  • In a medium mixing bowl, take an egg, granulated sugar, oil, yogurt, milk and vanilla. Whisk it all using a hand whisk, to combine well. You can also make use of a hand beater.
  • Next add in all the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda and salt) into wet and fold only till flour disappears into the batter.

Caramel Brown Sugar Glaze:

  • On medium heat, melt brown sugar over stove in a small heavy bottom pan. Add a tbsp of water in it to ease the process.
  • As the sugar starts melting add butter and keep stirring with a whisk to avoid caramelization and sugar sticking to the pan. After it comes to a boil add in milk and turn the flame off.
  • Allow to cool don a bit and add powdered sugar to it. You can add a little more powdered sugar to reach desired consistency for your glaze.
  • Top on cooled cake. Don't wait for too long as this icing starts to set after a few minutes.


To bake this cinnamon cake in a regular Bundt Pan: Double this recipe. Baking temperature will be the same. Baking time will be around 50-60 minutes.
Yogurt: You can use regular or greek yogurt for this recipe. But use full fat yogurt for softer textured cake.
How to store Bundt Cake:
  • Bundt cake stays good at room temp, covered tightly for 3-4 days. For longer storage, refrigerate it up to a week.
  • You can also freeze glazed/unglazed cake for 3 months in ziploc or air tight containers. Thaw overnight in refrigerator or on counter top before serving.
