Cinnamon Espresso Cake with Cinnamon Whipped Cream


  • Cake: 6 TBL unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 2/3 cups cake flour
  • 2 tsp espresso powder
  • 1 tsp Spice for Life cinnamon
  • 2 tsps baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup cold or lukewarm espresso or very strong coffee.
  • Cinnamon Whipped Cream: 1/2 cup cold water
  • 2 tsp unflavored gelatin
  • 2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 TBL white sugar or Bourbon Vanilla sugar, or more to taste
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


For cake: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the sour cream, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract. Gradually add in the cake flour, espresso powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix in the espresso or strong coffee, stirring until batter is uniform and smooth.

Divide batter between the small round Flexipans or 9" rounds (greased), and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow to cool to room temperature before frosting.

For stabilized whipped cream: Chill mixing bowl and beaters for at least 15 minutes before using. Place water in a small microwave-safe bowl. Sprinkle gelatin over water and allow to soften 5 minutes.

Dissolve gelatin by microwaving for 3 minutes, stirring after every minute. Remove from microwave and let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes; gelatin must be liquid but not warm when added to cream.

Remove bowl and beaters from refrigerator and pour in cream, sugar, and vanilla extract. Beat together just until beater marks begin to show distinctly.

Add gelatin mixture to cream, pouring in a steady stream while beating constantly. Beat until stiff peaks form. Use immediately.
