Sammie & I went round & round. She wanted cinnamon cookies, I wanted to bake some kind of cake. This was our compromise a cinnamon bundt cake. We have been trying to get in as much baking as possible because once summer heat hits that’s it for heating up our ovens unless we get a cool day or foggy morning. On the hunt we went for the recipe, but what I didn’t realize is how much we’d been baking & I ran out of flour & sugar. No worries, I just adapted the cinnamon bundt cake recipe to include whole wheat flour & brown sugar vs. running to the store with half the batter ready.

No I didn’t take photos of the process this time. I was too busy adjusting the recipe, asking Sammie to get the pets out of the kitchen & tending to our new puppy under foot. I am going to share both recipes you decide which to try but, either is going to be easy to make, delicious & a crowd please r. Bonus extra goodness for every cinnamon lover out there! I think I could of pulled my cinnamon bundt cake out 5 minutes earlier as our oven runs hot but,  it was oh so yummy & moist. ( I used the FAGE yogurt I reviewed here on the blog in it) You can substitute the sour cream for Fage Yogurt in both the recipes! The Whole Wheat Recipe shows the substitution & is the one I made above.

My adapted Recipe uses yogurt instead of sour cream, omits nuts & glaze topping. Optional glaze toppings these two might be perfect Vanilla Glaze or Coffee Glaze that I saw with this Gingerbread bundt cake which I might have to try during the holiday season.
