For the loaf:
1/4cupunsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
1/4cupcoconut oil, melted and slightly cooled
For the cinnamon sugar ribbon:
Preheat oven to 350 F and grease a 9x5" loaf pan.
In a small bowl, stir together the ingredients for the cinnamon sugar ribbon and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the melted butter, melted coconut oil, egg, brown sugar, and vanilla extract. Then whisk in the buttermilk.
Add the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and baking soda and lightly whisk into the wet ingredients, until just combined.
Pour 1/3 of the batter into the prepared loaf pan, spreading it evenly across the bottom with a spoon or a spatula. Sprinkle 1/3 of the cinnamon sugar over the batter. Pour another 1/3 of the batter into the loaf pan, spreading it evenly, and again sprinkling 1/3 of cinnamon sugar over top. Spread the remaining batter on top, and finish with the remaining sprinkle of cinnamon sugar.
Bake for 45-50 minutes until lightly browned on top, and a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean. Let cool, then turn loaf out of pan and serve.
Make your own buttermilk by adding 2 tablespoons of lemon juice into a 1 cup measuring cup, then filling the rest of the measuring cup with milk. Stir and then let it stand for 10 mins before using.
