Cinnamon Cake With Cream Cheese Frosting

This is a favorite "last minute" recipe, because most of these ingredients are usually in your pantry or refrigerator. It is very easily altered to meet individual tastes. Ideas: pumpkin pie spice instead of cinnamon, 2/3 cups chopped walnuts stirred into batter... It is a good recipe for cooking with a child.

ingredients

directions

  • Prepare 2 9-inch round cake pans by greasing and flouring them. You may also opt for a 9x13 pan instead. Set aside.
  • Sift together the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
  • In a separate bowl, cream the butter.
  • Blend the brown sugar into the butter.
  • Beat in eggs, mix until fluffy.
  • Add the dry ingredients and the buttermilk to the creamed sugar/butter mixture. Alternate between teh two, adding a little at a time until all ingredients are incorporated.
  • Pour batter into greased and floured pans. Bake 30-35 minutes, or until done. Remove from pans and cool.
  • In a bowl, beat the frosting ingredients together.
  • Frost the cooled cake with cream cheese frosting. Note: There is enough frosting for a 2-layer cake- if you make a sheet pan, you will end up with with leftover frosting, great for frosting some cookies!

    What a delightful cake ! This is a PAC 07 recipe I chose. I love anything cinnamon so this fit the bill. I made it in the round pans.This would be great for a fall potluck dinner.

    This was a nice moist cake. I was concerned about the amount of flour, thinking it needed more, but the cake was good. The recipe did not specify pan size, so I assumed 2 nine inch layers, but I made mine into a 9x13 sheetcake. There was too much frosting for my sheetcake, but you would need it for layers when frosting the sides. My mother and mother-in-law really enjoyed it.
