  5. Transfer batter to the lined 8×8 baking pan and spread the batter out evenly.
  6.  Sprinkle with sea salt and extra cinnamon on top .
  7. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until knife inserted comes out clean and edges are golden brown. NoteBaking times vary, depending on what sugar/flour you use. If edges are starting to brown and the middle isn’t done, then cover the pan with foil and continue baking until center is fully baked.
