Is there any kind of cake better than a warm vanilla cake with a bite full of cinnamon and sugar? I think not. Well except maybe a chocolate cake…but this Cinnamon Swirl Cake is a close first place contender.
Today was a cake baking kind of day and I embraced it. I’m trapped inside in minus 30 degree weather, and it’s days like this when my oven calls to me for cake. But really, I’m not sure there’s any day that wouldn’t be made brighter with a piece of homemade cake. No need for a fancy occasion for a warm and delicious cake right from the oven. No need at all I say.
So I seized the moment and made this Cinnamon Swirl Bundt Cake. What I really like about this recipe is how easy it is to make…seriously it’s no harder than mixing up a batch of pancakes. The ingredients for this cake are so simple, and I’m willing to bet you have them in your home already…nothing fancy here. In fact you can have this cake on the table and ready to serve in just over an hour…what a treat for your family!
I actually made this cake with the holiday season in mind, but you could serve it any time of year. But for me, there’s something about Christmas that makes me think of desserts with cinnamon as a main ingredient…cinnamon is such a holiday flavour. I think it would be wonderful for Christmas day brunch!
All delicious and tender and sweet and cinnamon-y. Irresistible.
Try this recipe at home, I bet your family will love it! It’s a keeper.
Cinnamon Swirl Bundt Cake
Cinnamon Swirl Cake:
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 cups flour
- 4 tsp baking powder
- 1 cup milk
Cinnamon Sugar Swirl:
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 2 tbsp cinnamon
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Cream together the butter and sugar.
Add the eggs, one at a time.
Then add vanilla.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour and baking powder.
To the butter mix, add 1/3 of the flour, then 1/2 of the milk. Repeat until all combined.
Prepare your Bundt pan. You can either flour and butter your pan, or use a flour spray (this is my preferred method).
Then in a separate bowl combine the 1/3 cup sugar and 2 tbsp of cinnamon. You may not use it all...I tend to use about 3/4 of this mixture, and save the rest for cinnamon toast!
Putting the cake together:
Spread half of the cake batter in the bottom of the Bundt Pan. Then sprinkle on about 1/2 of the cinnamon/sugar mix. Then using a fork, stir it a little into the batter.
Add the rest of the batter and sprinkle on more of the cinnamon/sugar mix. Stir again, just a little. Again, you may find there is too much sugar so just add as much as you like.
Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.
Let cool for about 10 minutes in the pan, then turn the cake out onto a plate.
Have a delicious day!
