Cinnamon-Walnut Quick Bread

Cinnamon-Walnut Quick Bread

This old-fashioned recipe turns out a deliciously moist quick bread, with a robust cinnamon flavor and buttery texture. Serve warmed for breakfast, spread with butter and/or cream cheese.

Cinnamon-Walnut Quick Bread

  • Ingredients:
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 2-1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 5 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 11 tablespoons milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup shortening, melted

Preheat the oven to 350°F and generously grease a standard-size loaf pan (9¼" x 5¼" x 2¾").

Combine the melted butter, walnuts, cinnamon and 1/2 cup of the sugar in a bowl. Mix well and set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together the remaining 1/2 cup of sugar, flour, salt and baking soda.

Place the apple cider vinegar in a measuring cup and fill with the milk to the 1-cup mark (equivalent to 11 tablespoons).

In a medium bowl, beat the eggs and whisk in the vinegar-milk mixture. Gradually add the melted shortening, then add the entire mixture to the dry ingredients. Combine well.

Give the walnut-cinnamon mixture a stir, then fold it into the batter, swirling it through, but not combining completely.

Spread the batter in the prepared loaf pan and bake for 45 to 55 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then finish cooling on a rack.

Is there any adjustment for 5000 ft altitude?

I made this as a hostess gift for a friend. It was so delicious! (It also made my house smell heavenly when I baked it). I only had almond milk in the house and it made a nice substitution in a pinch. Great recipe!

This is delicious !! It did take about 15 min longer to cook but it was worth it :)

This is my second recipe I have tried of yours in 2 days and I am very happy with them both !!

Thanks !!!!
