Cinnabon Cinnamon Roll Cake

Yes, the title just makes you drool doesn’t it?  All I can say is run, don’t walk, to the market and get the ingredients if you don’t have them but chances are you do have them so you HAVE to make this.  It is SO good…you will not be disappointed!  It is all ooey, gooey, and when served warm just makes your gums melt!!  Had to share this gem of a recipe…ENJOY!



3 cups of flour
¼ tsp salt
1 cup of sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1 ½ cup of milk
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
4 T butter, melted
2 sticks (1 cup) butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
2 T flour
1 T cinnamon
2/3 cup nuts (optional) *I used finely chopped pecans


2 cups powdered sugar
5 T milk
1 tsp vanilla

With an electric mixer or stand-up mixer, mix 3 cups of flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, milk, eggs, and vanilla.  Once combined well, slowly stir in 4 T melted butter.  Pour batter into a greased 9x13 baking pan.

In a large bowl, mix the 2 sticks of softened butter, brown sugar, 2 T flour, 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.

*NOTE:  I would like to try this with a cream cheese type drizzle too!

Here are my pics of this wonderful creation.  I am not good photographin objects…give me people and I am good…objects I need to work on for sure!! LOL 
Very HAPPY baking!!
