Heart-Attack In Waiting

After last week's healthy muffin recipe took us on a decidedly un-RDM-like twist, the cake I made today brings us right back to the heart-attack inducing, artery clogging, diabetic coma kind of recipes I can't go past. I saw this Snickerdoodle Cake over at Cooking is Medicine this morning, right smack bang in the middle of looking for something that Offspring #2 and I could bake today. It fill the bill nicely and, after a quick run to the deli after I realised I didn't have enough cinnamon, we got straight onto it. I messed up a few steps, in completely different ways to how Claire messed them up so I think it's fair to say this is a fairly forgiving recipe that turns out great whether you follow it properly or not. Mine did take longer to cook that the suggested time, closer to an hour and quarter.






This is seriously, deliciously unhealthy. Please, please, please don't make it every week. Or if you do you should probably increase your health insurance. But... as a once-in-a-while, take-a-plate-to-something, kind of cake it's a winner.






Hubby thought it was fab though upon first taste he did wonder how I'd managed to get the flour to hold all that sugar together!

Ha! I love the hubby's comment. :-) You had a really nice swirl there...mine didn't do that. I think I might not have used quite enough...I just eyeballed it! Glad you enjoyed it.

Love the nice swirl through the middle - between you and Claire, I'm thinking I need to make this one!
