Cinnamon Loaf With A Streusel Topping

Always looking for new and wonderful things to try, here is one you will probably really like to try….again and again.

  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a 9″ x 5″ loaf pan with parchment paper. Set aside.

In a large bowl, beat the butter with the sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, 1 at a time, beating to incorporate each one well. Beat in the vanilla.

Whisk together in a large bowl the dry ingredients and alternating with the buttermilk, add the egg mixture. Set aside while you prepare the streusel.

Streusel Topping

  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cut into chunks

In a small bowl, stir together the sugar, cinnamon and flour and, with a pastry blender, cut in the butter until it looks like a bowl of large crumbs.

Now scoop one half of the cake batter into the prepared pan and smooth out, Add a layer of the streusel and then top with the remaining batter. Sprinkle the remaining streusel on top and bake in the oven for about 60-65 minutes. Test to make sureĀ a tester comes out clean.

Cool, in the pan, for about 5 minutes before turning it out on a rack to cool completely.

The streusel running through the center of this loaf is what really makes it so perfect.
