Sock It To Me Cinnamon Cake


This Sock it To Me Cinnamon cake Recipe is a different twist than any I have ever made. There are different ways to make it and you can also use gluten free mix if you need to. These can be prepared from scratch or made from a box mix. You can increase the cinnamon taster or you can leave it completely out! If you leave it out, it is no more a cinnamon cake mix! Kinda defeating the purpose huh? I know this sounds kind of wacky but some folks like everything but the cinnamon or are maybe allergic to it. It is a good cake either way! I personally love cinnamon in cakes, pies, cupcakes, etc.

The first recipe I will give you is a box recipe and it of course will be pretty much self explanatory. In most recipes of this nature you just follow the box instructions but this requires a little more effort.
