We all know those times when you want something just a little sweet but don't want to spend the day in the kitchen. Or maybe just want something small for a quick after school snack for the grandkids. My go to recipe is Cinnamon Flop. Quick to mix up from everyday kitchen staples then baked in my skillet sometimes drizzled with a little powdered sugar icing or just dusted with powdered sugar this is the perfect accompaniment to a cup of tea or coffee. But not so large that so much is left over that we can't eat it all.
1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 Tablespoon melted butter
1 cup milk
brown sugar, cinnamon, and butter cubed for top
Preheat oven to 350
Sift together flour, sugar and baking powder.
Add melted butter and milk and stir until well blended.
Grease or spray 2 9" inch cake pans. Divide mixture between the 2 cake pans.
Sprinkle top of batter with flour then brown sugar and then cinnamon.
Then push small chunks of butter into the dough. This makes holes and later gets gooey as it bakes.
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Cut into wedges and serve warm.
(As an after school snack I half this and cook in a 9 inch skillet then sprinkle with powdered sugar. I serve it to the grandkids warm with a glass of cold milk.)
