Easy Moravian Cake

This was my grandmother’s favorite cake. It is very easy to make and can be done in a hurry. The cake has a light citrus flavor and is delicious with coffee or tea.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder and shortening until crumbly.

3. Add sugar, eggs and milk to the bowl and mix thoroughly.

4. Grease two 8-inch round or square baking pans with butter or cooking spray. Break 1/2 cup of butter into small pieces and dot the top of each cake with them evenly.

5. Sprinkle 1/4 cup brown sugar on top of each cake along with a light sprinkling of cinnamon over the top if desired (optional).

6. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean when removed from cakes
