Glazed Cinnamon Snack Cake

We LOVE cinnamon at our house.  This cake has a great cinnamon flavor and the sour cream (I know, I add sour cream to a lot of things) makes it so moist.  No plate and fork required, just pick up a piece and enjoy.  It is very hard to pass through the kitchen and not grab a piece when it is sitting there, it did not last long!

Cake Batter:
2½ cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup butter, softened
1¼ cups sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 eggs
1/2 cup sour cream
2 tsp vanilla

Cinnamon Filling:
2 Tbl sugar
1½ tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg

1 cup powdered sugar
1 Tbl butter, melted
2 Tbl milk
1/2 tsp vanilla

Heat oven to 350°.  Spray 13”x9” pan with non-stick spray.  In small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt, set aside.  In large bowl, cream butter, sugar, and brown sugar with electric mixer.  Add eggs, sour cream, and vanilla, mix until combined.  Mix in dry ingredients.

Spoon 2/3 of batter into pan, spread evenly.  Combine ingredients for cinnamon filling and sprinkle evenly over batter.  Drop tablespoon size amounts of remaining batter evenly over cinnamon filling.

Bake 25 to 30 minutes (cover with foil as soon as turns golden brown & continue baking) until pick inserted in center comes out clean.  Cool completely.  In small bowl, stir glaze ingredients until smooth.  Drizzle over cake.

  1. I avoid sweets but allow myself to have one bite of something I have never tried before. So, it was under this misguided personal policy that I tried Kristen’s latest creation: “Glazed Cinnamon Snack Cake.” I could not stop at one bite.

    Jacob and I agree that this is something that every child growing up in America should have on a regular basis. A family staple. One of those desserts that complete strangers from different parts of the country will talk about: “Hey my mom made those too.”

  2. In an effort to encourage self-control, I made these as cupcakes (to freeze some of them). Despite having slightly over-baked them, they came out delicious!!! I posted a photo on my blog. Thanks so much, Kristen, for an awesome recipe!
