Cinnamon Roll Cake


I found this recipe at Life as a Lofthouse and couldn't wait to try it. I finally got a chance to make it last week and it's all it's cracked up to be!

 I loved every bite...warm and delicious...just like a 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

Topping:
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 9x13 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 for 28-32 minutes.

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


While warm drizzle the glaze over the cake.

Like everyone that has seen this recipe, I couldn't wait to make it! Well it was a disaster!! Very gooey..obviously didn't bake it long enough. Only 28 min. Looked done on the top and around the edges.Didn't want to over bake. The cinnamon mixture was very hard to swirl with the knife. Wish I had read other posts before making. Got a lot of GOOD input for next time.

If this cake tastes even half as good as it looks, then it will be over-the-top! I can't wait to try it. Thanks so much.

AWillman said...

Made this in a cookie sheet and found I could cut the amount of topping by 1/2 and it tastes just as good!

Therese said...

In the oven cant wait to try it.

Daphne said...

I too found this on Pinterest. I made it yesterday and everyone in my family LOVES it! It is SO good, moist and yummy. My husband said he liked it better than actual cinnamon rolls which is great since this is much easier to make! :) I don't love powdered sugar anything though so I mixed a package of cream cheese with some milk, vanilla and sugar until I could spread it and that's what I topped mine with. Thanks so much for a great recipe!

Nicole said...

This was fantastic! I took it for a chili cookoff last week and it was GONNNNEEE! The only thing I'd change is the amount of glaze.. I only used about half and that seemed like a lot.. YUM!

Can't wait to make this! Found it on Pinterest...looking forward to following the blog of a fellow Minnesotan! I recently started blogging...bop over and take a peak when you get a chance!

Denice said...

Another fab Pinterest find. I see only one other person assembled it the night before. I DID TOO! YES IT CAN BE DONE!!!!!! Did not bring it to room temp just threw it straight from fridge to pre-heated oven and it was done in 35 minutes. Yes the topping might be hard to swirl but SWIRL IT INTO THE CAKE!!! Don't be scared. I even added chopped walnuts and did the glaze the night before too. A DELISH KEEPER!!!!

Vesta said...

The question I have seems to be one most have asked also: Is the topping dropped by teaspoons onto the cake mix. I coulod not swirl it either and used too knives to try and cut it through the cake; it is baking now. Thanks

I just tasted this cake...it is AWESOME! I usually half 1st attempt recipes, so that's what I did here...very simple, 8x8 pan...everything else exactly as presented here.
I found the batter to be a strange consistency, but since I regularly make cinnamon rolls...I found it to be very similar to a dough...a very runny dough...the end result is divine!
The topping margerine/butter is to be softened, not melted...that may be the problem for those of you who found it too runny. I found it easy enough to swirl with short, quick strokes across the surface of the dough/batter...the topping then was very evenly distributed.
I found it perfect as written...thanks so much!
first discoverd..via pintrest.

Michelle said...

I have no words... this cake was so easy to put together, and melted in my mouth. Really though, what did I expect after realizing THREE STICKS OF BUTTER were part of the equation? It was then that I realized nothing could go wrong. Not one thing.

Anonymous said...

I've been drooling over this recipe/picture for weeks. I wanted to make it immediately when I saw it on Pinterest, but didn't have enough butter (because it takes HOLY COW three sticks!!). The cake is super easy to make. I ended up having to bake mine for about 36 minutes, but everyone's oven is different. The cinnamon mixture that you swirl into the batter is pretty thick/chunky, so it takes a minute to get it all swirled in. But, in the end it is SO worth the effort. The entire cake tastes like the inside of a cinnamon roll (my favorite part!) I'm going to have to dole out some pieces to friends tomorrow so that I don't eat the whole thing and end up having to go shopping for new pants! YUMMY!!!

Robin said...

Made 4 of these yesterday for two different events...it was a HUGE success! Thanks for sharing it!

Jennifer said...

Wow. Absolutely AMAZING!!!!

Rachel said...

Mmm, I JUST pulled this out of the oven, and it tastes fantastic! I think next time I might add some toasted pecans just to change it up, but it's delicious just as it is!

Cindy said...

I made this this morning and was pleasantly surprised! I used 1/2 c of butter for the topping and buttermilk in place of milk (what I had onhand). I will definitely be making this again. It was light and sweet and pure bliss. Thank you!

