A Simple Easy Cinnamon Cake, fast, easy and delicious, a soft full of cinnamon cake recipe. The perfect anytime cake, from Breakfast, to Snack or Dessert.
I must admit I have been dying to post this recipe. I’ve been making this cinnamon cake for at least 20 years! And where did I get it from?
Obviously my mother, she was and still is with me through the handwritten recipes she left me. My mother is probably my main source for my Non Italian dessert recipes, because holy cow could my mother bake!
I remember coming home from school when I was a kid and there would be cookie sheets filled with all her wonderful Christmas Cookies and bars just waiting to be eaten during the holidays. Nobody could make those cookies like my Mom could.
She would fill cookie tins full of these delicacies and put them in the freezer. But that never stopped us, I used to think if I sneaked down and took a few who would notice? But seriously, who are we kidding?
We are talking about mothers, they notice everything. My husband even admits to sneaking down and taking a few himself. Good times and good memories.
Moving on to this Simple Easy Cinnamon Cake. Ahhh the smell of cinnamon baking in the oven has to be one of my favourite aromas.
