Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake
My name is Lisa and I’m the publisher of Flour Me With Love. I’m a stay-at-home mom to four kids and I have a passion for baking. Life can be very hectic and I know a lot of people don’t have the time to bake. Plus some feel that it may be too complicated. I started Flour Me With Love to show everyone just how simple it is. I show step-by-step photo tutorials and have easy to follow instructions. I also use readily available ingredients so you’ll be able to make any of the recipes on my blog. I hope you’ll stop over for a visit or follow along via Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest. I want to thank Marti so much for asking me to do a guest post, it was a lot of fun!
Lately I’ve seen quite a few recipes for cinnamon roll cake and honey bun cake. I made one that was made from scratch and one that was made with a cake mix. They were good, however I like cinnamon rolls to be on the dense side (you know, that gooey center) and that’s the kind of cake I wanted to replicate. So this cake is a little dense (that’s why I called it a coffee cake), it has great cinnamon roll flavor and the perfect icing to top it off!
1/4 C butter
3/4 C sugar
3/4 C sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 C flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 C brown sugar
1/2 C butter, very soft
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 Tbsp. butter
1 C powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1-2 Tbsp. milk
Cream together the butter and sugar until light & fluffy.
Add the sour cream, eggs and vanilla; stir until combined.
Stir in the flour, baking soda and salt.
Pour into prepared pan and set aside.
In another bowl, mix together the brown sugar, butter and cinnamon.
Spoon this onto the batter and swirl it all through it (I used a butter knife).
Bake for 40-45 minutes; until golden brown.
Melt the butter in the microwave then add the vanilla.
Slowly stir in powdered sugar (it will be crumbly).
Add the milk a little at a time until you get a creamy consistency.
Drizzle all over the cake while it’s still warm.
Slice, serve and enjoy!
