Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Brush a fluted tube pan (such as Bundt®) with a little butter and dust with some flour.

  • Cream sugar, butter, and oil together in a bowl until well combined. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix in vanilla extract.

  • Sift 2 cups plus 2 tablespoons flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a separate bowl. Fold 1/3 of the flour mixture gently into the butter mixture with a spatula. Mix in 1/2 of the buttermilk. Repeat once more, then mix in remaining flour until just combined. Avoid overmixing. Pour batter into the prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Allow cake to cool in the pan for 15 minutes before inverting onto a cooling rack to cool completely.

Cook's Note:

Instead of buttermilk, you can use sour cream or yogurt.

This cake is easy, attractive, and delicious. Just the right amount of cinnamon flavor. It can be made quickly from common pantry ingredients. Mine was a little overdone in the allotted 45 minutes; check yours early. Sometimes a plain cake is just what you crave! Read More

It's a nice cake, however it's a little bit "one-note." A bit of caramel glaze and some chopped nuts would pep this up considerably. I do like that it's made entirely with ingredients I normally have on hand. Read More
