  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)

  3. In a separate small bowl, mix together the granulated sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and chopped nuts (if using).
  4. Pour half of the cake batter into the prepared bundt pan. Sprinkle half of the cinnamon-sugar mixture evenly over the batter.
  5. Pour the remaining batter over the cinnamon-sugar layer in the pan. Smooth the top with a spatula.
  6. Sprinkle the remaining cinnamon-sugar mixture evenly over the top of the batter.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  8. Allow the cake to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes, then invert it onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  9. Once cooled, dust the top of the cake with confectioners’ sugar if desired.
  10. Slice, serve, and enjoy the addictive deliciousness of this Crack Cake!
