The funny thing about today’s recipe is it’s a bread called Amish Cinnamon Flop Bread.
Apparently the Amish have a different definition of the word flop, because none of the Englishers in this household considered this bread to be a flop.
Amish Cinnamon Flop Bread
Amish Cinnamon Flop Bread Ingredients:
1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 Tbsp melted butter
1 cup milk
brown sugar, cinnamon and butter for topping
Amish Cinnamon Flop Bread Directions:
Sift sugar, flour and baking powder together. Add melted butter and milk. Stir together until well blended.
Divide mixture between two 9″ well greased cake pans. The batter is very thick and you will wonder how you’re going to use this to cover the bottoms of two pans. But trust me, it will happen.
Sprinkle tops with flour, then brown sugar, then cinnamon.
Push chunks of butter into the dough. (This makes holes and later gets gooey as it bakes.)
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
Cut into wedges and serve warm.

The beauty of this Amish Cinnamon Flop Bread is that you can tweak the recipe a bit if you’d like. I recently made this and added cream cheese and caramel to it.
(Just push little blobs of cream cheese into the dough after it’s in the pan, and then drizzle a mess of caramel over the whole thing.)
Results? Well, maybe a little different than the Amish intended…but it was absolutely pure heaven!
However you choose to make this recipe, enjoy your Amish Cinnamon Flop Bread. I’m sure you will find it is definitely not a flop!
