Cinnamon Roll Cake

I love Cinnamon Rolls.  I always have and I always will.  The smell of Cinnamon Rolls is just as addictive to me.  I often crave Cinnamon Rolls and this cake can offer me the same flavors.  All the deliciousness of cinnamon rolls in a much simpler and quicker form.  What’s not to love?   This Cinnamon Roll Cake is perfect for dessert, brunch or even breakfast. 

Cinnamon Roll Cake

Cake:

3 cups flour
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 ½ cups milk
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup (1 stick) real butter, melted
Topping:
1 cup (2 sticks) real butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon cinnamon
3/4 cup chopped pecans, (optional) (always measure the nuts first then chop them)
 
Glaze:
2 cups powdered sugar
5 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
 
Directions:
 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
 
In an electric or stand mixer mix the flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, milk, eggs and vanilla. Once combined well, slowly stir in the 1/2 cup melted butter. Pour batter into a greased 9 x 13 inch baking pan. 

 
In a large bowl, mix the 2 sticks of softened butter, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and pecans until well combined. Drop evenly over cake batter by the tablespoonfuls 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. You want to make sure it’s done.

 
Place powdered sugar, milk and vanilla in a large bowl. Whisk until smooth. Drizzle over warm cake. Serve warm or at room temperature.

  1. I’m intimidated by making bread – but i am definitely going to make this! mmm, can’t wait!

  2. This looks delicious, definitely another one to try! I pinned it!

  3. do you think it would freeze well ?
    AND
    do you think it would be good as small loaves?

  4. I honestly have never tried to freeze it before, so I am not sure how it would work. And I would definitely try it in small loaves, just adjust your baking time.
