This simple recipe for a warm and buttery cinnamon sugar snack cake is the perfect sweet and easy baked treat!


  • 1 ¼ cups flour
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons butter, diced
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg


  1. Preheat oven to 350 and spray an 8 inch cake pan (I used a springform) with cooking spray.
  2. Put the flour, sugar and cinnamon in a food processor and pulse a few times to combine. Add the butter again and pulse until the mixture looks like sand.  Scoop out 1/3 cup and set aside.
  3. Transfer the flour mixture to a mixing bowl and add the baking powder, baking soda, buttermilk, vanilla and egg and mix until combined.
  4. Transfer the batter to your cake pan and smooth out the top with a spatula. Sprinkle on the saved 1/3 cup of the flour mixture.
  5. Bake until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Cool, cut into wedges and serve (maybe with a scoop of ice cream on top?)
