Cinnamon cake

September 25, 2009

From the long lost files. I have no idea where I got this recipe. It was saved in my draft posts folder. So my apologies to the origin. But I do remember making it, and I know it was delicious. Go forth and bake.

* 1 1/2 cups flour
* 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
* 6 tbs white sugar
* 1/2 tsp salt
* 1/3 cup shortening
* 1/2 cup half and half
* 1 egg
* 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
* cinnamon chips
* 2 tbs butter, melted
* 1/2 cup brown sugar
* 1 tbs cinnamon

Preheat oven to 425F. In a large mixing bowl, combine larger portion of flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Cut in shortening to pea sized pieces. In a smaller bowl, beat egg and stir in milk and vanilla. Add egg mixture to the flour mixture. Stir until just mixed. Stir in cinnamon chips. For the topping, mix the brown sugar, cinnamon and last bit of flour. In a loaf pan, layer half of the batter, half of the topping, half of the batter, rest of the topping. Bake for 20-30 minutes.
