  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter until light and fluffy, about 1 minute. Gradually beat in 1 cup sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk just until mixed.
  2. Transfer half of the mixture to a 9-in. x 5-in. x 3-in. loaf pan coated with nonstick cooking spray. Combine cinnamon and remaining sugar. Sprinkle three-fourths of mixture over batter. Top with remaining butter and sprinkle with remaining cinnamon mixture.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.

I made this for a weekend brunch. It went over really well. Everyone loved it. I suggest serving this with a flavored butter! Try it toasted too...heavenly!

Awesome! I almost didn't bake this today but am so glad I did. I actually used all the cinnamon sugar mixture for the middle layer. And I added a topping of 1/8 tsp. of cinnamon, 1/4 cup of whit...

followed recipe exactly and it turned out amazing! Instead of butter milk I used skim milk just shy of 1 cup with 2 tbsp lemon juice and let it sit five minutes.

good start, but not as cinnamon-filled taste as I was looking forward to. Think I might make more of a crumbled struessel type of mix to layer in the middle next time and may even think about ad...
