Birthday Cinnamon Coffee Cake

It's my boss (and best friend!), Devin's birthday today so I decided to bake him a special cake! It's his favorite...Cinnamon Coffee Cake! I got the recipe from this blog and it's just perfectly moist and cinnamon-y! My entire kitchen smelled SO good last night! Happy Birthday D-Vo!


2 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
¼ c butter at room temperature
1 c white sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 c buttermilk
1 c brown sugar
2 heaping Tbsp ground cinnamon


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9x5 inch loaf pan with non stick spray.

2. Mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl and set aside. Mix the buttermilk and vanilla in a measuring cup and set aside. Mix the brown sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl and set aside.

3. In a bowl cream the butter and white sugar together and then add in the eggs one at a time. Add 1/3 of the flour mixture and mix to combine, then add 1/2 of the buttermilk mixture. Repeat this and end with the flour.

4. Pour 1/3 of the batter into the prepared pan and top with 1/3 of the cinnamon mixture, repeat so that the final layer of cinnamon mixture is the topping on the bread. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.
