Maple Cinnamon Quick Bread

Cinnamon bread is delicious, especially with the addition of maple.   Quick bread baked with maple and cinnamon on a drying rack

Alright, look. Sometimes, not always, just every now and then, I see a recipe and I think “oh, that will smell amazing.” And then I make the recipe.

Not because I’m hungry, not because it’s dinner time, not because I have guests coming over who might appreciate delicious baked goods. No. I make recipes because they will probably make my house smell like Fall blew up in it.

Why, yes. I do know that they sell candles for just this reason. In fact, I even own some of those candles!

You won’t need to light a candle all day to get your house smelling yummy with this quick bread!

Real food just smells more, you know, real. Besides, even if I’m not hungry when I start mixing up the ingredients, by the time the smells start kicking in, you know my tummy will be grumbling.

In conclusion, I am not weird, Fall smells amazing, candles are over-rated, and you should go bake some of this bread.

The end.
