Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon plus 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 cup reduced-fat plain yogurt
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and salt. In a small bowl, whisk egg, yogurt, oil and vanilla. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and remaining cinnamon.
  2. Spoon a third of the batter into an 8x4-in. loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Top with a third of the brown sugar mixture. Repeat layers twice. Cut through batter with a knife to swirl the brown sugar mixture.
