Cinnamon is a wonderful flavour!! It is also full of health benefits!
Isn’t it wonderful that it can make foods taste so delicious and be healthy for us.
You can take this cinnamon loaf to anyone house, and they would never know that is was gluten free. I remember the first time I took this over to a friend’s house. She couldn’t believe that I could eat it, because she thought that it was a regular loaf. She was pleasantly surprised!
