I made a huge mess this afternoon in my oven making these cakes! Learn from my mistake and make this cake in a 9 x 13 inch baking pan rather than little cakes. The buttery cinnamon swirl ooozed out all over my oven making a huge smoky mess, so use the pan!!
This recipe is from my brother in law’s very talented mother (Mrs. Adams). I always hear about the great food that she makes, so I finally bummed the recipe from my sister. I tasted this cake last year and loved it! It is a real treat. I’m just not going to try the cute little individual cakes next time!! Enjoy, this is a great recipe!
