Who has been watching The Great British Bake Off this year? I watch it every year religiously and have done for years! I always joke to my husband that I would love to apply for the show one day but I’m petrified of the thought of being on National TV. So for now I will continue to create recipes, cook and bake in my own kitchen.

This year I had planned to cook along with Bake Off every week but approaching the third week of the show I haven’t had the chance. With the kids returning to school and starting nursery as well as some health issues, I haven’t been able to get in the kitchen to do any extra baking. This week however, I’ve managed to drag myself up and into the kitchen to bake something a little sweet for Bread Week.

I grew up watching my Mum and Nene baking and my favourite type of bread to bake is Helliml a Turkish bread (also known as Halloumi Bread), I have a recipe here. However, for my Bake Off Bread Week bake I wanted to try something a little different. I wanted to try a sweet bread because even I love a treat once in a while. Eating healthy all day and everyday doesn’t make me feel the slightest bit bad for enjoying homemade sweet bakes because I know thats all it is, a treat.

I love cinnamon bread, it is perfect with a cup of tea or my favourite camomile tea. It isn’t too sweet but just the right amount of cinnamon to warm your senses and relax you into a state of mindful eating, enjoying every bite. This cinnamon loaf is so easy to make, it is yeast-free and dairy-free and is a great recipe to show your family how good your baking skills really are.

So here is my easy Cinnamon Loaf Afternoon Treat recipe.

Cinnamon Bread

  • 200 g Plain Flour sieved
  • 200 g Caster Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tbsp Organic Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Fine Sea Salt
  • 200 ml Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 4 tbsp Vegetable Oil
  • 2 Large Eggs whisked
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract


  • 1 tbsp Caster Sugar
  • 1 tsp Organic Ground Cinnamon

Icing To Decorate

  • 50 g Icing Sugar
  • A few teaspoons of cold water


For The Cinnamon Bread

  1. Preheat fan oven to 180 degrees

  2. Line a bread pan with parchment paper so that it over laps the outside of the pan so that its easy to pull the loaf out when cooled

  3. In a mixing bowl add all the dry ingredients - flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and cinnamon 

  4. In another bowl add the wet ingredients - vegetable oil, eggs, almond milk and vanilla extract

  5. Add the wet mix to the dry mix slowly while using a wooden spoon to mix the mixture to create a smooth consistency with no lumps 

  6. Pour the mix into the lined bread pan and level the top

  7. Mix the 1 tbsp of caster sugar with the 1 tsp of cinnamon and dust over the top (after cooking, the excess will fall off as you pull the bread out of the pan) this will create a little texture on top of the loaf

  8. Bake in the centre of the oven for around 50 minutes 

  9. Leave to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before removing it using the parchment paper

  10. Leave to cool on a cooling rack for a further 10 -15 minutes 

For The Icing

  1. Meanwhile mix together the icing sugar with a little water (add the water slowly so that you can control the consistency so it isn't too watery)

  2. Leaving the bread on the cooling rack using a teaspoon drizzle over the icing up and down, left and right, it doesn't need to be perfect

  3. Serve straight away or cut up and wrap up in air tight paperbags, clingfilm or foil and store at room temperature
