I made this cinnamon roll cake on Easter for my grandchildren and they loved it, so did I.
Blue Ribbon Recipe
Is it a cinnamon roll? Is it a cake? This dessert is a cross between both and a win-win in our world. The cake is super tender, fluffy, and delicate. Adding buttermilk and butter makes a delectable crumb. The cinnamon mixture sinks during the baking process and the cake bakes around it. Thanks to evaporated milk, the glaze is super-rich. Perfect for brunch, breakfast, or dessert.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray with flour. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, salt, and baking powder.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar.
Alternate adding the flour mixture and buttermilk to the butter mixture. Mix well; this batter will be thick.
Mix in vanilla.
Spread this mixture into the prepared baking dish.
Mix together the topping, 1 1/2 sticks of butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, and flour.
Drop spoonfuls of the topping on the cake.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 30-35 minutes. Check on it near the end to make sure the oven temps are the same. A toothpick inserted should come out of the cake part mostly clean.
When it comes out of the oven, mix the topping ingredients.
Drizzle topping over warm cake. Let sit for a few minutes to soak it in.
