Ingredients

2 c
all-purpose flour (unbleached)
1 c
white sugar
2 tsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
baking soda
1 1/2 tsp
ground cinnamon
1 tsp
salt
1 c
buttermilk
1/4 c
vegetable oil
2
eggs
2 tsp
vanilla extract
1/4 c
pecans, chopped ( optional )

TOPPING / I DOUBLE THIS

3 Tbsp
sugar
1/2 tsp
cinnamon
2 tsp
butter, softened
1/4 c
chopped pecans ( optional )

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Grease one 9x5 inch loaf pan.
2In large mixing bowl add the first 10 ingredients, beat 3 minutes.
3Pour into prepared loaf pan. Smooth top.
4Combine 3 tablespoons white sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and butter, mixing until crumbly.
5Sprinkle topping over smoothed batter. Using knife, cut in a light swirling motion to give a marbled effect. (sprinkle top with 1/4 cup pecans.)

I usually double the cinnamon mixture.
6Bake for about 50 minutes. Test with toothpick. When inserted it should come out clean. Remove bread from pan to rack to cool.
7You can glaze with a simple confectioners' sugar, cream and vanilla mixture. I don't always...

It's also great with the addition of plumped up raisins.
