Amazing Amish Cinnamon Bread

For many years now, I have had the recipe for the Amish bread that took several days and you had to pass it around. I fell in love with the Amish bread, but now I came across the quick alternative that takes only minutes. I also have the recipe for the original I will post soon. This bread is very moist with the perfect touch of sweetness. I love going to Lancaster, Pennsylvania to Amish and shopping in all of the stores that are owned by them. I came across a woman who has given me some of their family recipes that I will post. The one reason why I will travel there is for the cinnamon rolls. And I have the recipe with the secret ingredient. I cannot wait to share with all of you. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!!


1 cup softened butter,( 2 sticks)
2 cups granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 cups buttermilk or if you have no buttermilk, a quick alternative is 2 cups milk plus 2 tablespoons white vinegar, let sit for 10 minutes)
4 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda

Cinnamon/Sugar Mixture:
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Mix together and set aside
