Cinnamon Roll Cake

As I mentioned earlier we had visitors for the weekend and one of them came with a recipe she wanted to make for us.  She had found this recipe for Cinnamon Roll Cake online, but couldn't remember the source (after some searching I believe it was originally from this blog).  Don't you love when visitors come complete with yummy recipes and a desire to bake.  This cake is incredible - so yummy - so not healthy, but so worth every bite.

Cinnamon Roll Cake Ingredients:
3 cups of flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cups milk
2 eggs
1/2 cup butter, melted

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp flour
1 tbsp cinnamon

2 cups icing sugar
5 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350F
Spray 9 x 13 glass pan
1. Mix together flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, milk, eggs, and vanilla.  Slowly stir in the melted butter.  Pour into pan.
2.  Mix 1 cup butter with brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon until well combined and creamy.  Drop evenly over batter by tbsp and use knife to marble/swirl through cake.
3.  Bake 35-45 minutes until toothpick is nearly clean.
4.  Mix icing sugar, milk, and vanilla together.  Drizzle over warm cake.  

Serve warm or room temperature and ENJOY!

Thanks Valerie.  It was delicious.
