Cinnamon Quick Bread

This bread is quick to make (hence the quick bread title.... lol) and it's delicious.  It also makes your house smell great!  Yay for fall baking!  It's good out of the oven, and later on, eaten with butter, or even toasted.  I used half whole wheat pastry flour for this, and this recipe uses buttermilk, which I love to use for baking (when it's available at my store here.... they've been out of it for weeks and I'm sad.  I want to make buttermilk biscuits, darn it!)
