Cinnamon Bread

Hello everyone, I used to get cinnamon bread back home to make french toast with but I can't seem to find anything similar here. Does anyone know of a grocery store or even a bakery near Zurich that might have something similar? It is like a regular loaf of bread but with cinnamon swirled into it.

Re: Cinnamon Bread

Switzerland has many culinary delights to offer... Unfortunately cinnamon bread as we on t'other side o' the pond know it is not one of them.

But fear not, a little creativity solves the problem. Or craving in this case.

Get up early and head out to Wadenswil on the left side of the lake. Just at the Bahnhof you will find Cafe Brandli.

http://www.konditorei-braendli.ch/

There you will find the closest aproximation I have yet to discover, their Zimtbrotli. This is not a loaf of bread but rather a roll, studded with heavenly cinnamon bits.

Get there by 8 AM as the Zimtbrotli go fast. Or call and reserve a few.

Zimtbrotli is not to be confused with a Zimtschnecke pastry, by the way. Horse of an entirely different color.

Back home, slice the roll lengthwise, in three parts. Dunk in your favorite French Toast mixture (I am partial to adding the juice and peel of an orange), and voila, a taste of home.

Or, since you've already come out this far, just pack those Zimtbrotli in your Rucksack and continue on the S13 to explore the delights of hiking in the Ausserschwyz and Einsiedeln regions. The Zimtbrotli will sustain you for a good few hours' hike.


Or start baking. Which is easier, but perhaps not as much fun.



Forgive the lack of umlauts and accents, using the iPad and am too lazy to hunt for them.

Re: Cinnamon Bread

Maybe not the same but making cinnamon toast works with any bread.

Re: Cinnamon Bread

I was thinking the other day that I miss cinnamon bread with raisins. I think I might try to bake it myself one of these days.

Re: Cinnamon Bread

Oh it's definitely a good craving to have. Yeah I should definitely get into the habit of trying to make these kinds of things myself. Put in the effort, and a little personal touch, and the result will be all the more satisfying! Thanks for the suggestions though everybody!
