Lemon Cinnamon Loaf – Cake Mix Recipe

I like to bake but not always from scratch. Who has the time? If I am going to bake from scratch I usually set a day aside to do so. When I go shopping, I tend to pick up cake mixes when they are on sale. I usually have 3 or 4 boxes in the cupboard at one time. I rarely follow the recipe on the box unless we want cake or cupcakes. I like to create something quick and easy for a snack. I normally don’t buy Lemon cake mix, however I really wanted to try something different, so I created the Lemon Cinnamon Loaf.
