Hi! Jenn back from Deliciously Sprinkled with a delicious cake recipe, just in time for the upcoming holidays! This Cinnamon-Sugar Cake has been at our families Thanksgiving & Christmas dinner table ever since I was a little girl. It’s everyone’s favorite cake and my grandma only makes it during the holiday season.
So when I wanted to make this Cinnamon-Sugar Cake for my husband’s birthday, my grandma shared her recipe with me and I’m excited to share this famous cake recipe with all of you today, your welcome! 🙂
This cake is light and fluffy, and the cinnamon buttercream frosting packs a big hit of cinnamon flavor without being too overwhelming. If you love a classic snickerdoodle cookie this cake is for you, enjoy!
