Teaching Cooking

I have taught basic cooking to my seven children and to classes of elementary children. When my youngest daughter wanted to learn, I found that taking the recipes and making them into a step-by-step format made it easier for her, so here is a blog to hopefully make cooking easier for the beginner.

Cinnamon Swirl Bread

      1 1/2 cups wheat flour
      1 cup sugar
      1 teaspoon baking soda
      1/2 teaspoon salt
      1 cup buttermilk
      1 egg
      1/4 cup oil
      1/2 cup brown sugar
      3 tsp cinnamon

Mix together flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt.
Mix buttermilk, egg and oil.  Stir it into the flour mixture just enough to moisten the flour.
Mix the brown sugar and cinnamon together.
Grease the bottom of a 9 x 5 bread loaf pan.
Pour half of the batter into the bottom of the pan.
Sprinkle half of the cinnamon sugar mixture on top.
Carefully pour the other half of the batter on top of this.
Sprinkle the other half of the cinnamon sugar mixture on top.
Use a clean knife and cut through the batter to swirl the cinnamon and sugar mixture through the batter.  Be careful not to mix it too much.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the top comes out clean.
Cool for 10 minutes in the pan and then remove it.  Put it on a wire rack to finish cooling.

If you want to cover it with a glaze, mix 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar and 1 1/2 teaspoons of milk together.  drizzle it over the loaf.

This recipe makes one loaf of quick bread.
