Course: Dessert
Servings: 12
Ingredients
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/3 cups granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup unsalted butter , softened
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup whole milk
Cinnamon Syrup Glaze
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Generously grease and lightly flour a 10-inch bundt pan.

  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  3. In a large bowl, beat together the sugar, butter, and vanilla with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, fully incorporating between each one.
  4. Beat in the flour mixture, alternating with the milk.
  5. Pour batter in the prepared pan. Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. Remove cake from oven; cool 10 minutes.
  7. While the cake cools, make the cinnamon glaze. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, water, butter, vanilla, and cinnamon. Heat over medium until sugar is dissolved and mixture is slightly thickened.
  8. Turn cake out onto a wire rack set over a plate. Using a fork, poke holes all over the cake, then drizzle with the cinnamon syrup glaze.
  9. Slice, serve, and enjoy!
