Sugar and Spice Cake

Posted on: August 7, 2011

Happy Sunday everyone! 🙂  Did this weekend fly by or what?!


I almost didn’t bake today, but man am I glad I did. 

Sugar and Spice Cake – original recipe here


1 1/4 cups flour
1 cup sugar
3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 eggs



  1. Heat oven to 350º. Grease bottom and side of round pan, 9×1 1/2 inches, or square pan, 8x8x2 inches
  2.  Mix flour sugar, cinnamon and salt in large bowl. Cut in butter, using pastry blender or crisscrossing 2 knives, until mixture is size of small peas; reserve 1/3 cup.
  3.  Stir remaining ingredients into flour mixture with spoon until well blended. Pour into pan. Sprinkle reserved flour mixture over batter.

 Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Serve warm or cool.

*I don’t have a pastry blender so I used the two knives and it worked just fine


 This is soooo light and fluffy.  It also makes me want fall time to be here NOW 🙂


Question of the night:

What’s your favorite thing about fall?
