This cinnamon butter cake is super simple to make and smell amazing. In a big bowl, add two eggs and lightly beat the eggs then add in one cup of sugar then continue beating until well combined, nice and fluffy and the sugar is dissolved. In a saucepan, melt butter and one cup of milk and heat just until the milk starts to boil then remove from the heat and set it aside.

Into the eggs and sugar mixture, sift in all-purpose flour and baking powder then mix it in and add the melted butter and milk. Use a whisk to stir until you get a smooth batter. If you want to have moire cinnamon flavour in the cake, you can add some cinnamon to the batter and fold it in until it is well combined. Pour the batter in a prepared 8 inch round cake tin and bake in 350 degrees Fahrenheit preheated oven for 30 minutes.

Once baked, remove the cake from the tin while still hot and place it on a plate then brush the top with melted butter then take cinnamon and sugar and sift it over the top of the cake. When the sugar and cinnamon hit the butter, it smells amazing you are going to love it. This cake will come out beautiful and moist in the middle, it’s gorgeous and too good. Slice and enjoy.
