My grandmother makes this every year Christmas morning. The warmth from the oven and the smell of cinnamon throughout the house is comforting. :)

I love everything about this cake. It is so easy and so good. The best part is, it goes into a cold oven, set the timer for 55 minutes and, it comes out perfectly.
