Soooo I may have gone overboard lately with baking. Good news is, I wasn’t the one to eat it all. Phew.
So I made the best cinnamon rolls I have ever made this weekend and then my house guest asked for more, but we were on a time crunch sooooo cinnamon roll cake happened instead! And yes, I do mean the best cinnamon rolls ever. They were fantastic.
But, cinnamon roll cake. Super easy to make and it really makes a lot. Warning: this is not a healthy dessert 🙂
- 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, meltedTopping:
- 1 c. butter, softened
- 1 c. brown sugar
- 2 Tbsp. flour
- 1 Tbsp. cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 350. Mix together everything except the butter. Add the butter and mix quickly then spread the batter in your 9×13 in greased pan. It won’t look like a lot but I promise- it rises!
2. For the topping mix it all together and drop on top of the batter evenly. With a knife, swirl the batter so the topping isn’t just sitting on the top.
3. Bake for 28-30 minutes. I have been experimenting with my icings recently and not using measurements. For this one I used a lot of powdered sugar, some vanilla and milk to get a thicker icing. Pour to your hearts content and enjoy!
