HOMEMADE CINNAMON ROLL CAKE

Ingredients

FOR THE CAKE:

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup salted butter (1 stick) melted

FOR THE CINNAMON FILLING:

  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) salted butter softened to room temp
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon

FOR THE GLAZE:

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 5 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

FOR THE CAKE:

  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Spray 9 x 13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray (I like the kind that has flour in it.) In a large bowl (or the bowl of your stand mixer), combine ingredients for cake (except melted butter).
  • While your mixer is running, slowly add the 1/2 cup melted butter. Mix just until combined (overmixing flour in baked goods can make it tough and rubbery.)
  • Spread this batter evenly into your baking dish.

FOR THE FILLING:

    • In a small bowl, combine all your filling ingredients: softened butter, brown sugar, flour and cinnamon. Stir until combined well.
    • Drop the cinnamon filling by spoonfuls onto the cake batter.
    • Take a butter knife and make swirly, marble-effect patterns all around the cake. Drag the knife through both the cinnamon and cake batter.
  • Bake the cake for about 35-40 minutes (it took about 40 minutes in my oven), until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.

FOR THE GLAZE:

  • Whisk together powdered sugar, milk and vanilla extract in small bowl.
  • Pour the glaze over the warm cake.
