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}

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)

Topping:
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)

Glaze:
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!

Enjoy!

FROZEN Hot Chocolate

I am sure by now, most of you know that FROZEN the Movie is coming to theaters THIS WEEK (the 27th to be exact)! I am so excited!! My girls saw some of the FROZEN merchandise while we were at Walt Disney World and that is all they could talk about.....for days! It has been a rough school year for both of the girls so far. Mads is adjusting to being in the upper elementary, was dealing with a bully and gets super frustrated with math (even though she is really good at it). MG is adjusting to actually being in school, went through a time of having accidents at school and she just misses her mommy. To celebrate Mads good grades and MG going a month accident free, I decided to treat the girls with a few fun new toys and some hot chocolate. Once I heard that FROZEN merchandise was available at Walmart, I ran to stock up. While I was there, it hit me! I could have #Frozenfun with the hot chocolate and make FROZEN Hot chocolate! I just knew the girls would love it! I was k

Le Cellier - Chedder Cheese Soup Recipe Review

I first talked about this soup here .   I have to admit, was not real eager to try this soup.  I can not stand the taste of beer.  PERIOD!  It doesn't take much in a recipe for me to be able to taste it.  With that being said, the soup wasn't bad.  I would try it with ginger ale next time though. Before I tell you what I thought of the soup I need to be fair and tell you about some changes I made to the recipe. First, the recipe tells you to cook the bacon just to render out the fats, not to make crispy.  I did not render out enough of the fats and in fact next time, I would cook the bacon until it IS crispy.  I don't like limp bacon, I like my bacon extra crispy. Second, I TOTALLY forgot to cook down the onions and celery before adding the flour!  Ummmm......ooops! So my bacon was limp and my veggies were crispy!  HAHA! Next, I am not on a budget to be able to purchase "Aged White Cheddar" so good ol Yellow Sharp Cheddar it was! I did NOT add one tablespoo

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
