This Cinnamon Swirl Quick Bread is amazing! This bread comes together in minutes and doesn’t require a mixer or yeast. Simply mix together the dry ingredients and wet ingredients seperatly than fold together to create a thick batter. Than I layer the batter with the cinnamon sugar mixture then swirl it with my knife. That’s it!

The sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar on top give the bread a nice crunch. It’s the BEST part!


De’Longhi has created the premium Lattissima Pro in partnership with Nespresso and is compatible with Nespresso pods. I fell in love with this machine! It fits perfectly in my small kitchen and offers so many options to get the perfect cup of coffee every time!

The machine provides six pre-programmed drinks: ristretto, espresso, lungo, cappuccino, latte, hot milk and hot water for simple, one touch beverage brewing with the perfect amount of milk every time.

From automatic and manual espresso, cappuccino and coffee machines De’Longhi has so many one touch options when it comes to making the perfect cup of coffee at home.

This cinnamon swirl bread goes perfectly alongside a cup of Nespresso.

The glaze is totally optional but I think it makes the bread! Simply combine powdered sugar and milk and drizzle over the cooled bread.

I like to serve this bread warm with a bit of butter slathered on top and a drizzle of maple syrup! Enjoy!
