September is here and while it is still in the 90s here in El Paso, fall is coming and I am so excited! I can smell the spice breads and pumpkin recipes... they are on the way!
This cinnamon bread was calling my name and I was not disappointed. It is a mix between a quick bread and a yeast bread. There is yeast in the dough and it rises for an hour before mixing in the remaining ingredients and baking. I didn't read the recipe (major rule broken!) and accidentally mixed in the baking powder in the beginning but the bread still turned out great.
