I wish I could say the idea had sparked me to create a recipe, but today I share with you someone else’s deliciously easy gluten free quick bread recipe.

Cinnamon Swirl Quick Bread Recipe submission from Brenda W. (Jules' notes in parenthesis)
- 2 cups (270 grams) gfJules® All Purpose Gluten Free Flour
- 1 Tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt (I cut to 1/2 tsp. with good results)
- 1 cup granulated sugar (I think this could be cut to 3/4 cup)
- 1 egg, slightly beaten (1 Tbs. aquafaba works well as a sub)
- 1 cup coconut milk beverage, not canned – (“or the kind from a cow,” says Brenda)
- 1/3 cup solid coconut oil or vegetable oil (I used Spectrum® Organic Coconut Oil)
Topping for center of bread:
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar (I used 1/4 cup sugar with good results)
- 1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon (I used 2 tsp. cinnamon with good results)
Preheat oven to 350° F (static) or 325° F (convection).
Oil and lightly flour with gfJules Flour a loaf pan (I recommend a 9×5 pan or 4 mini loaf pans).
Whisk dry ingredients together in a small bowl and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, combine sugar, oil and egg/sub.
Add dry ingredients to mixing bowl together with the milk, stirring just until smooth. The batter will be very thick and will become thicker as it sits, so work to get it into the pan quickly.
Fill prepared pan with half of the batter. Sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mixture over the batter until it is entirely covered. Try not to spread all the way to the outside edges if you want the "smile" effect on the bread.
Pour remaining batter on top, smooth with a rubber spatula. If desired, sprinkle with additional cinnamon-sugar to top the bread.
Bake in preheated oven for 50-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean.
Optional: Bake in 8 mini-pans, sized 3.28 x 2.5” for ~30 minutes.
