This blog is a culmination of two forever-bakers who have spent countless hours reading about, thinking about, and dreaming about baking delicious treats in our spare time. After taking a few cake decorating classes, our interest has soared to no end. While living and working in the same city has been a sweet treat in itself, a move across the state has spawned the desire to keep in touch by taking our love of baking and everything kitchen to the next level. So wipe your feet on the mat and stay awhile!

Cinnamon Roll Cake

I've been spending way too much time on pinterest, especially when it comes to finding recipes. The other day I realized that I had pinned upwards of 30 recipes but had not considered actually making one of them.  So last week I did a week full of pinterest recipes, one of which was this cinnamon roll cake!  It's warm and gooey, and I'm telling myself it's a breakfast food....  I think it's the cinnamon that helps it qualify.  This would be extremely easy to whip up for a brunch or the morning of Christmas, and it's just the right thing to get your day started. 

Cinnamon Roll Cake
from Cookin' Up North via Pinterest

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. buter, melted

1 c. butter, softened
1 c. brown sugar
2 Tbl. flour
1 Tbl. cinnamon

2 c. powdered sugar
5 Tbl. milk
1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 9x13 pan and set aside.

In a large bowl mix the flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, milk, eggs, and vanilla until throughly combined.  Slowly add in the butter stirring as you add it, then pour into the greased 9x13 pan. 

In another bowl combine the ingredients for the topping: butter, brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon, and mix well until everything is combined.  Drop spoonfuls of the topping evenly over the batter and then use a knife to swirl around.  (Side note: if you spread it well enough you may not have to do a lot of swirling, it's a good amount of topping).  Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes, make sure the middle is cooked through and not jiggly.

Mix together the glaze and pour over the cinamon roll cake while still warm.  Enjoy!
