Too much of chocolate on the blog already! I sometimes wonder if the name of the blog should have been theloveofchocolate instead :P. I am completely partial for chocolate based desserts! I might as well take this name change seriously sometime! Until then, I have baked this Snickerdoodle bread for you guys.
I love the snickerdoodle cookies! And everything else that has cinnamon in it! Cinnamon is such a lovely ingredient for baking. The best part is the warm, heavenly, inviting smell that engulfs the house when you bake something with cinnamon in it.

I have been sitting with a bag of Hershey’s Cinnamon Chips for a long time, wondering what to bake with them. And then I saw this Snickerdoodle bread recipe by Barbarabakes on pinterest and loved it for its simplicity. I am always pressed for time. After a whole day at work, I prefer something quick and hassle free.
And this is a quick bread. Quick breads don’t contain yeast, so no waiting for the bread to rise. The snickerdoodle bread is soft, optimally moist and full of wonderful cinnamon flavor.

It makes an excellent breakfast. Grill a slice of this bread and enjoy it with some butter or nutella. Or maybe make french toast with it and serve with some honey drizzled over it. Cake for breakfast is always a good idea ;).

I love the crispy cinnamon sugar crust that forms on the top of the bread after baking. The buttery soft snickerdoodle bread is quick and delicious!
