Cinnamon Swirl Cake

Cinnamon Swirl Cake

My friend Kiertse makes some of my favorite baked treats - check her out at Sweetpea Recipes. This one is definitely a keeper - a super yummy warm cake with a cinnamon buttercream frosting. We made this on Thanksgiving and it didn't last too long!


3 c. flour
1 c. sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 c. milk
1 stick melted butter
1 stick melted butter (yes, 2 total!)
2/3 c. brown sugar
1 T. flour
1 T. cinnamon


1. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
2. Add eggs, vanilla, milk, and melted butter, and mix well.
3. Pour into a sugared (sprayed with cooking spray, and coated with sugar) bundt pan.
4. Melt the second stick of butter, then stir in the brown sugar, cinnamon, and flour.
5. Pour on top of the cake, and with a butter knife, swirl it through the cake.
6. Bake at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Cinnamon Buttercream Frosting


8 T. butter, room temperature
3 3/4 c. powdered sugar
3-4 T. whole milk
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tsp. ground cinnamon


1. Place the powdered sugar in a large mixing bowl.
2. Add the butter, and 3 T of milk.
3. Blend with the mixer on low speed until the powdered sugar is incorporated, then add the vanilla and cinnamon.
4. Increase the speed to medium, and beat until fluffy.
5. Add more milk if the frosting seems too stiff.
6. Melt it in the microwave for 30 seconds, or until you can pour it over the cake.
