This time of year, it’s all about pumpkin spice, but there are so many other great fall flavors!
Warm spices, especially cinnamon, are perfect for the chilly fall weather.
This cinnamon swirl bundt cake combines brown sugar cinnamon batter and sweet vanilla batter in one yummy cake.
This swirl technique is easy, and it makes for a cake with nice clean swirls throughout the batter.
The cake itself is a little bit more dense – sort of a cross between a light and fluffy cake and a pound cake. It tastes like a cinnamon crumb cake with the crumb topping swirled into the cake instead of baked on top.
This cinnamon swirl bundt cake makes a perfect fall dessert, and it’s a must-try for anyone who likes cinnamon.
