Cake for breakfast!!

Once again I felt the need to bake. I knew that I would not have much time to bake, or even cook for that matter, next week when school starts back up again so I am taking advantage of every opportunity that I can now.

I am savoring a piece right now and it is very good. I will definitely make this recipe again. There is just a hint of cinnamon surrounding a nice moist sugary cake. Yum!

Yum ... so moist and sugary ... I can almost taste it! I'd like that for breakfast, too, with a nice cup of milk (and coffee, ha.)

It not only looks good, it was moist and with that sugary crusted finish, ... it was GREAT! As Amber's Mom I get to sample quite a few of her creations. Some of them straight from the oven and some as leftovers. Either way they are delectibly delicious.
