I am not going to lie: I normally stray away from making homemade bread because I hate the yeast aspect of bread-making ! Making loaves of bread surely has its set of challenges, and that’s why I was thrilled when I whipped-up this no-yeast Cinnamon Loaf. Here’s how you can make one of your very own!

Cinnamon Bread Tips
Start With the Dry Ingredients
As outlined in the recipe below, it’s best that you start by whisking the dry ingredients together before adding anything else.
For most recipes, I like to mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients in separate bowls, but for my cinnamon bread, that’s not necessary. You can start with the dry ingredients in one bowl then add the wet ingredients after whisking them together. (Psst: this can save you time and cleaning dishes!)
Be Sure to Layer the Batter and the Cinnamon
The best part about this recipe is the bursts of cinnamon flavor you get in every bite! To evenly distribute the cinnamon sugar, be sure you layer the batter and the cinnamon sugar accordingly. I explain how in the recipe card below!
Can I Freeze Cinnamon Bread?
Yes, this loaf can be frozen, if desired. To freeze, wrap the loaf or slices of it in plastic, followed by aluminum foil. It can then be frozen for up to three months.
To serve the loaf from the freezer, allow it to come to room temperature by laying it on your counter. Then, bake it in a 300 degree oven for about 10 minutes.
Are There Any Ingredient Substitutes?
Absolutely! You can use your choice of milk rather than cow’s milk for this recipe. For most milk types, it’s a 1:1 ratio, so you don’t need to change the measurements.
What Consistency Does Cinnamon Bread Have?
Because this particular bread is a no-yeast recipe, it’s lighter and more cake-like than your average loaf. As mentioned before, it pairs great with coffee and tea, and tastes great with toppings like hazelnut spread or condensed milk.

- 1 cup milk
- 1 1/2 tsps vanilla extract

- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and line a standard loaf pan with parchment paper. Allow the parchment paper to hang from the loaf pan and set aside.
- Next, add sugar, oil, eggs, milk and vanilla extract. Mix until a thick batter forms and all lumps are smoothed out.
- In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar and ground cinnamon.
- Pour 1/3 of the batter into your lined loaf pan, followed by 1/3 of the cinnamon mixture. Repeat the layering process with the remaining batter and cinnamon sugar, making sure that you finish with the cinnamon mixture.
- Bake for 40-43 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center of the loaf. Allow to rest in the loaf pan for about 5-10 minutes and then remove and set on a wire rack for further cooling.
