Preheat oven to 350 degrees F Grease and flour the bottom and 1/2 inch up the sides of a 9x5x3 in. loaf pan. In a small bowl combine 1/3 cup of the sugar, the nuts and cinnamon; set aside.

In a bowl beat eggs with a fork; stir in milk and oil. Add egg mixture to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy)

Pour half of the batter into prepared pan. Sprinkle with half of the cinnamon mixture. Repeat with remaining batter and cinnamon mixture. Draw a wide rubber scraper down through batter and up in a circular motion to marble. Bake 45 to 50 min or until a wooden toothick inserted near the center comes out clean.

Marble the cinnamon nut streusel throughout the batter so there is luscious crunch in every bite of bread.

I made this bread 2 days ago, and it was a big hit w/ my 3 teenagers. I ran out of regular flour (can you believe it?), so I subsituted 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour and 1 cup graham flour for the 2 cups all-purpose. It turned out great! I also increased the amounts of cinnamom sugar,and used hazelnuts. My daughter wants me to make more today, as she took the last 2 pieces to school today. It is great w/ peanut butter and additional cinnamon-sugar sprinkled on top! DELISH! ~ Lannimd ~
