I have very fond memories of childhood on my grandma’s farm.
She would always be baking something, and I was her official taste-tester. I loved it when she made me her famous Amish Cinnamon Bread. There’s nothing like fresh cream butter smeared across a piping hot slice of homemadeCinnamon bread. Grandma would sip on her coffee as she ate hers and I’d sip on my hot chocolate. Such a wonderful memory! Food tends to do that to people, help them reminisce about days gone by.Did your grandma or mother have a special recipe that she made with you? Mine would definitely be this amish cinnamon bread.You’re going to love making this!