Doubled the recipe and am in wonderful amazement how good this cake is! My son, who is a salty craving kind of guy, woke from his slumber from the intense butter smell wafting in under his door and asked what I was baking. At first bite, he ummmed and said this cake was as good as it smelled. He even hid, from the rest of us sweets eaters, a piece for breakfast in the morning. Yay, my baking has finally won a spot in his heart and palate-so KEEPING this recipe in my secret book :) Although, I've shared on Pinterest for others.

I made this at work today for breakfast and everyone loved it! My boss, while eating his second piece, started coming up with variations. So, I am going to make it again tomorrow and add apples to it! I can't wait til tomorrow!

OMG!! I saved this recipe from Pinterest probably over 6 months ago, but just finally got around to making it for my step-son's birthday this past week! It is absolutely awesome! I had 3 pieces. It's probably a good thing I didn't make it before now, because I'd probably be 50 lbs heavier! 3 sticks of butter! OMG! So yummy!

Just made this, and Oh my goodness..My kitchen smells like freshly baked cinnamon rolls. Cake is super yummy... Will make again and again, as it a Super simple recipe. Would be a wonderful recipe for a starter recipe for children.

Winnie said...

I can't wait to try this recipe. I am glad I found your blog!

Sen said...

Made this this morning when my children wanted (demanded) something new for breakfast. I skipped the glaze, used 1/2 the butter for the brown sugar portion and sprinkled with a little nutmeg instead of using any cinnamon. I wasn't sure they were going to eat it but man, was I wrong! They liked that it wasn't normal cinnamon rolls. One small piece each filled everyone up. Thanks for the great recipe! I'm going to try this with blueberries next time!

Sarah von "How I met your Papi" said...

I found this recipe on pinterest and tried it today. Well, its easy to make, and actually real good, but WAY to sweet for our german tounge :) Next time i´ll try it again and only take half of the sugar. I think it´s perfect then. Thank you for this recipe :)

made this recipe this morning, it was to die for! Definitely a make aain.

Michelle - Sweet P's said...

After a long weekend of baking I was short on pans, so I used a 9" round cake pan and cut the recipe in half. Finding that it would be difficult to swirl in the topping, I put it into a disposable piping bag, snipped off the tip, and swirled it on the top that way. I also put the glaze into a piping bag - worked great!

Mmmmm soo yummy! Lol I saw it on pinterest and saved the page on my computer and I finally got around to making it and it is Delicious everyone loved it thanks for all the wonderful recipes :)

Tashina said...

I also found this recipe on pinterest a few days ago and knew I had to make for my family's July 4th morning. It is in the oven now and smells so good! Very easy to make, too, but I cut the butter in half in both the cake and filling part and added a touch of Kahula to the glaze (big coffee lovers in this house!) I also did the cake in a metal bundt pan and added a few more minutes to the cooking time. Not sure if they're needed, but it looks absolutely amazing right now!

Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful recipe! I'm positive it'll become a household favorite. :)

I have never commented on a recipe before because I usually feel like everyone else covers what I want to say, but this recipe was beyond phenomenal!!!! Just as good as cinnamon rolls? No, THEY ARE TEN TIMES BETTER!! This cake was perfect in EVERY way. All the other comments didnt seem to convey just how incredible this was, so I hope everyone understands that this is an explosion of taste buds with every bite! Not only is it amazing warm, but when it is cold it tastes just as good! Thank you SOOOOOO much for this recipe.

I made this today and my kids couldn't wait to taste what smelled so good. I added 8oz of cream cheese to the glaze reciepe and it was wonderful. My "topping" kind of move all to the middle and some went to the corners of the cake, but it just made it more wonderful with the moist cinnamon flavor. Thanks, this will be my new potluck reciepe.

Made this for Saturday morning breakfast and it is delicious, plus your kitchen will smell heavenly while it's baking. I think next time I will try adding pecans to the topping, and because I used Mexican vanilla, the glaze was caramel-colored, I'll use clear vanilla instead for color.

I think the last comment was funny... they obviously hadn't read ALL the comments. Almost all the comments are good, but there are also those that didn't like it too. You published both.
Constructive criticism is good, but as we all know, if you can't say anything nice, then don't say anything at all.

