Cinnamon Cake and Update of Sorts!!!

Hi everyone!!! I have been away from blogging for almost 3-4 months now. Let me apologize to you guys for disappearing without leaving any information. I had gone to India for 2 months and I had to take care of so many things before I left.  It was so hectic you won’t believe it. I didn’t even have time to log in and post an update. I have been back for almost a month now and we are settling in. Kids are back to school and I am back to blogging. I have so many new recipes to try, so watch out this space for lots of new recipes. After coming back from India, my hands were just itching to make something, so had to try this cake. It was super delicious, melt in the mouth kind of cake. Believe me guys on this, you need to make this cake ASAP. I got this recipe from Sarah’s blog. I am writing the recipe here, but if you want to go to the source you are more than welcome to…

cinnamon cake

Ingredients:

  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 8 ounce tub sour cream
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 c. vegetable oil
  • 1 c brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 c. powdered sugar
  • 4 Tbsp. milk
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla

Method:

Preheat oven to 325.  Prepare 9 x 13 pan.
In large mixing bowl, combine cake mix, eggs, oil, and sour cream.  Stir by hand until large lumps are gone.  There will still be some lumps but that’s ok.
Pour half the batter into the pan.
Now, in a medium bowl.  Take your brown sugar and cinnamon and combine.
Mix up your brown sugar and cinnamon really well.
Sprinkle the brown sugar mixture all over the batter in the cake pan.
Don’t do what I did below. Be sure to get that cinnamon mixture all the way to the edge of the pan.
Now carefully spread the other half of the batter on  top.
Don’t be

afraid, it’s gonna get really uncomfortable.

All the batter and stuff is gonna get all mixed together and you’re gonna think you are doing it all wrong.
But don’t worry how it looks.  Trust me.
Once it’s all spread around, take a butter knife and twirl it all through the batter, so it gets all swirly and stuff.
Bake for 40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Just when it’s about done baking, mix together your powdered sugar, vanilla and milk.
I always use a fork to be sure all the little clumps get broken up.
Once the cake comes out of the oven, waste no time at all.
Pour this powdered sugar mixture over the warm cake.
Now sit back and wait for the wonderful crackle to appear.
Try your hardest to wait about 15 minutes before you cut into her.
If you have any favorite recipes please share it with me… Hope you make this cake and enjoy it with your loved ones as much as I did…
Till next time,
Yours truly,
Aparna
