Cinnamon Swirl Bread

Don't even try to resist eating this all in one sitting, it is futile.

Cinnamon Swirl Bread

1/4 C. butter softened
1 C. sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
2 C. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 C. buttermilk (or 1 cup milk & 1 Tbsp. vinegar.  Let sit for 5 minutes)

Swirl topping
1/2 C. brown sugar
1/4 C. sugar
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 Tbsp. cinnamon

Mix well butter, sugar, egg and vanilla.  Mix dry ingredients in separate bowl.  Add to mixture alternately with buttermilk.  Mix swirl topping in small bowl.

Spread 1/3 batter in greased loaf pan, sprinkle on 1/3 of the topping.  Use a butter knife and drag it through the topping to create a swirling effect.  Repeat two more times ending with swirl topping on top of bread. 

Bake at 350 degrees 45 - 50 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out almost clean.  Cool in pan for 15 minutes, remove and continue to cool on rack.
