For the quick bread

  • 1 stick butter softened (I use salted)
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 teas vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour all purpose
  • ¾ teas salt
  • 1 teas ground cinnamon
  • 1 teas baking soda
  • 1 teas baking powder

For the streusel topping

  • 5 tbsp butter cold
  • cup brown sugar packed
  • ½ cup flour all purpose
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon

For the icing

  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 teas milk


Quick Bread Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350° F
  • With an electric mixer, cream the softened butter and ¾ cup sugar together until smooth
  • Add the egg and mix well
  • Add the milk, sour cream, and vanilla and mix together
  • Sift the flour, salt, cinnamon, baking soda and baking powder together
  • Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until combined and smooth

For the streusel

  • With a pastry cutter, cut the cold butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and flour together until it is crumbly. The crumbs should be about the size of the pea or a little larger. They will not be uniform in size
  • Add half of the batter to a prepared pan. Add 3-4 tablespoons of the streusel mixture on top.
  • Spoon the rest of the batter in top and even it out
  • With a knife, swirl the batter together just a little bit (optional)
  • Add the rest of the streusel topping evenly over the top of the batter
  • Bake uncovered in the preheated oven for 55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean (could be longer depending on the oven)
  • Whisk together the powdered sugar and milk until it is smooth. Only add 2 teaspoons at first to see if it's the right consistency. If it is still dry or lumpy add ½ teaspoon at a time until it is smooth
  • Let the bread cool for 10 minutes then with a knife, loosen it from the edges. After it is completely cool, carefully remove it from the pan and put it on a serving dish
  • Drizzle the icing over the top. Serve and enjoy!
