Cinnamon Roll Cake

Let me start off this post by thanking Cookin’ Up North for this…

I’ve never made cinnamon rolls, but I bet it’s not as easy as making a cinnamon roll cake.  Hence the reason why I made the cake and not actual rolls.  How can I pass up a chance to have dessert for breakfast?!


Cake mixture and a brown sugar cinnamon mixture is swirled into together.  I can’t forget to mention that there is butter in the brown sugar cinnamon mixture and it makes the cake moist and delicious.   Yummmm….butter.


Bake the cake in an oven that is preheated at 350 degrees.

Powdered sugar, milk and vanilla are mixed together to make a yummy glaze.


Pour the glaze over the warm cake.  Is your mouth watering?  Mine’s is.



Cinnamon Roll Cake


3 cup flour
1/4 tsp.salt
1 cup sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 cup milk
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup butter, melted


1 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp. flour
1 Tbsp. cinnamon

2 cup powdered sugar
5 Tbsp. milk
1 tsp. vanilla


Mix everything together except for the butter. Slowly stir in the melted butter and pour into a greased 9x13 pan. For the topping, mix all the ingredients together until well combined. Drop evenly over the batter and swirl with a knife. Bake at 350 for 28-32 minutes.

Using a fork poke holes in the cake and while warm drizzle the glaze over the cake.

I baked mines in two 8x8 pans.
