Author Notes

My love for all things cinnamon-flavored and cinnamon-scented started in my early childhood, when my parents would buy boxes of Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal so that I could eat cereal before school. This evolved into an unhealthy obsession with putting cinnamon in every single baked good I make today, regardless of whether the recipe calls for it or not.

This particular recipe is adapted from one made by one of my favorite recipe developers, Eloise of Fitwaffle. I omitted eggs and decided to add some coffee into the batter as well as a hint of extra cinnamon and peanut butter into the glaze. This cake is so scrumptious, that I have to limit my family to only one slice per person in order for it to last more than one day! —Swara Bhatt
