Dutch Cinnamon Bread (GF, DF, Soy-free)


This is a great recipe to make on special occasions or to bring to a brunch.  It's a flavorful, sweet and sensuous dessert bread.  Even though it isn't my Grandmother's recipe, it always reminds me of her, and how I never wanted to leave her table.



1 egg

1 cup sugar 

1/4 cup sunflower, safflower or similar oil (a neutral oil is best, although coconut oil would work and lend a little coconut flavor)

1 cup GF teff flour

1 cup GF buckwheat flour

1/2 tsp. salt

1 tsp baking soda

1 can Thai Kitchen Coconut Milk (you need the can to include the coconut fat)

Topping / Swirling Ingredients

1/2 cup sugar

1 T. cinnamon

(in a prep bowl, mix these together and set aside)

Put it Together

BREAD - post swirling

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees

Grease a 9x5x3 loaf pan (use the same oil you are baking with).

In a food processor or mixer, beat the egg, sugar and oil together until creamy.  In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, salt and soda.  Remove the coconut milk from the can into a bowl, and beat the fat into the rest of the milk.  Add the flour mixture to the egg/sugar mixture alternatively with the coconut milk until blended.  Pour 1/2 of the batter into the loaf pan.  Sprinkle the top with 1/2 of the cinnamon sugar mixture.  Add the rest of the batter to the pan, then sprinkle the remaining cinnamon sugar over the top.  Using a knife, swirl the sugar into the bread in a figure eight type pattern.

Bake 1 hour.  Cool for at least 30 min. then remove from the pan.  Slice and serve.  This bread freezes really well.
