Add the baking soda, vanilla, salt and cinnamon, and whisk to blend. Lastly, add the flour and mix. A mixer is not required and lumps are okay.

Pour the batter into your greased loaf pan and sprinkle lightly with cinnamon.

Bake for 55 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let the bread cool in the loaf pan for at least 15 minutes prior to removing it from the loaf pan.

Slice and enjoy every bite!
