I am always looking for breads and desserts that do not contain raisins. I despise raisins! So I was very happy to find this recipe. Not only does it not contain raisins, but it requires no yeast! Another plus for me!

In a small bowl, combine 1/3 cup of the sugar, the nuts, and cinnamon; set aside. In a large bowl, combine the remaining 1 cup sugar, the flour, baking powder, and salt. In a medium bowl, beat egg with a fork. Stir in milk and oil. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy).
Pour half of the batter into a greased and floured 9x5x3-inch loaf pan. Sprinkle with half of the cinnamon mixture. Repeat with remaining batter and cinnamon mixture. Draw a wide rubber scraper down through batter and up in a circular motion to marble.
Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 45 to 50 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack. Wrap and store bread overnight before slicing.
