I love any kind of baked bread! Especially anything with a good crunch on the top! This looks sooo yummy!
Cinnamon Swirl Bread
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans, toasted
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 cup sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1/3 cup cooking oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray the bottom and sides of a 9″x5″x3″ loaf pan. Combine 1/3 cup of sugar, pecans, and cinnamon in a small bowl. Set aside.
Combine 1 cup of sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, beat egg. Then, stir in milk and oil. Make a well in the flour mixture and add the egg mixture. Stir just until mixed. Do not overmix.
Pour half of the batter into loaf pan. Sprinkle with half of the cinnamon mixture. Repeat. With a wide rubber scraper or spatula, swirl mixtures together with a down and up circular motion.
Bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until done. Cool in pan for about 10 minutes. Then, cool completely on a wire rack.
Enjoy a slice of bread (or 2 or 3) loaded with butter and a cup or coffee! Yes I love butter....so what? :)

My sweet little Alyssa has a kind little heart. She goes to a preschool at a church here in Fort Smith. She said today they were looking at the Resurrection Eggs and going through the story of Christ and his death and resurrection. She said two of the little boys were punching Jesus. She said, "You are not supposed to punch Jesus. He died for you and you are to LOVE Him. " I could not be more proud of her. I know this may be small in the eyes of others, but I pray she will always be bold in her faith and stand up for her Savior. Because yes we are to LOVE Christ. He made the ultimate sacrifice for us.
