i just couldn't help myself :) i just had to make the cinnamon roll cake

well, if you're hip to the baking scene i'm pretty sure you've seen this cake floating around recently... i present the devilishly delicious cinnamon roll cake... and like everyone else who baked this up, i have nothing but praise for this sweet and spicy goodie... it's light, tender, and satisfies that cinnamon roll craving without having to wait for the yeast to double and rise...
so... if you have a few free moments and you want to fill your belly with something really warm and delicious, get your tushie in the kitchen and bake this right away... you will not be disappointed :)

cinnamon roll cake (from the blog, the girl who ate everything):
cake ingredients:
3 cups flour
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 ½ cups milk
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup butter, melted

topping/ filling recipe:
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon cinnamon

1. preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9x13 inch baking pan
2. with an electric mixer or stand mixer mix the flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, milk, eggs and vanilla
3. once well combined, slowly stir in the 1/2 cup melted butter
4. pour batter into a greased pan

now for the topping/filling:
5. in a large bowl, mix the 2 sticks of softened butter, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon until well combined
6. drop evenly over cake batter by the tablespoonfuls and use a sharp edge of a knife to swirl the topping through the cake
7. bake for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick comes out nearly clean from center
8. cool, but best served warm :)

most people who made this cake glazed it, but i just couldn't resist the classic cinnamon roll topping... a slightly sweet cream cheese frosting... i mean come on, how do you not use cream cheese frosting on a cake like this... man... it was fantastic :)

happy baking everyone!


  1. I need this in my life pronto, wow - glorious

  2. Can you send that to Greece? Thank you.

  3. I make this but it's a cheater's version using a box of yellow cake mix. My recipe is insanely good so, I'm struggling to wrap my brain around how much BETTER a homemade one would be. :)


tell me what you're thinking :)
