Sunrise Cinnamon Loaves

18 1/2 oz. pkg. yellow cake mix with pudding
4 eggs
3/4 c. oil
3/4 c. water
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 c. sugar
3 Tblsp. ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350* Combine first 5 ingredients into a large mixing bowl.

Mix for about 3 minutes on high speed of an electric mixer; or until well mixed.

Pour half of batter into 2 greased & floured8"x4" loaf pans (or into mini loaf pans.)

In a small bowl combine sugar & cinnamon. Mix well.

If using mini loaf pans, sprinkle about a half a teaspoon or less of the cinnamon mixture over the batter. If using 2 loaf pans, pour half of the cinnamon mixture evenly over batter in each pan.

Using a butter knife, swirl cinnamon into batter. If using regular loaf pans, skip this step and pour remaining batter evenly over each cinnamon topped loaf pan.

Bake mini loaf pans for about 22-25 minutes; regular loaf pans for 35-40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Remove from pan(s) and cool on a wire rack. Yield: 2 regular size loaves, or 24 mini loaves (not all shown in photo.)

Thanks for this clever idea. It would be a fun Easter gift for the neighbors... Put the loaf in a clear cello bag and tie it up with bright spring ribbons.
