, cream together the butter and 1 cup sugar, salt and cinnamon until fluffy.
3. Add egg and mix well. Add vanilla and sour cream and mix to combine.
4. Stir in flour mixture until just combined. Coat the cinnamon chips with 1 tablespoon of flour and stir into the batter.
5. Spoon the batter into three or four greased mini loaf pans (or one 9×5 loaf pans). Combine the 2 tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon. Coat greased loaf pans with cinnamon sugar. Divide batter evenly between pans and sprinkle remaining cinnamon sugar over each loaf.
6. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes for mini loaves (or 60-70 minutes for full-size loaves), or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool 5 minutes before removing from pan.
