Cinnabon Cinnamon Roll Cake

A cinnabon cinnamon roll turned into a cake!?  Ok you know that it HAS to be good!  I chose to make this tonight because I had all of the ingredients on hand.  It was really simple and oh man it was delicious!  It was warm and gooey and the glaze on top was so good!  I served it right out of the oven and it was gone in 5 minutes.  
*This cake is meant to be gooey like a cinnamon roll.  I suggest if you want it less gooey, cut the brown sugar, butter,cinnamon mixture to drop on top of cake in half.

Recipe from: Six Sisters

Ingredients:

3 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cup milk
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
4 T butter, melted
2 sticks (1 cup) butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1 T
cinnamon
2/3 cups nuts (optional)

Glaze:
2 cups powdered sugar
5 T milk

With an electric mixer or stand-up mixer, mix flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, milk, eggs, and vanilla. Once combined well, slowly stir in 4 T melted butter. Pour batter into a greased 9×13″ baking pan.
In a large bowl, mix the 2 sticks of softened butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nuts until well combined. Drop evenly over cake batter by the tablespoon and use a knife to marble/swirl through the cake. 


Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick comes out nearly clean from center. Place powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla in a large bowl. Whisk until smooth. Drizzle over warm cake. Serve warm or at room temperature.

    I can’t imagine using a cake mix! If you’ve never had a made from scratch cake, you re missing out!! I will never use a cake mix again! This looks awesome! Can’t wait to try it when there are more people than just me and my hubby here or I know I’ll eat way too much!

      Sorry I just switched to WordPress which allows me to have the print option on all of my recipes now. I have to go back and convert every recipe now and just haven’t gotten to this one. Sorry. :(

    Hello! Great recipe!!! I’ve made this 3 times now and it comes out delicious every time. I use a cream cheese frosting, though. :D My only suggestion is that it usually takes 40-45 minutes to bake. I’m sure every oven is different. Thanks for this!!!

    We have been cooped up in this house for 3 days due to an ice storm. I was craving not only something to do, but something sweet and Cinnabon never disappoints. I always have all this stuff on hand, so it was a no brainer. Only thing I did different was half the gooey part. Just had my first piece and it is delicious!

    I have this in the oven right now, smells great. I followed the recipe as the original so I may take the advice and bake it a lil longer to make sure the gooey part is baked through. It smells awesome.
