Sometimes I make things that are vegetarian, low calorie and healthy. This is not one of them, but life is short. From the Blog Cinnamon Spice and Everything Nice by Reeni Pisano.

Ingredients:

Cake:
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 + 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
Topping:
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
Glaze:
  • 2 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 5 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. Butter and flour a 9×13 baking pan. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. To a large bowl add all the cake ingredients except the butter. Mix until just combined – the mixture will be thick. Slowly stir in the butter until just combined – don’t overmix or it will be rubbery.
  3. Pour or spoon into the prepared pan.
  4. To make the topping mix all the ingredients together until well combined. Drop spoonfuls evenly over the batter and swirl with a knife.
  5. Bake 28-32 minutes. While cake is warm whisk the glaze ingredients together until smooth and drizzle over the cake. To serve cut into squares.
