Cinnamon Vanilla Cake with Buttercream Frosting!

Sometimes the most simple flavors when combined can give you such amazing results. For this recipe I used Cinnamon Powder  and Vanilla Pods that I had bought from a Spice Farm in Goa. So next time you are in Goa do explore these Spice Farms, you can get some exciting spices from there.

For the Cake Batter:

  1. All Purpose Flour: 2 cups
  2. Castor Sugar: 1 1/2 cups
  3. Eggs: 4 at room Temp
  4. Unsalted Butter: 1 slab
  5. Salt: 1/4 teaspoon
  6. Baking Powder: 1 tsp
  7. Baking Soda: 1 tsp
  8. Vanilla Pods: 2
  9. Cinnamon Powder: 1 1/2 tsp
  10.  Vegetable Oil: 2 tbsp

Sift all the dry ingredients together except the Cinnamon Powder. In a separate bowl beat your butter and mix in the sugar one spoon at a time. Add in eggs one egg at a time and beat. Add in Vanilla by scraping the pods with a sharp knife, you can use Vanilla extract just 2 teaspoon if you don’t have the pods. Add in Oil and beat.

Now add the dry ingredients into the wet mix. Add in Cinnamon in the end and adjust the flavor according to taste. If you want you can add in more for the extra kick. Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 45 minutes at 180 degrees. Take it out and let it cool before you start icing it.

For The Frosting:

Take two slabs of Butter from the fridge and microwave them at 10 seconds bursts till they become soft to touch but haven’t melted yet. Beat them with an electric beater and add in sifted icing sugar  about 2 to 3 cups depending upon the temperature in your kitchen till it becomes creamy. Put in separate bowls and add in colors of your choice. I used a Wilton tip 2 D for the roses. If your icing is too soft just add in more Sugar as you go. Enjoy and do let me know how your cake turned out. You can also follow me on Instagram by the same name for new updates.
