CINNAMON ROLL CAKE

This cinnamon roll cake first made its debut on the blog in 2012.  One of the first and BEST recipes here on the blog.  But the pictures just weren’t doing it any justice.  An gooey gooey Cinnabon cinnamon roll turned into a cake!?  You know this HAS to be good!  The best part is every time I make it, I have all of the ingredients on hand.  This is a warm cake that gets swirled with buttery cinnamon brown sugar and baked to perfection.  You put the glaze on the warm cake and it seeps into the brown sugar.  I am telling you, this cake is to die for.  We make it all of the time as a family and my kids beg me for it all of the time. We serve it right out of the oven and it is gone in a matter of minutes!

HOW DO YOU MAKE CINNAMON ROLL CAKE?

  • With an electric mixer or stand mixer, combine the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, milk, eggs, and vanilla.  Once that is combined, you slowly stir in 4 T melted butter.  Pour the batter into a greased 9×13 inch pan.
  • In a medium sized bowl, mix the softened butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and nuts if you are using them.  Drop evenly over the cake better in your 9×13 inch pan.  Use a knife to marble and swirl over the cake.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick comes out nearly clean from center.
  • Make the glaze by adding the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla to a medium sized bowl.  Whisk until smooth and drizzle over warm cake.  Serve warm or at room temperature.

CAN I ADD NUTS TO MY CAKE?

The recipe has an option to add nuts with the butter cinnamon brown sugar mixture.  You can add chopped pecans or even walnuts for an even better cake!

HOW DO I TELL IF THE CAKE IS DONE?

Stick a toothpick in the center and if it comes out clean it is done.  The cake will be slightly brown and the edges will slightly pull away from the sides.
