The Creative Princess: Cinnamon Roll Cake

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!
