Cinnamon Pound Cake

I had planned to make this cake this weekend but got busy with other things and never got around to it. So, I made it yesterday. You should have smelled it cooking! OH MY! Yngwie came in the kitchen and said "Smells like Christmas in here". It tasted just as good as it smelled too. I did make one mistake making this cake; fortunately it was easily corrected. I looked at the recipe on the other side of the cookbook and put in 3 cups of sugar! This recipe only calls for 1/2 cup of sugar. But since I hadn't mixed the cinnamon in it yet I was able to scoop it out.

Cinnamon Pound Cake (From the VIP Cookbook, A Potpouri of Virginia Cooking Vol VII)

1 box yellow cake mix
1/2 cup sugar (not 3 cups!)
1/4 cup cinnamon
1 box vanilla instant pudding
1/2 cup vegetable oil
8 oz. sour cream
1/4 cup water
4 eggs
confectioners sugar (optional)

Mix cinnamon and sugar together and set aside. (make sure you didn't add 3 cups of sugar!)
Mix all other ingredients together using a mixer until well blended. Slowly add mixture of cinnamon and sugar to cake mix mixture. Bake in a greased and floured tube or bundt pan for 50 minutes on 350. Sprinkle top with confectioners sugar if desired.

Thanks Doris Clark from Bridgewater, VA for a delicious recipe!

Have a blessed day!

Knowing me, I'd probably have appreciated it, with the 3 cups of sugar. -grin-

Beautiful cake-I did the opposite while making zucchini bread and didn't remember the sugar until I poured the batter into the pans.
