Cinnamon Coffee Bundt Cake

July 6, 2014

I made this one morning while D was sleeping in late. It’s easy to pull together, and a slice is the perfect complement to a morning cup of coffee. I baked it in a Bundt pan, but this would be great in a 9×9 baking dish as well. Just use what you have on hand!