Personally, I tried this and can honestly say it's wonderful!

I made this tonight and I will be cutting the butter quantity in 1/2 for the topping AND the batter. It's just too saturated in butter. Tasty, but needs some tweaking.

lalamcphee said...

I made this today. My batter was quite thick and hard to cut in the cinnamon filling. It did take about 40-45 minutes to cook completely using a glass 9x13. I had to spoon pools of butter off of the top. I thought the end result was crumbly, the edges were hard but it tasted fine. My husband liked it and I think with some tweaking (and way less butter) this could be a hit.

Rebekah said...

I was so thrilled to try this out. I was disappointed, though. I followed the recipe to the letter, other than letting it bake longer (because it was gooey in the middle) and adding less milk to the glaze.

It does NOT taste good, it does not look good, and the texture is way off. (FTR, I opened my baking soda the day I made this. I also agree with another poster, too much baking soda.)

But, I just didn't even like it enough to try and tweak it to make it work for me. I'm floored by all the positive reviews. I just don't get it. :) How ours could be so drastically different.

Just tried out this recipe. It wasn't even out of the oven 30 seconds and we already dug into it!! It is amazing! However, next time ill use less of the topping because it was very thick and 28 minutes was way to short. We had it in the oven for 45 minutes.

This cake is amazing!

My son needs to take a baked good for a Superbowl fundraiser his youth group is having, so I let him choose something that I had pinned on Pintrest. He saw your Cinnamon Roll Cake, and had to have it!

For a trial run, I halved the recipe and it was a huge hit! It was delicious warm, about 30 minutes out of the oven, but I was concerned about how it would be cold. To my surprise, we think it is even better fully cooled.

For those of you that have commented that there is too much baking soda, you are correct because this recipe does not call for baking SODA--it calls for baking POWDER. There is a huge difference between the two.

The only change I made was to add 1 tsp of cinnamon to the batter. I also sifted all of the dry ingredients before mixing, and I did not "cut" the topping into the cake batter, but swirled it on top of the batter.

I have a feeling this is going to become a highly requested desert.
Thank you so much for this delicious and decadent cake recipe.

Vicky said...

In the oven baking now. It really was quick to make, and I'm not a fast whipper-upper. Only took about 20 minutes to get in the oven (including getting all equip. and ingredients out). Smelling good now! I only had one egg but batter looked and tasted like normal cake batters so I guess it'll be fine :)

This tasted more like pancake batter than cinnamon rolls. Really needed some "cinnamon". Not a fav.

Yuuuuuummm!!! I live in Denver so increased temp to 375 and let it cook 10 min longer. Also added an extra egg. Delish and trying not to eat the whole pan myself!

I got this recipe off pinterest and ohh myy, wonderful, I made them before church. I did add some butter to the frosting mix and yum :) thank you

natjocur said...

Family LOVES this- adjustments I've made: cut butter for cake in half. Cut 1/4 butter from topping, cut brown sugar in half and add 1/4 cup splenda brown sugar. Cut 1 cup of powered sugar from glaze and add 4 oz of light cream cheese. I've made it the way it's written and this way; family prefers with changes. for gooey center issues- I cover the edges of my pan with tinfoil whenever I bake cakes or brownies. Remove the last 5 minutes, when the middle seems set. We like ours a little underdone. I used a glass pan in an electric oven for 30 min, removed tinfoil at 25. Perfect consistency all the way through.

Thank you so much for posting such a yummy recipe!

Another happy cinnamon bun cake maker! I really like this cake, and will be making it again. I will try cutting the butter for the topping, from 2 sticks to 1 stick, and I may add walnuts or pecans. The taste is just wonderful the way it is, though!
I do have one question: What is the purpose of slowly adding the melted butter to the batter, as opposed to the usual cake method of creaming the butter with the sugar? Is it a texture thing?
Just curious. Thanks!

Hi came across this a little while ago. We lived in the USA for a while in the 90's and since coming back to South Australia, we've always missed Cinnabons (made a good clone a few times too). We're just sitting here waiting for the Cinnamon Roll Cake to finish baking...we are really, really looking forward to it. Thanks for sharing.

Michael D said...

