Maple Cinnamon Quick Bread

Serves Makes 1 loaf, about 8 or 10 slices     adjust servings


For the bread

  • 1 stick of butter, divided
  • 2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon maple extract
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon

For the icing

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla (or try maple extract!)
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon salt, taste it


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Put half of the stick of butter into a small saucepan and turn the heat to medium. Stir the butter occasionally and continue to cook until it is nice and brown. Once it is aromatic, remove from heat immediately and set aside. Cut the other half of the stick of butter into small cubes, dump it into a small bowl and put it in the fridge.
  3. Sift or whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, buttermilk, eggs, vanilla, and maple extract. Slowly whisk in the browned butter.
  5. Combine the wet and dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
  6. Get the butter out of the fridge and add 1 tablespoon of cinnamon. Use a knife or pastry cutter to make small chunks, about the size of a pea. Fold into the batter.
  7. Pour into a greased 9x5 loaf pan.
  8. Bake for 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Don't overbake!
  9. Let it sit for about 15 minutes before icing.
  10. To make the icing, whisk together all ingredients. Add more sugar or cream to get it how you want it.
  11. Drizzle over the top of the bread or spread on individual slices.
