Steps to Bake the Perfect Amish Cinnamon Bread:

Start by creaming together the softened butter, 2 cups sugar, and eggs in a mixing bowl until smooth.

Progressively add in the milk, followed by the flour and baking soda. Mix until you achieve a uniform batter.

Distribute approximately half of the batter among two greased loaf pans, filling each about a quarter full.

In a separate bowl, combine the 2/3 cups sugar and cinnamon to prepare the cinnamon-sugar mixture.

Generously sprinkle about three-quarters of this mixture over the batter in both pans.

Pour the remaining batter into the pans, and garnish with the remaining cinnamon-sugar mixture.

Introduce a swirling pattern using a knife, ensuring the cinnamon-sugar mixture gets intricately marbled with the batter.

Bake in a preheated oven at 350°F for around 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Allow the bread to settle and cool in the pans for about 20 minutes before transferring them out.

Yields: 2 wholesome loaves.

Indulge in this delectable bread and watch as it becomes an instant favorite among your family and friends.
