Super moist Cinnamon Cake

I had originally planned to make this 5 min cinnamon cake from Budget Savvy Diva for Church.

Don't they look tasty?


I made them the night before and they were super moist.  So moist that you needed a plate and fork to eat them without making a complete mess.  Well, that wouldn't work because this was for a meet and greet with our new associate pastor.  The bars needed to be something you could eat in hand.


So I whipped up a batch of Lazy Bars, this time with chocolate cake mix.  It was all I had time to make.  They at least, turned out OK.  (Let's just not talk about how I was so tired when I made the chocolate lazy bars that I opened an egg on the counter instead of in the bowl.  And how I had to yell for Mrblocko to get some paper towels because the egg was running everywhere as our counter top is NOT level.  No.  Let's not talk about that part.)

Let's keep talking about the Cinnamon cake instead.

Anyhow...I put some of the sliced gooey bars on a plate in the fridge, and some on layers of wax paper in the freezer.  Keeping the bars uncovered in the fridge dried them out enough so they held their shape better.  I thought they tasted weird, so I decided to play it safe and NOT bring them to church.

Strangely enough, the ones in the freezer tasted much better.  I'm not sure what that was all about.

I can't say I'd recommend making these bars.  They weren't my favorite, but Blockette and Mrblocko seemed to enjoy them.  Make them at your own risk!

5 Minute Cinnamon Cake from Budget Savvy Diva
1 + 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
2 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
pinch salt
large egg

1/2 cup brown sugar

Preheat Oven at 350. Grease a 13×9 pan. In a bowl mix all cake ingredients and place in pan. Sprinkle brown sugar,cinnamon; walnuts on top of cake. Drizzle melted butter over top. Bake for 30 minutes.

I also made a glaze of:
2c powdered sugar
4T milk
1 t vanilla

Combine ingredients.  Add more milk as needed to reach desired consistency.  Drizzle over slightly warm bars.


  1. They look tasty.
    Great recipe!

  2. I'm glad you think they look tasty. I really wish they held together better without freezing them. Guess that happens sometimes.

    Thanks for stopping by!
