Bake up a cinn-sational treat with our recipe for Cinnamon Loaves. This cake-like bread recipe starts off with a box of cake mix, which makes it even easier to bake this cinnamon-flavored dessert bread whenever you get the cravings!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (15-1/4-ounce) package yellow cake mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons ground cinnamon

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat 2 (8- x 4-inch) loaf pans with cooking spray and dust with flour.
  2. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat cake mix, eggs, oil, water, and vanilla 3 minutes. Pour half the batter evenly into loaf pans.
  3. In a small bowl, stir together sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle half the mixture evenly over batter in loaf pans. Distribute remaining batter evenly between loaf pans and sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture. Gently swirl with a knife.
  4. Bake 45 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks. 



  • Follow these directions to make five mini gift loaves: Pour half the batter evenly into five greased and floured 3-1/4- x 5-3/4-inch disposable loaf pans. Sprinkle evenly with half of sugar mixture. Pour remaining batter into pans; sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture. Gently swirl with a knife. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  • These can be stored in the freezer.

Quick and delicious. Husband loves these.

Call it cake or call it bread, this is delicious. (My Aunt Maxine always called hybrids like this tea loaves.) For a yummy reduced fat version, eliminate 1/2 cup of oil 1/4 cup of water substitute in 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce. Warm, cold, or room temperature - hard to beat with a fresh cup of coffee or tea.

This looks like the perfect kind of recipe to make on a Saturday afternoon to eat for breakfast the next day. Yum!

Yes, please! This is definitely more of a cake than a bread, but that's a-ok with me. I loved every bite. It's perfect with a cup of hot tea in the morning!

This is really yummy! Gone as soon as it is made!!!

Why can you not post pictures on some of your recipes? I like to see what I'm making....and I like to pin recipes onto Pinterest but usually don't if there is no picture.....

Hello! We apologize for the inconvenience; we're working on putting up photos for all of our recipes as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience, and enjoy!

i followed the recipe as written and received numerous complements

This recipe sounds easy and delicious, and I like the idea of making 5 little gifts, but how do you adapt it now that cake mixes have been changed from 18.25 ounces to 15.25 ounces?

Cut all ingredients by 1/6.

U measure with a measuring cup.

I just add extra flour to the cake mix.
