- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp. orange zest (optional)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups milk
- 2/3 cup vegetable oil
- First you will want to get all your ingredients into place.
Next, preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Grease your loaf pan.
- Combine the 1 tbsp of cinnamon and sugar and set aside!
Next you will want to combine the dry ingredients, flour, sugar, baking powder, soda, and salt, in a medium size mixing bowl. Set aside.
Next in a large mixing bowl you will want to beat eggs, milk, vanilla and orange zest.
Next, you will want to slowly add the dry mixture to the wet mixture. It will have more of a bread texture than cake like texture.
Next you will want to pour the mixture to there is about an inch left from mixture to top of loaf pan.
Right before you put it in the oven, sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar mixture on top, swirl in with a spatula or knife.
Place in the oven and bake for about 40-50 minutes or until center is cooked, you can test this by inserting a toothpick into the center of the loaf if it comes out clean or just a little wet that is okay.
