Why hello there!
Can I interest you in a warm slice of cinnamon walnut bread with honey butter? Or perhaps you would like to bake your own? I really think you should. It takes only takes forty five minutes, start to finish, and it’s lowfat to boot!
Well, technically it’s lowfat until you smother it with honey butter. Let’s just say it has the potential to be healthy, okay?
There’s not a drop of oil or butter in the recipe and it tastes sweet with a hint of spice and a crunch of walnuts. Perfect for peanut butter sandwiches, toast or holiday gift-giving.
(you will totally win brownie points if you give a loaf of this plus a jar of butternut butter to someone you love!)
You can’t really mess this bread up, even if you tried, and all you need is one bowl and a wooden spoon!
Here’s the recipe…you’ll never believe how simple it is!
Cinnamon Walnut Bread
makes one loaf
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup milk
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup walnuts
1 beaten egg
1/2 tsp salt
In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. Add the beaten egg and milk and stir. Fold in the walnuts. Pour into greased loaf pan and bake at 350 for about forty minutes, or until golden (stick a knife in the center to make sure it comes out clean). Let cool and serve with honey butter!
