Cinnamon Cake

The original name of this cake as I found it is Cinnamon Cinnabon cake, but it's not cinnabon-y enough to be classified as such, in my opinion, so to me it's just a cinnamon cake!
It was the yummiest the same day I made it - it was crunchy on top, but the next day the crunch was gone already.
But it's a tasty cake!


3 cups flour (I used wholewheat) + 2 tbsp separately
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tbs baking powder
1 1/2 cup milk
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 cup butter softened
1 cup brown sugar
2 tbs ground cinnamon


  • preheat oven to 180 degree C (350 degree F), and grease 2 8inch cake pans and line the bottoms with wax paper
  • in a mixer, blend 3 cups flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, milk eggs, vanilla and 1/4 cup butter.  Divide batter evenly between 2 cake pans
  • in another mixing bowl, beat 1 cup butter with brown sugar, 2 tbsp flour and cinnamon.  Beat until fully blended and fluffy (about 3 mins).  Using 2 tablespoons, drop blobs of butter mixture onto cake batter and then use a knife to swirl
  • bake for about 25-30 mins
Best munched on the day it's made!  I didn't have any on hand, but I think this would have been yummy with cream poured all over it. :D
