Cinnamon & Almond Loaf Cake | Snack Cake Recipe

I tried this loaf, after a long wait to get a loaf tin, it turned out super yummy and moist. I learnt that  Soured Cream keeps the sponge so moist. This loaf looks great when sliced. and if you prefer, you can substitute almonds with mixed fruits or nuts or your choice

If you are someone who loves cinnamon ~ cinnamon buns or cinnamon rolls you'd definitely love this one for sure. Its a great tea time snack with green tea/ chai :-)
Prep & cook time ~ 1hr 20 mins
Serves ~ 8-10
Recipe Source ~ Cake days


190 g unsalted butter, softened, if needed extra for greasing (I used parchment paper)
190 g plain flour, if needed extra for dusting
190 g caster sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
25 ml soured cream
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
70 g almonds

  • Pre-heat oven 170C/ 325 F, Gas mark 3, then grease the loaf with butter and dust with flour or simple cut out parchment paper to line the inside of the loaf tin
  • Using a hand-held electric whisk cream together the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy. Break the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition and scraping down the sides of the bowl to make sure all the ingredients are fully incorporated
  • Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt, then add to the batter in two batches and mix on a low speed until just incorporated. Finally, mix in the soured cream and vanilla essence
  • Spoon about 200g of the batter into a small bowl an stir in the cinnamon. Srir the almonds/ raisins into the remaining batter, then por this batter into the prepared loaf tin. Spoon the cinnamon batter on top and swirl the two together for a marbled effect.
  • Bake the loaf in the oven for 50-60 mins or until the sponge feels firm on top and a skewer inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean of any uncooked batter. Allow the loaf to cool a little before turning it out of the tin on to a wire rack to cool completely before you serve.
