Cinnamon Steusel Bread

This past Wednesday was "Administrative Professional's Day"! It was a fantastic time to celebrate those fabulous assistants, secretaries, and receptionists. I baked a delicious and very moist banana rum cake for our office. That delicious cake can easily be made into a bread. One of the reasons I love baking cakes and breads is because they're so versatile. I love to combine new flavors and levels of sweetness.

My mom used to make a cake version of this delightful cinnamon streusel bread you could hardly keep me out of it. And as always, altering ingredients can lower the fat and calorie content.


CINNAMON STREUSEL BREAD

3 c. baking mix
1/2 c. sugar
1/3 c. flour
1 c. milk
1 egg

STREUSEL:

1/3 c. brown sugar
1 1/2 tbsp. flour
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 tbsp. cold butter
2/3 c. chopped nuts (optional)

Mix the streusel ingredients together until it becomes crumbly. Set aside. Combine baking mix, sugar, flour, milk, and egg. Beat until mixed. Spread half of the batter into greased loaf pan, 9 x 5 x 3 inch. Sprinkle the streusel mixture on top. Place remaining half of batter in pan, spreading evenly. Bake at 350 degrees for 55 minutes or until wooden pick comes out clean. Cool on wire rack before slicing.
