Handmade gifts are the best kind, particularly when they're edible. They're so much more personal, and no one can resist a homemade fresh baked bread, especially when its prettily packaged. This year for our neighbors, girls teachers and for colleagues I decided to make this Cinnamon Chocolate chip bread which is easy to make, thoughtful and delicious.
Swirled with cinnamon sugar, topped with more, and dotted with teeny tiny chocolate chips. It’s almost like cake – soft, tender, and moist. I mean common, look at that deep, dark ripple of cinnamon!
Your kitchen is going to smell like a bakery. There is just nothing like the warm, sweet scent of cinnamon bread baking in the oven especially on chilly mornings! Similar to how banana bread and carrot cake’s flavor intensifies overnight, this bread is just the same. You could use this recipe to make muffins, too.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 large egg, at room temperature
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup buttermilk (Or make your own with 1 tablespoon vinegar and 1 cup milk)
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/3 cup granulated sugar
