How to make Cinnamon Swirl Cake

Step 1: Mix the flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, milk, eggs, and vanilla extract in a large bowl. Mix until well combined.

Step 2: Gradually add in the melted butter and mix until incorporated.

Step 3: Pour the batter into a well-greased 9 x 13-inch pan. Or you can use a 9 x 9-inch pan if you prefer a thicker cake.

Step 4: Mix the softened butter, brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon in another bowl. Combine well.

Step 5: Pour on top of the batter and use a butter knife to swirl the topping.

Step 6: Place inside the oven and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. But if you are using a 9 x 9-inch pan, you should bake for about 50 minutes.

Step 7: Once done, remove the cake from the oven. Set aside.

Step 8: For the glaze, mix the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract until well combined.

Step 9: Drizzle the glaze over while the cake is still warm and let it sit for 15 minutes before cutting. Serve and enjoy!
