Why I Love This Recipe

Found this recipe in Rachel Ray's magazine, but altered the caramel topping.... the one she listed turned hard and was unpleasant to eat after it's cooled. So I changed it up. Enjoy!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 1/4 cup flour
2 Tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
2 Eggs, at room temp

In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until smooth. Whisk in oil and vanilla.
