nom nom, this is heaven in a cake

cinnamon roll cake

i found this recipe via pinterest last week and had to try it.  oh my god! we loved it!  mark's favorite cake was chocolate until he tried this.  in a phone call the other day i even heard him telling his friend bill how good this cake was.  he's hoping i make it again real soon. pssst, just ignore the probable calorie content.

3 c. flour
1/4 tsp.salt
1 c. sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 c. milk
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. butter, melted

Mix everything together except for the butter. Slowly stir in the melted butter and pour into a greased 9x13 pan.

1 c. butter, softened
1 c. brown sugar
2 Tbsp. flour
1 Tbsp. cinnamon

For the topping, mix all the ingredients together until well combined. Drop evenly over the batter and swirl with a knife. Bake at 350 for 28-32 minutes.

2 c. powdered sugar
5 Tbsp. milk
1 tsp. vanilla

While warm drizzle the glaze over the cake.


  1. I'm going to have to try this--cinnamon rolls are probably my favorite thing on the planet.


    1. i was impressed. scared me a little at first with all the sugar and butter, but oh so good!

    2. Don't be scared. You only get to live once
