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.
