This Simple Cinnamon Cake is light and wonderful. Perfect for the cinnamon lover on a Sunday brunch or Easter!
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
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Generously grease and lightly flour a 10-inch bundt pan.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
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.
Beat in the flour mixture, alternating with the milk.
Pour batter in the prepared pan. Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Remove cake from oven; cool 10 minutes.
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.
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.
