½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

– Combine the wet and dry ingredients and gently mix until thoroughly combined.

– Transfer the cake batter to the prepared tin and bake for 90 minutes. Check the centre of the cake with a skewer – if it comes out clean, the cake is ready. If not, bake for a further 20 minutes and then check again.
