Cinnamon Walnut Bread

I love quick bread. LOVE LOVE LOVE. There is just something satisfying about the whole experience. I have made a few in the past and continue to be obsessed with the whole experience. When this recipe popped up in my google reader I squealed! I mean, c'mon- what's better than a quick bread recipe where you already have all of the ingredients on hand?!

I made this a week or so ago and John and I happily ate it for breakfast all week. As far as quick bread goes this one is a bit "healthier" and could be made even better with wheat flour. This bread was just awesome. I loved the spice from the cinnamon and the texture of the nuts. Perfect for fall!

If you're into quick bread, here are a few other quick breads I have made over the years.
Garlic Cheddar Quick Bread
Banana Chocolate Chip Bread
Cinnamon Swirl Bread
Buttermilk Quick Bread

2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup milk
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup walnuts
1 beaten egg
1/2 tsp salt
In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. Add the beaten egg and milk and stir. Fold in the walnuts. Pour into greased loaf pan and bake at 350 for about forty minutes, or until golden (stick a knife in the center to make sure it comes out clean). Let cool and slice.
