Recipe Box # 25 Cinnamon Cake

There is this small cookbook called The Complete Yom Tov Cookbook which has a number of good recipes.  Yom means Day and Tov means Good.  Good day and for the Jewish people Yom Tov refers to a holiday.  The recipes, in this book are meant to be used in three of our major holidays.

I was looking through it, since I hadn't used it, in a while.  Hubby wanted a cake, easy to cut and neat to eat.  The cinnamon cake sounded right to me.  I have mentioned before, hubby likes plain cakes, especially with nuts.  They are not necessarily exciting to make but they are usually easy to put together.  I lose some of the creativity while I do save time.

Cinnamon Cake


3 eggs

1 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup orange juice
2 1/2 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking power
1/4 teaspoon salt

Crumb Topping
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 tablespoon margarine
2 teaspoons flour
1/3 cup walnuts, chopped 


Beat eggs until light, then add sugar and beat again. Stir in oil, vanilla, and orange juice.

Blend in flour, baking powder, and salt. 

Pour half of mixture into a greased Bundt pan or 10-inch tube pan. 

In a separate bowl, combine the ingredients for the topping. Sprinkle half the topping over the cake in the pan. Pour remaining half of batter into pan and sprinkle remaining half of topping on top. 

(I did not put anything on the top.  Can someone tell me how to do this, when in a bundt pan, the top is on the bottom?)

Bake in a 350° oven for about 50 minutes until golden brown on top.

 Looking back:
