  1. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and shortening. Gradually add 2 cups sugar; cream until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine milk and vanilla; set aside. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk mixture, beating just enough after each addition to keep batter smooth. Combine cinnamon and remaining sugar; sprinkle 1-1/2 teaspoons into a greased 10-in. tube pan. Pour 1/3 of batter into pan. Sprinkle half of remaining cinnamon/sugar; top with 1/3 of batter. Repeat with remaining cinnamon/ sugar and batter. Smooth top with spatula. Bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pan to a wire rack to cool thoroughly.

I have been making this recipe for years now. And I love it! I usually make a little extra of the cinnamon sugar mixture just because I like mine that way, but the recipe is perfect as is.

This recipe is good although my cake baked up a bit dry. I might add a bit of sour cream next time. If you are looking for a traditional German kuchen, this is not it. While it is very tasty, i...

It is absolutely perfect. Cinnamony and crumbly and moist. Perfect for breakfast with coffee. I recommend covering the cake with foil or putting it in plastic ware so it won't dry out.
