Easy and delicious cinnaon cake recipe

I found this Cinnamon Cake recipe while browsing my recipe file ( has tons of recipe that I find here and there, over the years, and print) looking for a cake idea to bake during the weekend. It’s been in my file for quite some time and I hadn’t tried it yet. Am so glad I did because this cake is so D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S!!

Easy to make and so darn tasty. The cinnamon topping melts into the cake (just imagine how good it is!) I made it on Saturday, there was nothing left by Monday morning…

Preparation: 10 min

Cooking: 25-35 min

What you’ll need:

For the Cinnamon TOPPING:

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1/4 cold butter

1/4 cup plain flour

1/2 cup light brown sugar (if you don’t have any, use normal caster sugar)


3/4  cup sugar

1+1/2 cups of plain flour

1/2 tsp salt (table salt)

2+1/2 tsp baking powder

1 egg

1/3 cup melted butter

1/2 cup of milk

1 tsp vanilla extract

Cinnamon Cake Recipe made easy and delicious

How to make it:

Preheat your oven at 180ºC/350ºF and grease a round cake pan or use parchment paper

Start by making the cake topping: In a bowl combine the flour, butter, light brown sugar and cinnamon.

Use your finger or a fork and mix the ingredients until you have large crumbs. Set aside.

To make the batter: In another bowl, mix, using an electric mixer, the sugar, the egg and the melted butter.

Add the vanilla extract and the milk. Mix until the mixture is smooth.

Sift the flour, the salt and the baking powder. Add these dry ingredients and mix well until your batter is creamy and yellow.

Pour the batter into the cake pan, and then sprinkle the topping evenly on top. Bake for 25 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the cake comes out clean.

Let it cool outside before removing it from the pan.

Please, you have to make this cake, it’s so delicious. I was so surprised by how easy it was to make…and the taste! This cake is going to become a frequent visitor of this household!
