Steps To Make Cinnamon Sugar Donut Bread:
Step 1: To start let’s preheat the oven to 350°F. Begin by combining the oil, unsalted butter, and sugar in a bowl. Whisk them together until they blend into a mixture that will act as the base, for our bread.
Step 2: Next add the eggs and vanilla to the mixture. Beat it until it becomes a silky consistency. As you mix you’ll notice the delightful aroma of vanilla coming through indicating that you’re on the right track.
Step 3: Now it’s time to incorporate the remaining ingredients and buttermilk into your mixture. To ensure a perfect batter alternate adding amounts of each ingredient while stirring gently. Don’t forget to use a spatula to scrape down the sides of your bowl so that every delicious bit is fully mixed in.
Step 4: For a twist take half a cup of batter from your mixture. Transfer it to another bowl. Add molasses and cinnamon to this portion of batter and stir until everything is thoroughly combined. This special combination will infuse our bread with flavors of donuts.
Step 5: With both mixtures prepared generously spray cooking spray onto your loaf pan for easy removal. Start by spooning half of your batter into the pan followed by half of your molasses mixture.
Step 6: Once you’ve used up all the batter and molasses mixture to create layers of flavors grab a butter knife.
Mix all the ingredients gently until they are well combined to create a blend of flavors.
Step 7: Place your loaf in the oven. Let it bake for 45 to 50 minutes. Once its finished allow it to cool for 10 minutes, in the loaf pan before removing it.
Step 8: To add the final touch melt some butter. Generously brush it over the top of the loaf. Then sprinkle a mixture of cinnamon and sugar on top making sure to cover all sides, including the bottom!
Step 9: Now all that’s left is to savor this Cinnamon Sugar Donut Bread. It’s truly delightful!
When you’re mixing the dry and wet ingredients ensure sure to add them alternately starting and ending with the dry ingredients. This technique helps avoid, over mixing, which can lead to a denser and tougher bread. Always keep in mind that when it comes to mixing the batter it’s better to do less. It’s okay to have lumps as they will disappear during baking so stop mixing as soon as the dry ingredients are fully incorporated for a light and fluffy texture.
