Hello there, friends. I can’t tell you how happy I am that March is here!

Cinnamon Sugar Cake:

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.

How to Make Cinnamon Sugar Cake:

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.

  • 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.

    Hi Michael,
    Found this recipe from Pinterest and made it yesterday for my daughter’s 5th birthday. I am not the best baker (although I do have a food blog, think dinner 🙂 !) and birthday cakes usually end in tears for me. Just ask my husband. But this one turned out amazing! So incredibly moist and such an easy recipe. My family absolutely loved it. My go to birthday cake recipe now. Thank you for sharing!!!
