Cinnamon Walnut Bread

img_0740Fall is in the air here and Christmas not far behind it! We have finally gotten settled in our new house so I finally have time to bake again. I haven’t been able to do as much fall baking this year with our move, but I did manage to bake one loaf of pumpkin bread so far. I wanted to try something a bit different this time around and I thought a cinnamon bread would be quite good!

img_0738This recipe is really good. It has a great cinnamon to bread ratio and I love the addition of the nuts. I used walnuts because that’s what I had on hand, but I think pecans would be great as well!
