Here you can do as you like if you want to use icing sugar glaze or not when the cake is finished.
My assessment is that the cake is sweet enough as it is, so I prefer it without icing sugar glaze, as I think the taste of cinnamon and vanilla is more appropriate.

It will be a taste thing, please try to make it with or without icing sugar glaze and I would love to know your comment.


0.33 lb (150g) of sugar
0.11 lb (50g) brown sugar
0.33 lb (150g) butter, soft
3 pcs egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
0.66 lb (300g) all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon sugar

0.33 lb (150g) icing sugar

Stir sugar, brown sugar and butter light and airy. Add eggs one at a time and stir well. Stir in vanilla extract. Dust the all-purpose flour together with the baking powder and stir into the dough.

Cover the baking pan with baking paper and add half the dough to the mold as smoothly as possible. Make the filling by mixing cinnamon and sugar together. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the dough. Use a spoon to spread the rest of the dough over the cake. It will look something similar to this:

Place the cake in a preheated oven, 180°C (356°F) and bake for 20-25 minutes until it is completely cooked. Check with the cake stick before taking the cake out of the oven. Let the cake cool in the mold.

Lift the cake out of the mold using the baking paper and cut the cake into rows.

To make the glaze, mix the icing sugar with milk. Start with 1 tablespoon of milk until it is smooth and runny (but not too runny glaze). Use a spoon to spread the icing strip over the cake.

Leave the glaze stiff before placing the cake pieces in a cake box for storage.

It tastes so good!

  1. This sounds absolutely delicious! I love trying new cake recipes and have never actually had a cinnamon cake! Does this bake well as a bundt cake too?

    1. Hi thank you for your feedback.
      Here with us it is very popular, so I probably have to make a new one soon.

      I have never tried to make it like a bundt cake, but I think it does not matter.
      What matters is the taste, so which shape does not matter.

      Hope it’s okay I ask you a question, I’ve had trouble with this post, how was it now?
      Clear pictures and easy to find?

      Have a nice day / evening


  2. I love cinnamon cake and I agree with you that the icy can make it a lot sweeter. The odd thing, is that as I get older I tend to like sweets more. I haven’t tried your recipe, I’m going to try it. Thanks!

    1. Thank you for your replay, my pleasure to meat you.
      Good to hear that you agree about the icing sugar glaze.
      Honestly I have never tried with the icy, I like it as it is.
      Yes I have to agree that I`m consuming a little more sweets now then I was younger.
      When you try to make it, be sure you stir the sugar and butter so it is slightly liquid and light white.

      Have a nice day
