Cinnamon Roll Cake

5 / 5 (1 review) No Comments


I love cinnamon rolls, but hate all the labor that goes into them.  This I had to try, and see how it would stand up to a true, oooey, gooey, cinnamon roll.  Much, much easier to make, and with all the oooey goodness you can imagine!  This cake is moist, and doesn’t have the dry spots like some cinnamon rolls get.  This was a keeper…one the whole family quickly devoured!  Works great as a dessert, but even better as a breakfast or brunch treat!

Serves 16-20 for less than a few bucks
