Who doesn’t love a warm delicious homemade cinnamon roll? I sure do, but I’ll be honest, I don’t make them very often because of how much time they take to make. I am all about quick and easy dessert recipe, and this cinnamon roll cake is just that. It has the flavor of my favorite Cinnabon cinnamon roll, but in a moist cake form. One of my favorite things about this homemade cake recipe, is I usually have all the ingredients on hand when I want to make it. A homemade vanilla cake batter, with a buttery cinnamon sugar topping swirled throughout the cake, and then topped with a cream cheese glaze. This cake tastes just like a warm ooey gooey warm Cinnabon cinnamon roll, it’s that good.

Tips for making the best cinnamon roll cake

  • I like to grease my baking pan with vegetable shortening or line baking pan with parchment paper. This will keep the bottom from becoming too brown.
  • Batter will be thicker than a regular cake mix.
  • Be careful not to over mix your batter or it will become dense. You just want to mix the ingredients until just combined.
  • Be careful not to get the brown sugar filling too close to the edge of the pan. It will crystalize when baking.

Can I add nuts to my cake?

Of course you can! If you would like to add chopped walnuts or pecans, add them to the brown sugar and cinnamon filling and sprinkle some on top of the cake if desired.
