How much cinnamon would you use if you only have regular Land O' Lakes Butter?

Hi Judy, you can substitute for the Cinnamon Sugar Butter Spread by melting ¼ cup butter and adding ¼ to ½ teaspoon cinnamon and a little sugar to taste. After you have mixed it together, proceed with the recipe as directed. Happy baking!

Hello - just sub the 1 cup of bananas with pumpkin or sweet potato. I've made pumpkin bread with sweet potatoes because pumpkin is so high priced now. One can also freeze bananas.
Just peal, wrap in wax paper, and put in a zip lock freezer bag. Also I freeze sweet potatoes in
small zip lock bags then put all of them in a large zip lock bag.
I did it with pumpkin pure and sweet potato pure and it turned out pretty good !!!
I've also modified it with canned pumpkin instead of banana, adding nutmeg as well, HUGE hit with everyone!
I have not made this yet but why not a recipe for pumpkin cinnamon bread

That is an excellent idea! Pumpkin and cinnamon go well together.
