Cinnamon Roll Cake

Love this new recipe!  I made it for the girls when they were home last week.   My friend Shelly gave me this recipe. She has four children (triplets and an older son) and she said they love this. My girls loved it and then I shared the rest with my preschool teachers.  Try to ignore the two sticks of butter and just make it and enjoy.... or share it with others!!





Cinnamon Roll Cake

Cake :
3 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cups milk
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 c butter -  melted.

Mix all ingredients together except butter. Slowly stir in butter. Pour into 9 x13 greased pan.

Topping:
1 cup butter - melted
1 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp flour
1 Tbsp cinnamon

Mix topping ingredients, and swirl into batter.

Bake 350 for   30-40 minutes.

Top with your basic powdered sugar glaze.

2 cups powdered sugar
5 Tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla.

(Per Shelley - I like to sprinkle with powdered sugar. Also you could easily add nuts, but that would ruin it (as my kids say)  Shelly also mentioned that she often mixes the dry ingredients together at night so she can make the cake quickly the next morning!!
