4 c. flour
2 t. baking soda
2 t. baking powder
1 t. salt
1 c. shortening
2 c. sugar
4 eggs
2 t. vanilla
2 c. buttermilk
2 T. sugar

Sift flour, baking powder, soda and salt. Set aside. Combine shortening and sugar. Mix together, then add eggs and vanilla. Stir in sifted flour mixture and buttermilk, (add in thirds, 1/3 flour and 1/3 buttermilk; mix in then add next third). Mix until smooth. Pour 1/3 into a greased loaf pan. Mix together cinnamon and sugar. Swirl 1/3 of sugar mixture into each layer or batter with a knife. Repeat. Don't swirl cinnamon into the top layer of batter.
