While this bread was baking in the oven, the house smelled SOOO divine. It was cinnamon-y, bread-y, fall-y and sweet and I couldn’t wait for a bite of warm, soft bread. I could tell it was going to be a good recipe.
It’s not very often we make bread recipes…so when we do the whole loaf gets eaten in about 2 minutes. Luckily there were 2 loaves.
There is nothing better than freshly baked bread. I loved the combination of cinnamon chips and butterscotch chips. They get all melty and gooey and swirled within the bread. Cinnamon chips are quite possibly the best invention of all time. The only negative…I can only find cinnamon chips in certain stores (Marianos why don’t you ever have them!?!?) and around this time of year so I like to stock up.
Keep this recipe in mind for some awesomely awesome fall baking.
Happy weekend, all!
- 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 2 eggs
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 heaping teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 cup cinnamon chips
- 1/2 cup butterscotch chips
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- Preheat over to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour 2 loaf pans; set aside. You can also make muffins, just line the muffin tray with paper liners and reduce the baking time to 18-22 minutes.
- To the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together butter, both sugars, eggs and vanilla. Beat on high power until light and fluffy, about 3 to 4 minutes.
- Use a spatula to scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add sour cream and continue to beat on high power, about 1 more minute.
- Scrape down the sides of the bowl again. Add flour, cinnamon, baking powder and salt. Beat on low speed, just until incorporated, about 1 minute.
- Lightly toss the cinnamon chips and butterscotch chips in 1-2 tablespoons of flour. Add the chips to the batter, folding them in with a spatula.
- Divide the batter evenly between the 2 prepared loaf pans (or muffins, if using). Smooth the tops with a spatula.
- Mix together cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl. Sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar on top of the batter.
- Bake about 50 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
- Allow bread to cool in their pan, on a wire rack, before turning over to remove from pan.
- makes 2 loaves
