  • Bake for about 20 minutes. You may need to adjust your baking time - test with a toothpick for doneness. Remove from oven & cool on a wire rack.
  • Frosting Directions.
  • Beat softened butter with electric mixer until light and fluffy.
  • Add confectioners sugar, 3 teaspoons milk and vanilla. Blend until mixed well.
  • Add cinnamon. Beat on medium about 1 more minute.
  • If frosting seems too stiff, add in 1-2 tables spoons of milk.
  • **Add additional or use less cinnamon or vanilla for taste if desired. This recipe is to my taste but could be a bit strong for some. My best advice would be to experiment with what tastes best for you.**.
