Sammie and I went round and round over what to bake. 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 the 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 until I ran out of flour and sugar. What??! No worries, I just adapted the cinnamon bundt cake recipe to include whole wheat flour and brown sugar vs. running to the store with half the batter already made.
Find your prettiest platter. Or one your mom or grandma handed down to you. Lay some edible flowers around the plate. Add a glaze. It could be one with vanilla or one with a coffee glaze. Easy options to dress up this cinnamon bundt cake that is perfect for your Mother’s Day brunch or any other time you will serve this cake.
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. And tending to our new puppy underfoot. I am going to share both recipes you decide which to try but, either is going to be easy to make. It is delicious and a crowd pleaser.
Bonus extra goodness for every cinnamon lover out there! I think I could have pulled my cinnamon bundt cake out 5 minutes earlier as our oven runs hot. But, it was still oh so yummy and moist. I used Yogurt but you can substitute the sour cream for either of the recipes. The Whole Wheat Recipe shows the substitution and is the one I made above.
Not sure where I got the original recipe was so long ago.
- My adapted Recipe uses yogurt instead of sour cream, omits nuts and glaze topping.
- Optional glaze toppings these two might be perfect Vanilla Glaze
- Or this Coffee Glaze that I saw with a Gingerbread bundt cake which I might have to try during the holiday season.
- I might try this whole wheat cinnamon bundt cake recipe next.
