  1. I used this recipe as a guide to make a gluten free Cinnamon Swirl Bread and it turned out perfectly! Thank you so much for this simple, easy recipe. All I had to do was replace the flour with gluten free all purpose flour (I used Better Batter), and the texture is indistinguishable from the glutinous version. Bravo!

    1. I’m so glad it turned out well, my stepdad is gluten free so I’ll have to make this for him with your adaptations next time he visits! ~Melissa

      1. update: I added an extra 1/8 tsp baking powder the second time I made it and it added some nice height, as GF flour can get gummy. 🙂

  2. I may just be trying your cinnamon bread today. Have you been over to the Isle of M an yet? There’s also Northern Scotland, ie Inverness, or the Isle of Skye that is also not far from Inverness. I envy you being over there.

    1. We went as far and Loch Ness and Inverness over Christmas break, we’ve not been to Isle of M, I’ll look at that, thank you! ~Melissa

  3. Am excited to try your bread!
    For your Easter break, is Ireland too far away?
    My husband and I visited there a couple of years ago and absolutely loved it!
    We mostly stayed in Galway, but were in a couple of other southern towns as well.
    Good luck!

    1. Ireland is definitely not too far-it’s one of the places we’ve been looking at a lot. We visited Belfast and Dublin in July but really would like to get back into the more rural areas, I’ll look at Galway-thank you! ~Melissa
