I have to confess . . . I am somewhat of a cinnamon bun nut. I do love cinnamon anything . . . just the smell of cinnamon anything baking gets my taste buds to tingling. It should come as no surprise that I have an abundance of cinnamon related recipes! Most are quick and easy to make because . . . another confession . . . I am not a very patient person and the idea of waiting hours and hours for doughs to rise and what not just pains me. So all of my cinnamon indulgences are almost instantaneous gratification! And that's how I like it.
This cake has to be one of the simplest snack/brunch/teatime cakes to make. You just throw everything for the batter into a bowl and beat it up . . .
Then you dollop a buttery cinnamon/flour mixture over top and swirl it through with a knife . . . then pop the cake into the oven.
A final vanilla glaze gets poured over top when the cake comes out of the oven . . . because the cake is still warm, it kind of gets absorbed a tiny bit . . . scrumptious!
The result is a warm moreish cinnamon cake that will have everyone wanting just one more tiny sliver . . . you could always double it, which would mean of course that there was plenty for seconds and thirds, etc. In any case, I predict a love at first bite!
