Lola’s Kitchen is a feature on Lola’s Reviews where I talk about all things related to food, cooking and baking. These posts can be recipe posts, tens list posts about food or recipes or more discussion type posts about food. I love cooking and spend some time in the kitchen almost every day, so I wanted to give it a place on my blog as well. The banner for this feature is designed by Michelle from Limabean Designs.
This is a recipe I found on pinterest, it looked like a quick to prepare and yummy cake or bread as you in the US usually call it and I had to give it a try. It turned out really good. The cake is soft and fluffy and the cinnamon adds something extra to the cake. The oven smelled delicious when I opened it to check on the cake. Definitely worth a try if you like cinnamon.
This recipe is based on Lil’ Luna her Cinnamon Sugar Quick Bread Recipe.
- Flour – 2 cups/ 250 gram
- Sugar for the cake – 160 gram/ 4/5 cup
- Sugar for the swirls – 50 gram/ 1/4 cup
- Cinnamon – 2 tablespoons and 1 teaspoon
- Salt – 1/2 teaspoon or a pinch
- Milk or buttermilk – 1 cup/ 250 ml
- Olive Oil – 1/4 cup/ 62 ml
- Egg – 1
- Baking Soda – 1 teaspoon
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit/ 175 degrees Celsius.
- In a small bowl combine the cinnamon and the sugar for the swirls. Stir well and set aside.
- In a big bowl combine the egg, milk and the olive oil and mix for a bit. Then add the salt, flour, sugar and baking soda and mix until well combined.
- Put some baking paper in an oven proof bowl or load pan. Scoop half of the cake mixture inside. Then cover it with about half of the cinnamon mixture. Put the rest of the cake mixture on top and then the rest of the cinnamon mixture on top of that. With a spoon or other kitchen utensil mix through the batter to stir the cinnamon through the cake mixture which will create the swirls.
- bake the cake for 45-50 minutes if using a loaf pan and for 30-35 if using a flat oven proof bowl like I did.
- Let the cake cool down a bit, then move to a wire rack to cool down further. Enjoy your cake!
- Cake with cinnamon cake. In stead of creating swirls, divide the batter in two and mix the cinnamon mixture through on half of the mixture. Put the plain cake mixture in the form first and then add the cinnamon half. With a spoon or knife combine a bit.
- Add chocolate chips. Add a cup of chocolate chips to the cake mixture before baking it.
- Cake with Cacao swirls. Replace the cinnamon with cacao powder instead.
