Cinnamon Loaf Cake Recipe

The holidays may be over, but we are still craving baked goods to go with our coffee and tea. This Cinnamon Loaf Cake was so simple and quite possibly one of the tastiest cakes we have made.

Cinnamon Loaf Cake Recipe
Prep: 15 min.
Bake: 55 min. + cooling
Makes:  1 loaf

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (we used a gluten-free flour and it came out fantastic)
  • 1-1/4 cups sugar, divided
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 3-1/2 tsp ground cinnamon, divided
  • 1-1/4 tsp salt
  •  1/3 cup STAR Butter Flavored Olive Oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp butter, melted

Preheat the oven to 350° and grease a 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder, 1-1/2 teaspoons cinnamon and salt.

In a second large bowl, combine the eggs, milk, oil and vanilla.  Then stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.

Pour half of the batter into the loaf pan.

In a small bowl, combine the remaining sugar and cinnamon; stir in butter. Add half of this mixture to the batter in the pan and cut through batter with a knife to swirl the topping. Add the rest of the batter on top and repeat.

Bake at 350° for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
