This recipe was shared by a friend who, to me, is the quintessential "older woman." It is an easy snack cake to put together when you are in a hurry, or don't have a lot of ingredients on hand.
Heat oven to 350 Degrees Fahrenheit
Melt 1 stick of butter
Using a spoon, mix together in a bowl:
- 2 cups flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 cup milk
- 1 tsp. real vanilla
- 2 Tbsp. of the melted butter (save the rest for the topping)
Spread batter in a greased jelly roll pan
Bake 20-25 Min.
While it’s baking, stir together ½ cup sugar and 1 ½ tsp cinnamon.
While the cake is hot, right out of the oven prick with fork and spread with remaining butter. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture.
