Cinnamon Roll Cake

Here's an extremely yummy, non-traditional cake that everyone should try at least once in their life. It only takes 1 and 1/2 c. of butter, but who's counting? It gets the honor of being the first recipe photographed in my new and improved kitchen.

Cinnamon Roll Cake- 9x13 pan
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 Tbs. flour
1 Tbs. cinnamon
Mix all cake ingredients together except butter. Slowly stir in the melted butter and our into a greased 9x13 pan. For the topping, mix all ingredients until well combined. Drop evenly over the batter and swirl with a knife. Bake at 350 for 28-32 minutes.
2 c. powdered sugar
5 Tbs. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
Drizzle glaze over warm cake.

Photo Tutorial! A thank you to Shannon, who actually made the cake while I took pictures. It's so much easier, not juggling the camera while stirring with one hand!

Spooning on the glaze:
We used this as Ben's birthday cake. We bought trick candles that were supposed to spark and never go out. They didn't work. Worst 98 cents I've ever spent.
I think Ben liked it anyway.
