  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour hard white or soft white
  • 1 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk I used 3/4 cup sour cream mixed with 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup 1/2 stick melted butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 Tablespoons butter chilled & cut into small pieces
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon


  1. 1) Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease and flour a 9×5 loaf pan and set aside.
  2. 2) In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon, and salt. In a separate medium bowl, combine buttermilk, butter, eggs, maple syrup, and vanilla. Beat well. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
  3. 3) In yet another small bowl, work butter and cinnamon into pea-sized pieces. Gently fold cinnamon butter into the batter. Pour into prepared loaf pan.
  4. 4) Bake for 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean (I had to bake mine for an additional 10 minutes or so). Let cool in pan on a rack for 10 minutes. Turn bread out onto the rack and allow to cool. Serve with butter and a tall glass of cold milk.
