Baked Sunday Mornings- Sunday Night Cake

Okay, so we post on Sunday mornings and this is called a Sunday Night Cake. It was actually made on Saturday morning so I'll call it a Saturday Morning Cake! It is so easy, peasy and so delicious that you can really make it 1-2-3 in the morning and have it for breakfast if you want.

This is the kind of recipe I love- easy to put together and very adaptable to a few little changes here and there to make it your "own". It calls for sour cream- didn't happen to have any, but did have a container of buttermilk that needed to be used. I substituted the same amount and I'm sure you could use yogurt as well.
I played around with the pan too, using these adorable little mini loaf pans I found. I have a problem going into stores that sell paper goods- I can't walk out empty-handed! Better have them on hand than have to look for something at the last minute. These are great for gift giving or if you just want a little cake and not have leftovers.
The original recipe calls for a chocolate frosting. I'm sure it would be great, but I preferred without and just a dusting of powdered sugar. The frosting sounds delicious and for another occasion, I would give it a try.
This cake has delicious cinnamon undertones- not overwhelming at all. Next time I will play around with the spices and see what interesting tastes I can come up with.
Even if you don't consider yourself a baker, I highly recommend trying this recipe. It's great to freeze and pull out at a moment's notice, and most important, easy and really yummy. I had a hard time stopping at just one piece!
You can find the recipe here.


  1. Yours looks great. I love how adaptable this cake is.

  2. What a great idea to make them into mini loaves. And without the frosting it is more loaf like. Looks wonderful.

  3. I agree...this cake lends itself to lots of creativity. You might want to try the frosting's quite good.

  4. So smart - I wish I would have done mini-loaf pans and no frosting. How cute!

  5. Your cake looks really nice! If you love chocolate be sure to try the frosting sometime. It is really good!

  6. I would definitely try this again as a coffee cake/loaf without the frosting... Yours looks yummy!

  7. I just went to the Container Store for the first time last week - it was truly dangerous! I'm a geek for that kind of stuff but I did manage to control myself. The thing is, it's so great to have just the right pan/bag/box, etc. I like your choice of small loaves.

  8. Love how the cake in the loaf pans, great idea!


Thanks for reading! I'd love to hear from you!
