Anyway, I found this recipe over at Redfly Creations and knew immediately that Randal would love this, and as I had some buttermilk in the fridge I needed to use up I gave it a go, bundt pan and all.
This is a really simple recipe to make, and we both enjoyed the end result, and a few days later we used the last of it to make french toast, which Randal loved but as I am not a fan of sweet french toast (I much prefer mine with baked beans and ketchup!) I left that for Randal.
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
2 cups sugar
2 cups buttermilk
4 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
2/3 cup sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
In a small bowl mix together the 2/3 cup sugar and the cinnamon, set aside.
In the bowl of an electric mixer cream together the butter and the 2 cups of sugar. Add in the eggs. Add the milk, flour, and baking soda and mix until combined. Put half of the batter into a greased pan (be it bundt or bread) and top with 3/4 of the cinnamon mixture. Add the remaining batter and bake for 45 to 50 minutes. Once the cake has cooled, remove from pan and top with the remaining cinnamon sugar.
