Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 1.5 poun loaf pan.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine sugar, flour, baking powder and salt.
Beat in eggs, milk and oil until just moist.
In a separate bowl, combine cinnamon and sugar.
Pour half of bread batter in loaf pan. Top with half of cinnamon sugar mixture. Swirl in using a knife or a spatula.
Pour remaining mixture on top (pan should only be ¾ full), top with remaining cinnamon sugar and swirl with a knife or spatula.
Bake 1 hour or until a toothpick entered into the center comes out clean. Allow to cool 10 minutes before removing from loaf pan.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine butter, powdered sugar, vanilla and milk. Drizzle over bread.
Vegetable Oil - Makes the bread incredibly moist. Substitute with canola oil, melted butter or melted coconut oil.
Butter - Salted or unsalted.
Powdered Sugar - Also known as confectioner's sugar, it sweetens the icing while maintaining a smooth consistency. To make powdered sugar, pulse granulated sugar in a food processor until super fine and fluffy.
Milk - Use whatever you have on hand. You can add as little or much as you want to achieve the consistency you desire.
How to Store Quick Bread
Room Temperature - Store quick bread covered in saran wrap for up to 5 days.
Refrigerate – Up to 1 week in an airtight container.
Freeze - Wrap them tightly in heavy foil, saran wrap or place them in freezer bags (I like to do at least 2 to prevent freezer odors from seeping in), and freeze for up to 3 months. Bring to room temperature to serve. Glaze doesn't freeze well, so glaze just before serving.
Large Loaves – Don’t want 6 miniature loaves? You can also make this Sweet Bread recipe in 2 – 1 pound loaf pans or cut the recipe in half for just 1 loaf pan and bake 50 minutes or until it passes the toothpick test.
Make Muffins – If you prefer to make them into muffins, just grease miniature muffin tins and fill each to 2/3 full. Bake 12 minutes.
Make it Ornate – Alternatively, you can also bake it in an ornate loaf pan with the same minimal effort!
