Cinnamon Roll Cake

Doesn't that look AMAZING?
Please refrain from licking your computer screen! 

I first saw this recipe on Pinterest from Cookin' Up North who found it at Life as a Lofthouse, who found it at who knows where.  It really doesn't matter to me where they found it from.  The only thing that matters is I found it and it is yummy to my tummy!

This is my new go to when asked to bring dessert somewhere.  The cake is moist and buttery with a gentle swirl of cinnamon and sugar and butter, blanketed with a beautiful layer of ever so yummy vanilla glaze.

I recently made it for a bake sale.....I could have sold it by the pan full rather than piece by piece.  I could have charged $30 per pan, instead of  $1.50/slice.  You know what?  I think I would have sold 40 pans full!

Christmas is coming up, if you are tired of taking the same 'ol, same 'ol {and I won't be going to the same party} may I suggest taking this?  This would also make a yummy breakfast, served warm of course.
Now, to the best part...the recipe...

{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
1/2 Cup Butter (melted)

1 Cup Butter (softened)
1 Cup Brown Sugar
2 Tbsp. Flour
1 Tbsp. Cinnamon

Mix all cake ingredients together, except for butter.  Once mixture is mixed slowly stir in melted butter.  Pour mix into a greased 9x13 pan.
For Topping: Mix all ingredients together until well blended.  Drop by the spoonful over the batter.  Swirl topping mix into the cake with a knife (note, don’t over swirl).  Bake at 350 for 28-32 min. (note, I have to cook mine for closer to an hour).

 (this is why you do not over swirl, it looks like a mess)

2 Cups Powdered Sugar (I like to sift mine)
5 Tbsp Milk
1 tsp Vanilla (I use 1/2 tsp vanilla and 1/2 tsp maple extract last time and it was REALLY good)

Mix ingredients together and drizzle over cake while it is still warm.

Yes, it does look awful but, it tastes AMAZING!

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f

Granny's Flitters

I love my family!  There are so many things I love about each person and also about all of us as a whole.  One of the things I love about my family is we love traditions. Today I am going to share just one of the many traditions we have.....FLITTERS! To me when I think of comfort food, I think of Flitters.  It was a special morning to wake up to the delicious smell of flitters frying in the morning.  It is one smell that every time I smell I am brought right back to childhood and great memories. I am not really sure where the name "flitters" came from or if someone just made it up.  I can tell you how it got started though! My Great, Great Uncle Orville's mom (Grandma Cook) baked bread.  On the days she would make extra bread dough she would invite all of her grandkids over for a flitter night.  She would make her bread and then the extra dough she would roll out, cut into strips and fry up for the kids to enjoy.  That tradition was then passed to my
