I have very fond memories of childhood on my grandma’s farm.
She would always be baking something, and I was her official taste-tester. I loved it when she made me her famous Amish Cinnamon Bread. There’s nothing like fresh cream butter smeared across a piping hot slice of homemade Cinnamon bread. Grandma would sip on her coffee as she ate hers and I’d sip on my hot chocolate. Such a wonderful memory! Food tends to do that to people, help them reminisce about days gone by.
Did your grandma or mother have a special recipe that she made with you? Mine would definitely be this amish cinnamon bread.

This is one of the most scrumptious cinnamon bread recipes that I’ve ever come across and it’s super easy to make. I like to make up a bunch of loaves and wrap them in holiday paper. I’ll then tie some ribbons around them and take them to different people in my neighborhood. Giving food as a gift is a wonderful idea that many people enjoy. One year, I made this bread and took it to my local nursing home to give to the residents.
