Country Swirl Cinnamon Bread

I just made this for the first time today to take to the Church breakfast tomorrow, since the hubby has to work :( I made him a loaf also and tried a pinch of it.  This stuff is seriously amazing!

2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup unsalted butter at room temp
11/3 cups sugar
1 egg
1 cup buttermilk (I didnt have buttermilk so I used whole milk and it was fine)
1 tb cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350
Grease and 8x4x2 loaf pan
Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt
In a large bowl cream butter and 1 cup of sugar
Add egg and blend well
Add dry ingredients alternating with milk
Mix well after each addition
Mix last 1/3 cup of sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl
Pour 1/3 of batter in pan
Sprinkle with 1/3 cinnamon sugar mix
Repeat this step two more times
Bake for 45-50 minutes

A few notes
* This batter is very thick
*Make sure to check the dough to be certain it is done before removing from pan.  I had one loaf that was finished in 50 minutes and another that took about an hour.
