My Name Is Snickerdoodle: Cinnamon Sour Cream Cake

Cinnamon Sour Cream Cake

I have gotten many recipes from my family members that I absolutely love.  This cake comes from my mother in law and the first time I had it, years ago, I remember how I'd had nothing like it before.  It was simply just tasty!
It wasn't until years later when I got my hands on the recipe that I started to make it for our family functions.  My brother in law had a slice and asked what it was.  I told him it was the same cake our mother in law made.  He snickered and said, "Well, don't tell her but, you make it much better!"

I laughed to myself because I had a little secret.  I had altered her recipe a bit to make it a little more moist and practically doubled the cinnamon/brown sugar ratio from the original.  It's become one of my all time favorite bunt cakes.

This Cinnamon Sour Cream cake has the sweet density of a pound cake.  The cinnamon center is a nice surprise when you cut into it.  Plus there is the added bonus of the brown sugar crumble on the bottom if your are sweet crumbs kind of person (which I am!).  This is where it was nice that I doubled up on the original recipe.
