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
