Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake…………..

I am not a huge fan of cinnamon. However, I love the aroma of cinnamon. Imagine if you will, the smells of cinnamon, butter and vanilla, all together. It is quite a delicious aroma. That aroma will be drifting through your home, when you bake this. Actually, I would like a bubble bath in this scent. Ahhhhhhhhh, that would be heavenly. I must warn you….as delicious as this cake is, it is definitely not something you want to make frequently. It is loaded with butter, and sugar, and butter and more butter. So please proceed with caution!! LOL If you like cinnamon rolls, you will love this cake.

After you have enjoyed this very sweet treat, I highly recommend a treadmill or a 10 mile run. 🙂

Cinnamon Roll Cake

3 cups of flour
3/4 cup of sugar
1/4 tsp salt
4 teaspoons of baking powder
1 1/2 cups of milk
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 stick of butter, melted


2 sticks of softened butter
1 cup of brown sugar
2 tablespoons of flour
1 tablespoon of cinnamon


2 cups of powdered sugar
5 tablespoons of milk

Preheat oven to 350. Mix flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, milk, eggs and vanilla together. Add the 1 stick of melted butter. Pour batter into a buttered 9×13 baking dish.

For the topping, mix the 2 sticks of butter, brown sugar, 2 tablespoons of flour and cinnamon. Drop by spoonfuls over the cake batter. Use a knife to swirl through batter. Bake at 350 for about 25-30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Mix the glaze ingredients together and drizzle over the warm cake. YOU MAY WANT TO USE THE GLAZE SPARINGLY, since this is a very sweet cake.

  1. I love this recipe! I will make this again and again. By the way, Philosophy makes a shower gel with the Cinnamon Roll scent! Absolutely heavenly as bubble bath.

  2. Sounds like a great recipe….will definitely try it. In Canada , most butter is not sold in sticks. Can you convert this to cup measurement? Thanks.

    • hi Nancy, sorry for the delay in responding. 1 stick of butter is equal to 1/2 cup. so for the cake, measure out 1/2 cup butter and then melt it.
      for the topping, use 1 cup of butter (not melted). hope this helps. let me know how you like it!

    • hi Patty, i have never tried to freeze this. hmmm. i may have to make one and try it. let me know if you do!

  3. Hi. Either my bread pan isn’t a true bread pan size, or the recipe should be put into two pans. Mine overflowed! Luckily I put a cookie sheet under the pan. And the cook time was WAY under! I started with 30 min and have done at least 40 more minutes, and it still isn’t done.
    It does smell AMAZING though! 😊

    • Hi Cindy, while i havent tried it in a loaf pan, i dont see why it wouldnt work, Of course the loaf pan is deeper so the cooking time would be longer…..maybe about 10 minutes more? i would check it with a long skewer after about 30 minutes. I cant see that it would get dry since its such a super moist cake. Let me know if you try it!! I may do so myself. If you would like me to do that i can and i will let you know before you try it. Just let me know. 🙂

  4. Question! Can this be made the day before serving? Or is it recommended to be served immediately? I cannot wait to try this!

    • hi Lindsay! oh yes, it can be made before. You may wanna give it a quick zap in the microwave before serving. But really its good without microwaving it. Its so moist and buttery. Enjoy!!

  5. I can’t find the recipe I used to have but this seems like the closest to it. It is by far one of the best things I have ever made (and eaten ^_^ ) and my mother about dies over it haha 😀 We too, LOVE cinnamon …as well as butter and brown sugar especially when combined 😉 lol

    • Hi Samantha….I just love this cake and have to force myself to only make it once in a great while. ahhahaaha. Let me know what you think. Take care…. Betty
