Seriously one of the easiest bread recipes you’ll ever try! This Amish Bread is super soft, fluffy, and covered in an irresistible cinnamon sugar mixture! The secret to the fluffiness is the buttermilk in the dough!

Amish Friendship Bread

A looong time ago a friend gave me a bag of mush and told me to follow the rules – to knead it, 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, quite frankly, who has time for all of 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. 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 (adapted 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.

How to make Amish Bread:

This recipe is simple because it only requires a handful of ingredients, most of which you definitely have around if you occasionally bake. Plus, there’s only about 10-15 minutes of preparation before you throw the bread in the oven! I don’t know about you, but that’s my kind of recipe.

  1. Mix sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. In another bowl, or in a stand mixer, cream together butter, sugar, and eggs and then add the buttermilk, flour, and baking soda.
  3. Divide 1/2 of the batter into two greased loaf pans (in other words, 1/4 of the mix in each pan). Sprinkle some of the cinnamon sugar mixture on top of the batter in each pan, reserving about 1/4 to sprinkle on the tops.
  4. Evenly add remaining batter to your two pans, and then sprinkle on the rest of your cinnamon topping.
  5. Bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until baked through. Cool for 20 minutes before removing from the pan. Enjoy!

Take a good look at that cinnamon sugar layer in the center of the bread! I’m already drooling just thinking about the soft, fluffy inside and crispy, cinnamon-y outside. If this bread doesn’t help you make instant friends, I don’t know what will! 😉

    I WAS WONDERING IF YOU COULD TELL ME I MADE THIS BREAD VERY TASTY. I REALLY LIKE IT. BUT WHEN I SLICED IT IT ALL FELL APART INTO CRUMBS. COULD YOU TELL ME WHAT I DID WRONG
