This Cinnamon Swirl Bundt Cake is a perfect dessert! Warm vanilla cake with a sweet cinnamon sugar swirl through the centre. Delicious!



Cinnamon Swirl Cake:

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup milk

Cinnamon Sugar Swirl:

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cream together the butter and sugar.
  3. Add the eggs, one at a time.
  4. Then add vanilla.
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour and baking powder.
  6. To the butter mix, add 1/3 of the flour, then 1/2 of the milk. Repeat until all combined.
  7. Prepare your Bundt pan.  You can either flour and butter your pan, or use a flour spray (this is my preferred method).
  8. Then in a separate bowl combine the 1/3 cup sugar and 2 tbsp of cinnamon.  You may not use it all…I tend to use about 3/4 of this mixture, and save the rest for cinnamon toast!

Putting the cake together:

  1. Spread half of the cake batter in the bottom of the Bundt Pan. Then sprinkle on about 1/2 of the cinnamon/sugar mix. Then using a fork, stir it a little into the batter.
  2. Add the rest of the batter and sprinkle on more of the cinnamon/sugar mix. Stir again, just a little.  Again, you may find there is too much sugar so just add as much as you like.
  3. Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.
  4. Let cool for about 10 minutes in the pan, then turn the cake out onto a plate.
