Nothing says fall like this gooey maple butter cake! This yummy fall cake gets its flavor from a dash of cinnamon and a generous drizzle of maple syrup.

  • Preheat oven to 350° F. In a medium bowl combine 1 cup flour, 3 Tbsp. granulated sugar, and the cinnamon. Use a pastry blender to cut in the 1/3 cup cold butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs and starts to cling together. Pat into the bottom of a 9-inch square baking pan. Bake 5 minutes or just until set.

  • In a large bowl beat the 3/4 cup softened butter with a mixer on medium 30 seconds. Add the 3/4 cup granulated sugar and beat until combined. Beat in egg and maple syrup. Add 1 cup flour and half-and-half alternately, beating on low after each addition just until combined (batter may appear slightly curdled). Pour into crust-lined baking pan.

  • Bake about 35 minutes or until the cake is nearly firm when you gently shake it. Cool in pan on a wire rack. If desired, sift powdered sugar over top and serve with additional maple syrup.

One of the worst dessert recipes I have made. It is grainy in texture and the flavor is actually mild, not "rich". Tastes a lot like a bland, store-bought sugar cookie made into a grainy cake.
