Cinnamon Roll Cake

Looking for a Christmas dessert or breakfast idea? This Cinnamon Roll Cake is a festive addition to the table!It is the perfect combination of a dense cake with the flavors of a cinnamon roll. It is just a few ingredients and will please any cinnamon lover.
I like to bake this in a pie dish so that when you swirl the cinnamon filling in, it looks like one large cinnamon roll…..YUM!

The cake comes together in one bowl (no mixer needed). Pour into pie dish.Then for the cinnamon filling, just whisk the cinnamon and melted butter together and pour over cake batter. Use a butter knife and swirl into batter.

Once the cake is done baking, make the vanilla glaze and pour over the cake while still warm. ENJOY!!
