This bread is an excellent companion for coffee. Serve it up, take a seat, and enjoy the company you're in!
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups sugar, divided
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
1 1/2 to 2 tsp milk
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease the bottom only of a 9in x 5in x 3in loaf pan; set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, 1 cup sugar, baking soda and salt. In a small bowl, combine buttermilk, egg and oil; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. In another small bowl, combine cinnamon and the remaining 1/2 cup sugar.
Pour half the batter into the prepared loaf pan; sprinkle with half the cinnamon-sugar. Carefully spread the remaining batter and sprinkle the top with remaining cinnamon-sugar. Swirl a knife through the batter.
Bake 45-50 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan, then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
For glaze, combine confectioners' sugar and enough milk to achieve drizzling consistency. Drizzle over bread.
