Amish Cinnamon Flop Bread

Easy and delicious recipe for a cinnamon brown sugar bread that's made even more decadent by the addition of cream cheese!


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsps. baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp. melted butter
  • 1 cup milk
  • 8 oz. cream cheese optional
  • caramel ice cream topping optional
  • flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and butter for topping


1. Sift sugar, flour and baking powder together.

2. Add melted butter and milk to sifted ingredients. Stir together until well blended

3. Divide mixture between two 9″ well greased cake pans. (Batter will be very thick.)

4. Dust tops with flour, then sprinkle with brown sugar, then cinnamon.

5. Push chunks of butter into the dough. (This makes holes and later gets gooey as it bakes.)

6. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

OPTIONAL: Instead of butter, push chunks of cream cheese into the batter and drizzle caramel ice cream topping over the top before baking.
