This cake is the best cinnamon cake I have ever made. Every time I serve it, the compliments never end. Serve it warm, about 45 minutes out of the oven, for an even greater pleasure.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and lightly flour a 10 inch Bundt pan. Stir together the flour, baking powder, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon and salt; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat shortening, 1 1/3 cups white sugar and 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating for at least 1 minute after each egg. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the milk. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack. Remove cake from pan while it is still warm, and poke holes around the top of the cake with a fork. Pour the warm cinnamon syrup into the holes and onto the top and sides of the cake.
  4. To Make Cinnamon Syrup: In a saucepan, combine 1/2 cup white sugar, butter, water, 1 teaspoon vanilla and 3/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon. Heat and stir until butter melts.
  5. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

This is a good, simple cake to have with coffee. To glaze it neatly, I used a tip I got from elsewhere on this site. Make the glaze while the cake is cooling slightly on a rack. Prick the cake all over with a skewer or icepick. Then, pour part of the hot glaze into the pan, put the cake back into the pan, and pour the rest of the glaze on top. Leave the cake in the pan to cool and to absorb the glaze, then invert onto a plate to serve.

This was fabulous! It's very light. I followed the recipe exactly, with a few minor variations: used butter instead of shortening, and increased "cake" cinnamon to 1 TB and "topping" cinnamon to 1 1/2 tsp. I also sifted the dry ingredients before incorporating. It was done baking in 39 minutes, and not dry at all. I will make this again. Next time I will probably poke larger holes for the sauce to soak into the cake.

I followed others' advice and upped the cinnamon in the cake batter to 1 Tablespoon, and used butter instead of shortening. For the sauce/glaze, I used brown sugar instead of white and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon. The family raved! Thanks!
