Cinnamon Sugar Cake

My family LOVES Amish Friendship bread.
However, it takes 10 days to get ready to make, and then keeps multiplying!  And, I use a TON of ingredients making it every 10 days.  So, I don't make it very often.

But, we do love cinnamon and sugar, I thought we'd try Cinnamon Sugar Cake to see if it would be an easy substitute.
1 box yellow cake mix
1 cup sour cream
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
3 Tbsp. melted butter
Cinnamon/Sugar Mix

Just mix the cake mix, eggs, sour cream, and vanilla together.
Sprinkle the top of the cake with half of the cinnamon/sugar mix.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.
My oven bakes hot, so mine was done in about 15.  It may need more or less time depending on how your oven cooks.

Since I used a decorative pan, I flipped the cake over once it had cooled slightly.
That way the top that I had sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar is now the bottom.
Once it's turned over, drizzle the top with melted butter and sprinkle generously with cinnamon and sugar.
It was so yummy!  Saxon thought it tasted like churros.  Bridger thought it tasted like cinnamon tortillas from Costa Vida (restaurant).  I though it tasted just enough like Amish Friendship bread (because of the sour cream and the cinnamon/sugar) to buy me some time before everyone is begging me to make the real thing again :)
