Hello there, friends. I can’t tell you how happy I am that March is here!
These past few days the birds have been singing, the snow’s been melting, and the sun’s been shining. In fact, when I was running some errands today, I opened the sunroof in my car. Granted it was only 36 degrees, but that’s kind of like a heat wave in these parts. And, we get to move our clocks ahead this weekend. I can’t wait!
Today we are making this Cinnamon Sugar Cake which is a super easy cake recipe!
I’m a little late with my post today, but I wanted to stop in and share a recipe for this delicious Cinnamon and Sugar Cake I just made.
My friend had it a few weeks ago at a local cafe and asked if I could get the recipe and make it. With a few more friends coming into town this weekend, I thought it would be the perfect excuse to whip it up.
I did have my mom get the recipe (Her friend is a cook at the cafe.), but after some research, I found out it was a Taste of Home recipe. So, thank you Taste of Home.
Need and Easy Cake Recipe?
This cake is insanely easy to make, and I can’t begin to describe how delicious it is. The actual cake is so moist it’s incredible. And the simplicity of the cinnamon and sugar is magical. It’s Cinnamon Toast Crunch in cake form, but 100 times better. Something like that. Honestly, If you’re ever in a pinch for a quick dessert. give this a try.
To dress it up, I used some washi tape and wood skewers to make a few little flags. I off-centered them on the cake. Simple, but still super cute.

Adapted from Taste of Home
Here's what you'll need:
1 package white cake mix
1 cup milk
1/2 cup sour cream
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
2 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
5 cups powdered sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon cinnamon-sugar
Let's get baking:
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the ingredients for the cake. Beat on low speed for 30 seconds, then increase to medium speed for 2 minutes. Transfer the batter into two greased and floured 9-inch round baking pans.
Bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for about 10 minutes. Remove from pans and place on wire racks to cool completely.
In a large bowl, cream the butter until light and fluffy - about five minutes. Add the powdered sugar, milk, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla extract. Beat until smooth. Then, assemble the cake by spreading the frosting between the layers, over the top, and on the sides. Sprinkle the top and sides with the cinnamon-sugar.
