All the best parts of a giant cinnamon roll and a cake come together to make Cinnamon Cinnabon Cake. Oozing with vanilla icing, this cinnamon roll cake is the ultimate in breakfast decadence. 

Ingredients

For the Cakes:

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour plus 2 Tbsp, divided
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp cinnamon

For the Icing:

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. For the cake, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease two 9-inch cake pans, lining the bottom with parchment paper.
  2. In mixer, blend 3 cups of the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, milk, eggs, vanilla and 1/4 cup melted butter. Divide batter evenly between cake pans.
  3. In another mixing bowl, beat 3/4 cup butter with brown sugar, 2 Tbsp flour, and cinnamon. Continue to beat until fully blended and fluffy (about 3 minutes). Using two tablespoons, drop butter mixture onto cake batter. Use a knife to swirl.
  4. Bake cakes for about 25-30 minutes. Remove from oven and cool in pans 10 minutes. Flip cakes out onto serving plates.
  5. For icing, whisk the powdered sugar with 1/4 cup milk and 1 tsp vanilla extract. Drizzle over warmed cakes. Enjoy!
