Cinnamon Toast Cake

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.
