Cinnamon Swirl Cake

Okay so there's a problem with this recipe. 
The problem is I go to bed with a full circle cake. 
The husband comes home.
I wake up, and the cake looks like this:

 So you'd think that's not really a problem.  I'll send him over to your house to eat all of your favorite treats.  It's all in good fun...I really do appreciate how he really enjoys what I make. 

I must say, this cake is pretty darn good.

Cinnamon Swirl Cake

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla

Cinnamon Sugar Layer
2/3 cup brown sugar
