Cinnamon Cake

This cake is a surprisingly simple recipe that is just up your alley if you love cinnamon.  Plain or topped with Cinnamon Buttercream frosting, it can't be beat.

  2 Cup sugar                                                            1 Tsp ground cinnamon
  1 Cup butter, softened                                             1/2 Tsp salt
  2 Cup All Purpose flour                                           12 Ounces Beer
  2 Tsp baking soda                                                    4 Ounces Dr Pepper
  2 eggs                                                                     1 1/4 Cup chopped pecans

In a mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar.  Add the eggs, one at a time, incorporating well after each.  Drop in the baking soda, salt and cinnamon, mix on low.  Slowly add the beer and soda, a little at a time, it will foam and look odd but don't worry. Add the flour and mix on medium speed. Toss in the nuts and quickly stir to distribute. Pour batter into a greased and floured 9x13" baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. Use a cake tester or toothpick to test for doneness. Let cool  completely before frosting.
