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.
And if that wasn’t enough, this cake would be the perfect addition to your brunch menu for the weekend! I mean, cake for breakfast? Yes, please!!
