1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup buttermilk
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and prepare a 9×5 loaf pan by spraying with non-stick cooking spray.
In a large bowl, mix oil, butter, and sugars until well combined. Stir in eggs and vanilla until smooth.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Alternate adding flour mixture and buttermilk to the egg mixture, starting and ending with the flour.
In another small bowl, combine cinnamon and sugar, then add half the batter to the loaf pan and sprinkle with half the cinnamon sugar mixture.
Repeat with the remaining batter and cinnamon sugar. Use a butter knife to swirl the cinnamon sugar throughout the bread.
Bake for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Once bread has cooled slightly, remove from loaf pan and pour melted butter over the top. Let it soak in and cool before slicing.