Definitely run to the kitchen and make. I do suggest cutting down the butter in the topping, it makes more of a butter paste than a crumbly topping. I think I will cut the butter in half. I had to bake 1 hour in the 9x13 glass pyrex pan in a gas oven. It was really gooey/soft in the middle at 30 minutes, so I kept adding time until the toothpick came out clean and it didnt jiggle anymore, even though it was a bit more brown, IT IS GREAT!!! I also will cut down on the frosting, too much for us and I added almond extract in the recipe vs vanilla. YUMMYY! a keeper!!

My husband thanks you from the bottom of his little heart. He finally arrived home..... grumpy.... delayed flight, tired and hungry.... and he acquired an attitude because for dinner I fixed a salad with sliced chicken breast. He wanted 'real food'... grumpy man food. I showed him the pan of cake and so sweetly explained that you have to have a healthy dinner because guess what is for snack. Forty five minutes later, he was happily snoring in his recliner and I was turning the volume up on the TV. These are delicious and make your teeth hurt sweet. A definite new, favorite recipe. Thanks.

This is an amazing cake. Served it with a brunch menu still warm. Love that it calls for such basic ingredients and is so good! The Brown sugar, butter and flower topping swirled into the batter sinks to the middle of the cake and makes the cake super buttery tasting! I don't like cakes at all but this one will be a new family tradition!

Hi,
Saw this recipe on Pinterest and wanted to give it a try. It just came out of the oven and smells great. I am waiting until tomorrow morning to put the glaze on since I am bringing it to work. I'm not sure why anyone would have trouble swirling the topping - I followed the instructions and mine was a buttery drizzle - very runny! Hopefully it's as good as it smells!

Absolutely delicious! However, the amount of butter needs to be reduced at least by half. I also plan on baking it in a bundt pan and mini bundt pans to see how it turns out.

I made this a few weeks ago and everyone who tried it said it was amazing. One friend even asked to take some extra pieces home for her 'flatmates' and I later found out she had eaten them all herself cause it was so delicious. Definitely making this again!

I have made many cakes in my time but this has to be the best one yet. My son is in college and when he comes home I try different things for him and his friends. They always say that this cake is the best so I have to make them often. I AM MAKING ON RIGHT NOW, IT'S IN THE OVEN!!!! Thanks so much for the recipe. We love you lots!!!

Love this cake, BUT every time I make it all the swirled cinnamon butter stuff goes to the bottom when it is baking because my batter is thin when I try to swirl. My friend makes this same recipe and her batter is thick and she swirls in just fine and it does NOT go to the bottom! Help!!

Hi there, I have made this once before, and made it again today but only had 1 egg in the pantry. Substituted with a banana and it turned out amazing. Kia Ora from New Zealand :)

I have made this before and it is so yummy! In fact, I am making it again tonight to take to my cousin tomorrow (she's very pregnant with triplets and needs food!) :D

I found this on Pinterest also. I have made it 4 times and loved it! The only problem I have had is where the cinnamon mixture is swirled through the cake was very heavy so didn't cook as well. It was very uneven. So this last time I made it i swirled it throughout the whole cake a lot. It cooked much more even! I love it!!

I am adding to my earlier post: to make it swirl easier, i microwave the cinnamon mixture a little to make it more runny.

Hooray for Pinterest! I just took this out of the oven - my house smells AMAZING. My husband has gone back for seconds, and I'm waiting for the delicious aroma to awaken my kiddos! I did make a change, however. I couldn't bring myself to put a whole CUP of butter in the topping. 😩 I cut it in HALF - still amazing! (I also made a cream cheese glaze - thought it would be more "cinnamon role-y".) This is still quite a DECADENT coffee cake, but leaving out a half cup of butter makes it a bit healthier for my family. Thanks for this recipe! 😊

Hands down one of the most amazingly delicious things I've ever made! You can eat it morning noon or night. Thank you for sharing!!

Would this cake still be good if i made it a couple days ahead then reheated it and severed it?

Excellent!!!

Made this and it was to-die-for-delicious; even without the cinnamon! I forgot to put it in! It was caramel buttery good; next time I'll remember the cinnamon!

I made this and it was very rich and very moist. I found an identical reci0pe on Allrecipes but it only called for 1/4 cup of melted butter added to the cake. I think next time I'll try the 1/4 cup melted butter and cut down on the amount of topping. It was almost too much for us!!
