  • tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon


  1. Assemble ingredients.
  2. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease or spray 9”x5x3” loaf pan with cooking spray. Pan may be lined with tin foil and greased/sprayed for easy clean-up.
