Cinnamon Pudding Cake

 This months "Cake Slice Bakers" selection was "Cinnamon Pudding Cake" from "cake keeper Cakes" by Lauren Chattman.
This was a cake was a BIG thumbs down for me! The cake just seemed to bland for me, and ended up being dry. I realized some of our group bakers were having trouble with it as well. I did bake the cake for 30 minutes, hoping I would over come the dryness of the cake. It didn't help. Plus my glaze ended up stuck on the pan when I inverted the cake on to the plate! I had one slice warm and was not impressed, then I had another slice cold with coffee, second slice was better, though I feel it was due to me dunking the cake into the coffee.
I honestly have no desire to redo the cake. I just hope next month's cake selection doesn't up being a disaster. If you would like the recipe please click here.

I was really dissapointed, the cake looked really good at this point.

I, too, hope next month's recipe is a bit more special.

I had the same problems that you did. I did like the flavors so I will try it again with some adjustments.

I thought it was OK, but it was nothing special. A good cake shouldn't need that much tweaking to make it taste and look fine, know what I mean?

Crossing my fingers for next month's cake!
