  • 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.
