Crack Cake

Crack Cake

When I saw the name of this cake on Pinterest I was curious to read why this was “Crack” cake.  I’ve seen Crack Brownies out there and even made our version of them (found here).  But cake?  I was curious.  And was I glad I looked!  Just reading the ingredients made me want to make it.  It has all kinds of deliciousness packed into it.

I think I cooked it a little too long.  I just put an hour on the timer and walked away.  I’d suggest checking it after about 50 minutes.

Pour over the glaze when the cake is hot.

And let it sit until it’s completely cooled.

 Flip it over onto a cake plate and devour!

Crack Bundt Cake

It taste like a Snickerdoodle cake with all the cinnamon goodness in it.  And it was so moist.  We loved it!

Note – next time I’ll make sure the sugar is a little more dissolved before I pour it over the hot cake.

Thank to It’s the Little Things for this keeper recipe.
