Cinnabon Cinnamon Roll Cake Recipe

Without the normal morning rush that weekdays bring , weekends are a good time for trying new breakfast recipes. My little guy loves coffee cake so this seemed like a fun twist on a classic. It has been officially tried and loved in our house on this chilly, rainy March morning.

Cinnabon Cinnamon Roll Cake Ingredients:

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 4 T butter, melted
  • 2 sticks (1 cup) butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 T flour
  • 1 T cinnamon
  • 2/3 cups nuts (optional)


  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  •  5 T milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Directions: With an electric mixer or stand-up mixer, mix flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, milk, eggs, and vanilla. Once combined well, slowly stir in 4 T melted butter. Pour batter into a greased 9×13″ baking pan. In a large bowl, mix the 2 sticks of softened butter, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and nuts until well combined. Drop evenly over cake batter by the tablespoon and use a knife to marble/swirl through the cake. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick comes out nearly clean from center. Place powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla in a large bowl. Whisk until smooth. Drizzle over warm cake. Serve warm  or at room temperature.
