Maggie Monday: All I can say is YUM!

Here’s another great post from Maggie. She let me know that she bakes all this wonderful stuff and brings a lot into the office. I am now contemplating quitting my job and going back to work for Maggie. Pay me with Cinnamon Roll Cake! 
 

So, like everyone else in my world, I am a “pinner”. I’ve been using Pinterest since late summer, and while not as addicted as some folks I know, I have found,- and actually executed – a number of recipes, crafts, and other ideas.  I found this recipe for Cinnamon Roll Cake there and decided to give it a shot.

My 10-year-old love cinnamon rolls, so this was a no brainer. It is a pretty easy recipe, and while there are more “steps” than a standard cake, it is certainly less time consuming than yeast-risen traditional cinnamon rolls. While the texture is cakey (duh!) rather than bready, this dish has all the richness and cinnamon-y comfort of rolls – without the work.

The folks in my office were drooling over this one!

 Cinnamon Roll Cake

What you need:

Cake:

3 cups all purpose flour

¼ t salt

1 cup sugar

4 t baking powder

1 ½ cups milk

2 eggs

2 t vanilla extract

½ cup butter, melted

 Topping:

1 cup butter, softened to room temperature

1 cup brown sugar

2 T flour

1 T cinnamon

Glaze: (reserve glaze for after cake is baked)

2 cups powdered sugar

5 Tbs milk

1 t vanilla extract

What you do:

Preheat oven to 350. Mix everything together except for the butter. Slowly stir in the melted butter and pour into a greased 9×13 pan.

For the topping, mix all ingredients together until well combined. Drop evenly in bits over the batter

and swirl with a knife .Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes, test for doneness with a toothpick.

Remove from oven, and let cool for 5 – 10 minutes.

Drizzle the glaze over the cake while it is still warm. Serve cake while still warm, or warm up in microwave before serving.

Next time I make this I may substitute a butter cream or cream cheese frosting for the glaze. This is very rich, and the icing rather than the glaze will make it even more rich and decadent.  Delish!

    Hmmmm….. I must find out who this Maggie is for it can’t be me. I tend to leave out the flour when I bake so I have different results than this Wonder Baking Maggie. I will find her and just ask her to make some for me so I don’t ruin what looks soooo yummy!

    Love the blog!

      Hi Maggie! I would be happy to bake for you! I love to bake but my husband and I can’t (ummm….shouldn’t!) eat what I make, so I tend to bake, taste, then share! If you’re ever in Virginia let me know and I’ll comply with your request! My colleagues and friends at the stable tend to be pretty happy when I walk in with covered plates or tupperware!
