Sweet roll cake: all the flavor of cinnamon rolls without the work!

My sweet friend Jennifer Hines found a recipe she just knew I’d like, and she was right! Oh, my goodness, this cake is easy to make, yes, but even if if were difficult, I’d make it again. It’s that decadently good. And no dealing with yeast, as when you make real cinnamon rolls. Fabulously simple. Addictive.

Sweet roll cake

For the cake batter:

  • 3 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cup milk (I used buttermilk)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted

Topping:

  • 1 cup butter, soft to the point of almost melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  •  2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp flour

In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients together except for the butter.
Once mixed; slowly pour in the butter. Stir into batter.
Pour into a greased 9×13 pan.
For the topping, mix all the ingredients together until well combined.
Drop evenly over the batter and swirl with a knife.
Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes.

Glaze:

  • 2 cup powdered sugar
  • 5 Tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla

While the cake is warm, drizzle the glaze over the cake. Pour yourself a cold glass of milk and enjoy!
