Really easy, fantastic aroma and great taste. Update to my review, I have just made this cake again, and used up some buttermilk instead of sour cream - terrific. Also sprinkled some walnuts in middle layer of cinamon. Yumm!

YUM! I added some ground nutmeg (maybe 1/2 tsp) and a tinge of ground cloves (maybe 1/8 - 1/4 tsp) as well. I didn't use paper; I baked in a ceramic loaf pan & it took a full hour to cook. Very tasty!!! I might add nuts and/or cranberries next time, just to see. This turned out fairly sweet, so I personally wouldn't add anything sweet like choc chips. Cut off the bottom (so I can take the pretty loaf to work) and ate it with butter...MMMMMM!!

This recipe is really yummy! I love, kids love it, and it is so easy to whip up. However, I think cinnamon cake is a better description. So good though!
