Cinnamon Swirl Bread

What you need: 

1 cup nondairy milk (I use soymilk)
2 teaspoons vinegar
1 1/3 cups sugar, divided
1/4 cup vegan margarine (I use Earth Balance)
1 egg replacer (I use 1 tablespoon ground flax + 3 tablespoons water)
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x5" loaf pan. In a measuring cup, combine milk and vinegar. Set aside and allow to curdle.
2. In a large mixing bowl, beat together 1 cup sugar, margarine, and egg replacer. In another bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
3. Add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture alternately with the curdled nondairy milk. In a small bowl, combine the cinnamon and remaining 1/3 cup sugar.
4. Pour 1/3 the batter into prepared pan. Sprinkle 1/3 the cinnamon sugar on top of batter. Repeat layers twice. Bake 45-50 minutes, until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pan for 10 minutes. Remove from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
Honestly, this is one of the best recipes I've ever tried. It's like those cinnamon bread/cake like things I made from a box in the pre-vegan days. I took this to a gathering of 100% non-vegans. Everyone loved it, from the little kids, to the adults. You must try this recipe at least once. You won't be disappointed.
Variation for a healthier version: Use whole wheat pastry flour instead of all-purpose. Reduce the sugar of the dough to 1/2 to 2/3 cup. Use 1/2 margarine and 1/2 applesauce.

Good recipe! I was feeling lazy, so didn't make the layers, just mixed in the cinnamon and sugar with the batter, and it came out yummy still.  Thanks!

Don't do that for yeast breads--cinnamon kills yeast.  ;)

Made as written, w/ a little applesauce as the egg replacer. We all really liked it. My husband said it needed a cream cheese drizzle, and asked for it again to test his thoery. A good gift bread, I think.


This is soooooooo good!  I agree that it's like one of those snackin' cakes from wayback.  I did it with a glaze as suggested above which made it seem kind of cinnamon bun-ny and it was sticky and delicious!

2 thumbs up!  :)>>>


OMG this was great. I made it with a mix of whole wheat flour and whole wheat pastry flour. I also made the greaaat crumb topping. I loved it and will make it again soon.



I'll surely make this again. I used half margarine, half apple sauce, and flax seed for egg replacer. 

It's freaking delicious.


This was really good.  I added cinnamon to the batter, as previous posters suggested, and made a crumb topping and cinnamon glaze for the top.  It didn't really swirl that much, so next time, I'll run a butter knife through it to move the ribbons of cinnamon sugar around.  The bread was really tasty though, and didn't last long. 


qwerty20: this is a vegan website, all of the recipes here at Vegweb will be just fine for your friend. Good luck!


Are you a vegetarian?
One of my friends is a vegataian, and her
birthday is coming, I want to make a dish for her.

I hope someone will help me out.
