Cinnamon Coffee Cake

This recipe is not an original but it has served well as a "welcome to the neighborhood" gift with the recipients usually asking for a second one. Since it's a quick bread, it's easy to make. You could become the most popular person on your block!

2 c. flour
1 ¼ c. sugar divided (1 c. & ¼ c.)
3 tsp. baking powder
3 ½ tsp cinnamon divided (1 ½ tsp. & 2 tsp.)
1 ¼ tsp. salt
2 eggs
1 c. buttermilk (I use 1 c. milk with 1 tbl. Lemon juice or vinegar)
1/3 c. oil
2 tsp. vanilla
3 tbl. butter (melted)

Combine flour, 1 c. sugar, baking powder, 1 ½ tsp. cinnamon and salt. In another bowl, combine eggs, milk, oil and vanilla. Combine with dry ingredients. Pour ½ of the batter into a 9x5x3 loaf pan (don’t use 8x3 or it will overflow). In a small bowl, combine 2 tsp. cinnamon, ¼ c. sugar and butter. Drizzle half of cinnamon mixture over batter and swirl. Pour in remaining batter and drizzle remaining half of cinnamon mixture on top and swirl. Bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes then remove bread to a rack.
