If you love cinnamon rolls then you have to try this easy cinnamon roll cake recipe. Not only is it delicious, it will leave your house with the wonderful aroma of cinnamon. Just look at the simple ingredients — you more than likely already have everything you need in your kitchen. It’s also a great way to get your Cinnabun fix without having to go to a mall or airport. It’s too bad that Cinnabun’s delicious Makara cinnamon is not available for purchase by consumers as it would make the cinnamon roll cake even better.

Preheat your oven to 350º F. Use an oven thermometer to verify your oven temperature is correct.

Add the salt, sugar, baking powder, eggs, and vanilla to a mixer bowl. Mix well.

Add the flour and milk. Mix.

Step 3

Slowly add the butter and continue mixing until you have a batter.

Step 4

Step 5

Butter a 9x13" baking pan.

Step 6

Pour the cinnamon roll cake batter into the baking pan. Use a spatula to scrape out all the batter. Smooth out the batter in the pan so it is even and smooth.

Step 11

Step 12

Remove the cinnamon roll cake from the oven and allow it to cool for 10 minutes. Drizzle the cinnamon roll cake glaze all over it. Serve. Since it has dairy in the glaze, I would refrigerate any uneaten cake after a couple hours has passed. It best to eat the cake the same day.
