There is nothing I would rather do on a rainy day than stay indoors and bake something sweet.
I love days like yesterday. I didn't have to go outside at all except to step onto the balcony to watch the rain or get some fresh air. Not that I needed fresh air since the apartment smelled like cinnamon and butter for most of the afternoon. I might be in love with a scent.
Jeff and I have both been craving something sweet lately, so I made this cinnamon chocolate chip sour cream cake. I think butter, sugar, vanilla, and egg could be a dessert on their own. But the details in this cake are what make it special. If you are like me, and don't have a mixer (yet), I promise you can still make this even though you have to mix the egg whites until they are fluffy. I did it with a whisk and my kayaking muscles.
