Delicious! That's it - just one pure word ! Did not change a thing - your directions are spot on and we all enjoyed a slice (well okay we enjoyed 2 slices each) this morning! So moist and the butter & sugar/cinnamon topping - well just heavenly. From 5 people you received 5 stars so you should have 25 stars on this quick and easy recipe! Found and made during ZWT8

I really enjoyed this quick and easy cake recipe. The texture was nice and sponge-like, and the sweetness was just right. I plan to make this again. Made for ZWT 8.

I had tea time in the late afternoon, and this went very well with my ginger tea. It also made for a really good morning cake. I love the cinnamon in here, it is so good.
