Sunday Sweet #2 :: Cinnamon Bun Cake

Mmm….I’m thinking this would make a mighty fine breakfast. A big ole slab of cake and a cup of coffee. Thats the breakfast of champions, right there. Or it is for those of us addicted to sweets! *wink*

Cinnamon Bun Cake


What you’ll need for the Cake:
3 cups of flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup of sugar
4 tsp. of baking powder
1 1/2 cups of milk
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup melted butter

For the Topping:
1 cup of butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp. flour
1 Tbsp. cinnamon

Mix all the ingredients for the ‘cake’ together, except for the butter, until smooth. Slowly stir in the melted butter and pour into a greased 9×13 pan.

For the topping, mix all the ingredients together until well combined. Pour it evenly over the batter and swirl the mixture around with a knife.

Bake the cake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.

For the Glaze:
2 cups of powdered sugar
enough milk to make a runny glaze – about 6 or 7 tablespoons
1 tsp. vanilla

While the cake is still warm, drizzle the glaze over the top and enjoy!.

(I’ve seen others say this is best the day its baked so wait until you have enough people to finish it….Or hide in a closet and eat it all yourself. Either will work fine.)

Has anyone had this before? And does it taste as good as it looks?

I saw this recipe over on the blog Housewifery. I’m not sure if its an ‘original’ or not but just in case…I’m linking. Check out the other blog posts while you’re there. I found a lot of neat stuff to explore when I visited.
