Delicious cinnamon butter bundt cake covered in sweet cinnamon sugar.



  • 230 grams (1 cup / 2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 200 grams (1 cup) caster sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs
  • 315 grams (2 and 1/4 cups) plain flour
  • 2 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 160 ml (2/3 cup) milk
  • 2 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Cinnamon topping

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon


  1. Grease an 8-cup capacity bundt pan or a medium sized cake tin (approximately 8-9 inches in diameter) with a little butter or non stick cooking spray. Preheat the oven to 180 C (360 F).
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the butter, sugar and vanilla and beat with an electric mixer until combined. Add in the eggs, one at a time, and beat well after each addition. Next, sift in half the flour, the baking powder and half the milk. Gently stir using a wooden spoon or a spatula. Then add the rest of the flour and milk and continue to stir until combined.
  3. Spoon approximately half of the batter into your prepared tin. In a separate bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon. Gently sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over the cake batter and then dollop spoonfuls of the remaining cake mix on top.
  4. Pop the cake into the oven and bake for approximately 45-50 minutes or until lovely and golden on top and a skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean. Remove the cake from the oven and set aside. In a separate bowl, melt the butter in the microwave. Mix together the extra cinnamon and sugar in a bowl. Gently remove the cake from the tin and set onto a wire rack. While the cake is still warm, brush with melted butter and then generously sprinkle over the cinnamon sugar.
