Cinnamon Sugar Bread

Look! I managed to clear off enough of my counter to start back to cooking and baking! :D

Not my recipe, but I see myself adapting this soon to be a little less heavy on the sugar and to spice it up. But trust me this stuff is AMAZING as written. It's super easy to prep, so it's a great treat (just ignore the mound of sugar you pour in).
Recipe from  A Whisk and A Prayer.

1 1/3 cup white sugar, separated
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 cup milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Lightly grease a 9" loaf pan.
In a large mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt, and 1 cup of the sugar. Add to it the egg, milk, and oil. Mix with a whisk until combined. It's okay to have some lumps.
In a small bowl mix the remaining 1/3 cup sugar and cinnamon.
Pour half the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle most of the cinnamon-sugar mix on the batter. Top with the rest of the batter. Sprinkle the remaining cinnamon-sugar mix on top (a tablespoon or so will do).
Bake for 45 to 50 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to finish cooling.

Original recipe calls to wrap in foil after it's cool and eat it the next day. 
We didn't even wait for it to cool before cutting and eating.
Obviously since I didn't remember to take a picture till half the loaf was gone.
