Amish Bread

Homemade Amish Bread - seriously one of the easiest bread recipes you'll ever try! Super soft and fluffy bread covered in an irresistible cinnamon sugar mixture! The secret to the fluffiness is the buttermilk in the dough!

A looong time ago a friend gave me a bag of mush and told me to follow the rules, to knead it, and add things to it, and speak nice things to it, and one day it would turn into a glorious loaf of Amish Bread. I did those things, and 5 years later (ok, a few days!), it indeed, was a glorious loaf of Amish bread! And it even left me with more mush to give away to my friends. But, who has time for all that? “Not I” says the cat!

For many years I thought If I wanted to taste that delicious bread again, I would need to be given a bag of mush from someone. Then Pinterest was born and anything became possible (I know full well that it was possible before Pinterest, but I like to pretend that life didn’t exist before the days of pinning). And so today, I bring you this divine Amish Bread (from Red Fly Creations), that has been tried and proven true for your kitchen. No bag of mush required!! I think the buttermilk really helps make this bread super soft and fluffy.

It was hard just to snap one shot of this bread and call it good. That soft inside with crispy cinnamon and sugar outside had to be showcased in a few pictures. 😉
