I think we can all agree that the best way to wake up on a weekend morning is to a kitchen that yielding delicious scents. When you throw cinnamon into a cake, it’s going to power out that warm cinnamon scent and send it into every nook and cranny of your home. This cake will do that for your kitchen!
To me, this is what weekends are all about. I love to make a comforting weekend breakfast on one of my weekend mornings (usually Sunday), and my family is always over-the-moon crazy about the idea. It turns into brunch more often than not these days… since I have an almost 17-year old teenager who doesn’t emerge from his room until nearly noon.

Cinnamon Morning Cake
- 1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter, at room temperature
- 2 cups granulated white sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 4 large eggs
- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups sour cream
- 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
- 3/4 cup granulated white sugar
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 10-inch tube (bundt) pan with nonstick spray.

- In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Add the dry ingredients alternately to the butter mixture with the sour cream. Mix until the batter is smooth.
- Spoon 1/3 of batter into the prepared pan.
- Combine the topping ingredients in a small bowl. Sprinkle 1/3 over the batter in the pan. Layer 1/3 more batter on top of cinnamon mixture. Continue layers, ending with cinnamon mixture on top.
- Bake 60 to 70 minutes, or until cake tests done (toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean). Cool for 10 minutes. Remove from pan to cool completely.
