This easy and insanely moist Cinnamon Toast Crunch Bundt Cake starts with a cake mix and has a cinnamon-sugar swirl and cream cheese frosting!
I made you a cake! Since I graduated this weekend I thought it was appropriate. I would’ve made ice cream too but my brain is fried from several long years of schooling and focusing on the cake was about as much as I could handle so cake it is. Ice cream another time okay?
Thanks for understanding.
But it’s a good one! This is not any old cake. This is a special graduation celebration-worthy cake with a cinnamon swirly inside. Do you love cinnamon toast crunch cake as much as I do? Good! Because I baked that yummy stuff right into this cake, right in the batter.
Pretty awesome right?
And then I covered the cake with cream cheese vanilla frosting and topped it with a boatload more of cinnamon toast crunch cereal.
DELICIOUSNESS at it’s finest.
I have a habit of eating leftover cake for breakfast the next day so this whole cereal in and on the cake thing is my way of making a legitimate breakfast cake.
Happy graduation!! To you, from me. The grad. 🙂
Cinnamon Toast Crunch Bundt Cake
This easy and insanely moist cinnamon toast crunch bundt cake starts with a cake mix and has a cinnamon-sugar swirl and cream cheese frosting!
- 1 box white or yellow cake mix
- 1 small (3.4 ounce) box instant vanilla pudding (unprepared)
- 1 cup plain greek yogurt (may sub sour cream)
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 cup warm water
- 1 cup cinnamon toast crunch cereal, crushed
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/4 cup cinnamon
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- 2 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 3 teaspoons vanilla
- milk, as needed
- optional: 1 cup cinnamon toast crunch cereal, for topping
Preheat oven to 350 and heavily grease a bundt pan.
First prepare the cake batter. In a large bowl combine cake mix, vanilla pudding mix, greek yogurt, vegetable oil, eggs, and warm water and mix well. Stir in crushed cinnamon toast crunch cereal.
Prepare the cinnamon swirl by whisking together the white sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
Pour 1/3 of the cake batter into the pan. Sprinkle half of the cinnamon-sugar mixture on top of the batter. Next, spread another third of the batter on top of the cinnamon-sugar. (Pro Tip: grease a rubber spatula with cooking spray or butter, the batter will spread easier!) Sprinkle remaining cinnamon sugar on top of the batter, then top with the last third of the batter.
Bake for 40-45 minutes until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool for at least 30 minutes before turning cake out onto a cooling rack.
After cake has completely cooled, prepare the icing. Mix together cream cheese, vanilla, and powdered sugar. Add milk 1 tablespoon at a time until a pourable consistency is reached. Drizzle over cake, then top with cinnamon toast crunch cereal if desired. Store in airtight container at room temperature until ready to serve.
