Pound Cake goes with a cup of coffee, like bread goes with butter. I have to stop myself occasionally from whipping up a cake just because.  If it is on my cake plate, then I need a cup of coffee.  If I have a cup of coffee, then I must have a piece of cake to go with it. Then, when the cake is gone, I feel like I should make another one to put on the cake plate.  I mean, it just looks so sad and empty sitting there cakeless.

A plain pound cake is a simple and delicious dessert. Now add 2 more easy steps and you have this STELLAR Cinnamon Roll Pound Cake. My house smells like a Cinnabon right now. It is such an amazing twist on a classic for the holiday season!

I whipped up my regular pound cake recipe.  After greasing and flouring the pan, I put 1/3 of the batter in the pan, and then sprinkled it with Cinnamon Sugar. I then did another layer of batter and cinnamon sugar, and a final layer of batter. For those that are keeping track it goes like this.

It is like a Double cinnamon sugar sandwich. Yum! This make 2 loaf pan size cake by the way. Which is trouble.  I always give one to a neighbor, or pop one in the freezer.
