Years ago when I was traveling with family, I had my first sampling of Amish Cinnamon Bread. To say it was amazing would be an understatement. It was a small bakery in Wisconsin that offered this scrumptious bread and I was hooked from the very first bite. At the time I wasn’t a food blogger, so I didn’t give it a second thought to how it was actually made. Ready for a great bread recipe? Here we go.

Easy to Make Amish Bread

Apparently, when the Amish make bread, it’s a looooonnng process. We are talking days to make. I don’t know about you, but I don’t have that kind of time on my hands. Not for bread at least!

This recipe takes like 20 minutes to prepare and then you can get other things done around the house while it bakes for 45 minutes. This sounded much better than waiting days for bread yeast to rise.

I’m happy to say that this bread is amazing! You can make it in a loaf (the recipe actually makes 2 loaves!) or muffins – whichever way you’d like. Either way, you won’t be disappointed. I promise.
