For the Cake Base:
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup melted butter
For the Cinnamon Topping:
- 1 cup softened butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
For the Vanilla Glaze:
- 2 cups confectioners’ sugar
- 5 tablespoons milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9 x 13-inch baking pan.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, salt, sugar, and baking powder for the cake base. Add in the milk, eggs, and vanilla extract, mixing until smooth. Fold in the melted butter. Pour the batter into the greased baking pan.
- In a separate bowl, prepare the cinnamon topping. Combine the softened butter, brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon, mixing until well incorporated. Drop spoonfuls of this mixture over the cake batter, distributing as evenly as possible.
- Use a butter knife to swirl the cinnamon topping into the cake batter, creating a marbled effect.
- Place the baking pan in the preheated oven and bake for 28 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
- While the cake is baking, make the vanilla glaze. In a bowl, whisk together the confectioners’ sugar, milk, and vanilla extract until smooth.
- Once the cake is out of the oven, pour the vanilla glaze over it while the cake is still warm, ensuring even coverage.
- Enjoy your delicious Cinnamon Roll Cake!
Note: Make sure to serve the cake warm to fully enjoy the gooey, cinnamon goodness!
