Cinnabon Cinnamon Roll Cake

31 01 2013

If you are like my house and have somebody who is totally obsessed with Cinnamon Rolls then this cake is for you. My husband loves cinnamon rolls and while homemade are amazing they take a lot of work that I am not willing to put in early in the morning. Bonus of this recipe was that it made such a big pan that we were also eating it as dessert in the evening. Not sure that fits into healthy eating but hey it was homemade so I controlled the ingredients, right?

I found this over at Six Sisters Stuff and to be honest I am kind of obsessed with their blog. They have some amazing recipes that are super easy and are right up my families alley. I can’t wait to try out a few more of their recipes.

Cinnabon Cinnamon Roll Cake

~ 3 cups flour

~ 1/4 tsp. salt

~ 1 cup sugar

~ 4 tsp. baking powder

~ 1 1/2 cups milk

~ 2 eggs

~ 2 tsp. vanilla

~ 4 Tbsp. butter, melted

~ 2 sticks (1 cup) butter, softened

~ 1 cup brown sugar

~ 2 Tbsp. flour

~ 1 Tbsp. cinnamon

~ 2/3 cups nuts (optional)


~ 2 cups powdered sugar

~ 5 Tbsp. milk

~ 1 tsp. vanilla

1. With an electric mixer, mix flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, milk, eggs, and vanilla. Once combined well, slowly stir in 4 Tbsp. melted butter. Pour batter into a greased 9 x 13 baking pan.

2. In a large bowl, mix the 2 sticks softened butter, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and nuts until well combined. Drop evenly over cake batter by the Tbsp. and use a knife to marble/swirl through the cake. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out nearly clean from center.

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