Cinnamon Swirl Cake

Hi there!

Presenting a baking post this evening! Decided that the kitchen needed a strong flavour floating through and so cinnamon won the battle! πŸ™‚ Found this amazing recipe online – apparently it is quite popular among bakers – well it certainly won it for me! πŸ™‚ Super cake and proud to say all gone as of tonight!

Has a lovely soft texture on the inside with bursts of cinnamon sugar and a lovely sugary crust on top. Divine! πŸ™‚

You will need –

3 cups – flour

1/4 tsp – salt

4 tsp – baking powder

Sift and keep aside.

2 – eggs

1 cup – castor sugar

2 tsp – vanilla

Beat well till well combined.

Add the flour mix and fold in gently.

1 1/2 cups – milk

1/2 cup – melted, cooled butter

Add the milk and butter and fold in till combined well. Add the melted butter last.

Pour into a greased pan (note that with all that baking powder the batter rises well so make sure your baking dish is either big or use two baking pans)

*note: the original recipe says to mix everything together and then add the butter last. I did this step-by-step so please choose your comfort levels of mixing!*

Topping –

1 cup – butter, soft

1 cup – brown sugar

1 tsp – cinnamon powder

2 tbsp – flour

Mix all these well till combined and drop dollops onto the batter already poured out. Now use your finger to incorporate into the batter to make swirls.

Bake at 350 F(180 C) for 30 minutes or till center comes out clean.

Now the original recipe has a frosting but I think the cake is nice enough as is! πŸ™‚ But if you are the frosting kind, then it is a simple one with milk, sugar and vanilla.

Can you see that yummy sugary cinnamony layer?? πŸ™‚

Thanks for stopping by and I hope I got your calories up by just looking at these pictures! πŸ˜€
