My Mom’s Cinnamon Bread

I’m a HUGE fan of cinnamon. I mean, I put it in almost anything! Baked beans, pancakes, pork roast, etc. So when I heard my sisters talking about my mom’s cinnamon bread, I just HAD to make it! I don’t know why I hadn’t before! It rivals the one you may have gotten from one of those membership stores! Only it will be YOUR house that smells amazing! And yes, you might have to give out samples if anyone stops by and smells it! haha

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
