Cinnamon Roll Cake

Oh my, is this Cinnamon Roll Cake the best thing ever. I hope you find it as good as my family does. It is so easy to make. This cake is good hot or the next day. It usually doesn’t last too long after that, at my house.

My parents are coming over for dinner and have chosen the menu. I’m unnaturally excited about them coming for no reason. Typically, when they come to my house, it is either a celebration or a crisis. This time is neither.

Technically, Thursdays are reserved for pizza night, but I am gladly rescheduling that for Friday night. I’m thankful that my parents can still get up and go whenever they want. It is a blessing.

I love cinnamon rolls probably more than my waistline does. We do not make this often, but tonight was a special occasion.


3 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 cups milk

2 eggs

4 tsps. vanilla

4 tsps. baking powder

1 stick butter, melted


Place ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Pour into a 13×9 greased dish.

1 cup brown sugar

1 T. Cinnamon

3/4 cup melted butter


Mix in a small bowl and pour over top of the cake.

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.


3 c. powdered sugar (for those who might not know, the symbol XXX is for powdered sugar as well).

1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

5-8 tsps milk (you want it thin enough to pour quickly)


Allow sitting for 10 minutes. Pour over hot cake. If you get wild, poke some holes in the cake and let that yumminess seep into it.

I had company over, and I needed something for dessert.  Enter the Cinnamon Roll Cake.  Wow!  This was so simple and so good.  Very easy, and since I have most of these things on hand, I can make it more often!  I may even be wild and cook this batter in a waffle maker!

Cinnamon Roll Cake

3 c. self-rising flour

1.5 c. milk

2 eggs

4 tsp. vanilla

1 stick butter, melted

Combine and mix all these ingredients.  Place in a greased 13×9 dish.  This is super thick, like bread.  Please do your best to spread it out, but mine was not evenly spread.


1 c. brown sugar

1 T. cinnamon

Spread over “cake” batter.  Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.  Allow cooling.


3 c. powdered sugar

1-2 T. water

1 tsp. vanilla

In a saucepan, bring this mixture to a boil.  Stir for a smooth, syrupy consistency.  Add the water 1 T at a time.  You may need to add more than 2 T, so eyeball it.  Once it is smooth, pour over the cake, and it will begin to harden like a glaze.

I love cinnamon rolls, and this Cinnamon Roll Cake fit the bill, and my tastebuds loved it.
