Cinnamon Bread-The Southern Lady CooksCinnamon Bread with my homemade cinnamon chips may be the best bread recipe on my site!  This cinnamon bread is my favorite and I will make this for gifts anytime I give a food gift to a family friend or relative.  I love cinnamon and there is something about the homemade chips that just makes this recipe delicious and it stands out from all the others.  This bread could be frozen, keeps well in a cool place for several days and is delicious with coffee anytime.  Slather it with butter for a real treat.  Reheat in oven or microwave. If you like cinnamon, you can’t go wrong with this bread.

Cinnamon bread makes the perfect gift for a friend or neighbor.

1 stick or 8 tablespoons or 1/2 cup butter, softened

3/4 cup white granulated sugar

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 cup buttermilk

1/3 cup sour cream

1 cup my homemade cinnamon chips or can use bought cinnamon chips

Combine softened butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla extract and cream with a mixer in a large bowl.  In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and ground cinnamon.  Combine with creamed mixture and add buttermilk and sour cream.  Mix with mixer.  Fold in cinnamon chips with a spoon.  Spray a 9 x 5 bread pan with cooking spray and add mixture. (I sprinkle a little white sugar on top before baking)  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 55 to 60 minutes until center tests done.  Makes 1 loaf.  Enjoy!

  1. I’ve made the bread multiple times it is soooooo good. I can’t make it too often cause I have no self control because it’s that good. I do want to try making the recipe for muffins…. Any idea how long it would take for them to bake?5 stars

    • The Southern Lady says:

      Hi Christine, I would say around 35 to 40 minutes on the muffins. I check the centers with a fork or toothpick after 30 minutes. We do have a recipe for cinnamon chip banana muffins on the site if you want to check it out. Here is the link: https://thesouthernladycooks.com/cinnamon-chip-banana-muffins/ I am happy you are enjoying this recipe and thank you for letting us know and the great rating. Have a great weekend.

  2. This is delicious. I made your cinnamon chips and it couldn’t be easier. I will definitely make this again. I am wondering if I could add diced apples
    Thanks for a great recipe5 stars

  3. Found cinnamon chips at Meijers. I make cinnamon chip cookles.

  4. Thank you I will keep that in mind! I took a look at the chips recipe.

  5. This bread looks very good. Please, can you tell me what the texture is like – I mean, like the texture of maybe rye bread or more like a tea bread (banana, or zucchini). Thank you. Interested in trying it.

  6. I’ve made this before and we loved it. I was wanting to make again this evening but don’t have buttermilk. Any idea on how it would be if I used regular milk?

  7. R. Springer says:

    This bread is delicious.5 stars

  8. Have you ever just used chocolate chips?

  9. Julie Cattano-Ryan says:

    Thank you so much for not writing a book before we can get to the recipe! This looks delicious . I will be trying it!

    • The Southern Lady says:

      Thank you so much Julie for recognizing that we don’t write a long novel. We try to just give you the recipe, so you can get to cooking 🙂

  10. Do you have to use the chips or could you just add more cinnamon?

    • The Southern Lady says:

      I don’t know, I’ve only made it the way the recipe is written.

    • I can’t find cinnamon chips anywhere where I live. I could buy them online but that is too pricey, especially if I’d like to try to make this for gifting.

      I cannot commit to making the homemade version, again especially if I’d like to keep things simple and less laborious. No disrespect intended; I think making the chips is a great idea.

      I’d still like to try this recipe; I’m thinking on upping the cinnamon OR going out on a limb and maybe using mini choc chips tossed in cinnamon before adding to the batter?

      Necessity is the mother of invention, right?

      • The Southern Lady says:

        You can definitely try that. I’ve never had an issue making the cinnamon chips. I make a lot at one time and then I have them when I need them.

    • I checked out your recipe for homemade chips and you are right—they seem very simple to do. I will hang onto it and give it a go when I can.

      I made the recipe without the chips, upped the cinnamon to 1 tbsp. My spouse and a coworker tried it and really liked it. Adding nuts was recommended.

      I sprinkled the white sugar on top as suggested. I made 3 mini loaves and it took about 35 minutes.

      I used the sour cream but I don’t always have it in the house. Yogurt would be an excellent substitute just in case .

      Your recipes are very versatile and easy to follow; thanks so much for sharing them with us!5 stars

  11. My 9 year old twins made this bread for a Thanksgiving breakfast treat and it is delicious!!! We made cinnamon chips last night with coconut butter, coconut oil, honey and cinnamon which worked great too. Next time we’ll try your cinnamon chips just to compare. Thanks for this recipe! New tradition for Thanksgiving!

    • The Southern Lady says:

      I am so glad you and your twins enjoyed this recipe. Thank you so much for the great comment! Happy Thanksgiving!

  12. Michelle Collins says:

    I want to make this in mini loaves for gifts. Any idea how many mini loaves this would make and the cooking time for them?

    • The Southern Lady says:

      I made some smaller loaves yesterday, Michelle. I cut the cooking time by about five minutes. You can stick a fork in and if it comes out clean they are done. I would say 2 to 3 mini loaves depending on how much batter you put in each pan.

  13. Really good!!! When I make it again, I will grease and flour pans instead of just spraying because the homemade cinnamon chips stuck to the glass. Thanks for sharing and Merry Christmas! LOVE your recipes.

  14. Anita honeycutt says:

    Can whole wheat flour be used instead of all purpose flour? My husband won’t eat white flour.

  15. The recipe directions state “Combine softened butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla extract and cream with a mixer in a large bowl,” but I don’t see cream listed in the ingredients? I see that sour cream is an ingredient, but it is added later in the directions. I just want to make sure I don’t miss something – this bread looks declicious and I can’t wait to try it. Thank you so much!

    • The Southern Lady says:

      That is just a cooking term, Erin. When a recipe tells you to cream, it means that you should beat the ingredients until they form a light, uniform and creamy mixture. Hope this helps. The bread is one of our favorites and I think you will love it. Don’t ever hesitate to ask if something doesn’t seem right. We could easily make a mistake.

  16. Do the cinnamon chips taste like the candy-type such as Red Hot and Big Red gum? I prefer the natural cinnamon taste instead of the candy type.

    • The Southern Lady says:

      The cinnamon chips you make by my recipe taste like the natural cinnamon type, Michelle. I am with you, I don’t like the red hot cinnamon candy. I never buy my chips so I can’t tell you what the bought ones taste like.

  17. Made this today with the homemade cinnamon chips. Delicious cinnamon bread! When baking, it went about two inches above the 9×5 bread pan. Cooked to internal temp of 195 F. Perfect. Also, need to let it set up in the pan after baking for awhile… it’s a very moist bread.

    Where is the recipe for your cinnamon chips?
