Cinnamon Sugar Pound Cake Bites take pound cake and transform it into little bites of sweet, toasty, cinnamon-y deliciousness!
If you love pound cake, get ready to fall in love all over again with these Cinnamon Sugar Pound Cake Bites. With just a few simple steps, you can turn plain pound cake into these sweet, cinnamony treats. And you may never want plain pound cake again!
Well, that last part is definitely an exaggeration. I can’t imagine ever not wanting a hefty slice of pound cake. But these Cinnamon Sugar Pound Cake Bites are so easy to make yet so good that I find them completely irresistible! All you need to turn your pound cake into these beauties is a little butter, a skillet, and some cinnamon sugar.
For these little guys, you can use your favorite loaf-size pound cake recipe or even a store-bought pound cake if you’re short on time. My go-to is this Cream Cheese Pound Cake. I make a half recipe in a standard loaf pan to make these but a full recipe is great for feeding a crowd.
Feel free to make adjustments to the cinnamon sugar mixture in the recipe if you’d like to dial the cinnamon up or down.

Try substituting an equal amount of Fall Spice Blend for the cinnamon if you want a little seasonal twist on them.
While these are crazy easy to make, I highly encourage you to be organized about making them. I place the cut cake on one side of my stovetop and a pan lined with waxed paper on the other for the finished pieces. I also place the bowl of cinnamon sugar on the side of the pan closest to the stovetop. That way you can work from one side to the other. It really makes the process go quite smoothly.
Tongs are your friend, too, for moving all those little pieces of pound cake from one stage to another. Work in batches, toasting only as many pieces at a time as your bowl of cinnamon sugar can comfortably hold. Once you’ve worked all the way through the process once or twice, you’ll be a pro!
I can tell you that these Cinnamon Sugar Pound Cake Bites are an amazing crowd-pleaser. Set out a bowl of them, and you’re likely to see that bowl empty fairly soon. Good thing it’s easy to make more!
