Cinnamon Roll Cake

This morning we have a big clean up at our church, inside and out.  I found this recipe on Pinterest this week and thought it would be a great time to try it out, I’m bringing it to church this morning to share with everyone helping at the clean up.  These were quick and easy to make.  They tasted great while still warm.  Now if I could only find the recipe for the cinnamon roll frosting that they used at Happiness Is restaurant in Byron Center all those years ago when I was young.  I had to settle for plain powdered sugar frosting.  Try these on a Saturday morning…you won’t be disappointed!  Enjoy!


Cinnamon Roll Cake:

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

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

Mix everything together except for the butter. Slowly stir in the melted butter and pour into a greased 9×13 pan. For the topping, mix all the ingredients together until well combined. Drop evenly over the batter and swirl with a knife. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.

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

While warm drizzle the glaze over the cake.
