Great for a Bunch Cinnamon Bun Cake

Great for a Bunch Cinnamon Bun Cake

One of my favourite guilty pleasures (beside reality tv and trashy magazines) is sitting on the couch and getting lost in Pinterest. I was having a lazy morning and came across this recipe for a Cinnamon Bun Cake.  It looked so yummy that I decided to make it.

Thank goodness for still having baking leftovers from Christmas in the pantry.

The recipe I listed above is very basic and I added some extra instructions below for ease of use. 

Ingredients 

Base:
3 cups White Flour
1/4 teaspoon Salt (I used sea salt but table salt is fine)
1 cup White Sugar
4 teaspoons Baking Powder
1 1/2 cups Milk
2 Eggs
2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
1/2 cup Butter (Melted)

Topping:
1 cup Butter (Softened)
1 cup Brown Sugar (Lightly Packed)
2 tablespoons White Flour
1 tablespoon Ground Cinnamon

Glaze:
2 cups Icing Sugar (also called Powdered Sugar)
5 tablespoons Milk
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Preheat oven to 350F.

Butter a 9 x 13 baking pan and set aside.

To create the base of your cake mix all of the base ingredients together except butter. Once the base is thoroughly mixed add the melted butter. Pour into your prepared pan, making sure the base is even. 

In a separate bowl (or the same you used for the based but thoroughly cleaned) mix all of the topping ingredients together.  Spread the butter mixture evenly over the base mixture in your pan. Using a butter knife swirl the topping into the base.  The more you swirl the topping into the base the better your end product will look. 

Bake for 28-30 minutes.

Prepare the glaze by mixing the glaze ingredients together. 

Remove from oven and let the cake cool for 5 minutes on a cooling rack.

While the cake is still warm use a butter knife to poke holes in the base. Spread glaze evenly over the base while the cake is still warm.
