This is less of a cake, and more of just a giant cinnamon swirl. But to be honest, I can’t think of a scenario where the words “giant cinnamon swirl” would be a bad thing.
I followed this recipe – mine is definitely more lopsided, and my swirls slightly unswirled themselves at the rising stage – but it tasted un-be-lievable. Besides, homemade cakes shouldn’t look perfect anyway.
The cake survived an inter-county journey back to my mum’s house (it’s her birthday cake) – probably helped by the sticky maple syrup glaze that held it together. These finished shots were taken on my phone – I was so excited about eating it that I forgot to use my camera.
