Cinnamon Roll Cake

Today was my boss and my coworkers birthday. So I decided to make a cinnamon roll cake recipe that I have seen now on several blogs and Pinterest. I thought it would be a good breakfast cake because you have cinnamon roll's for breakfast. It tasted just like a cinnamon roll. It was awesome! I only had a couple pieces left which I snatched up for Phil to have a taste.

I liked this recipe because I got all the goodness of a cinnamon roll without all the waiting around for the dough to rise, then the rolls to rise.

I love that with this blog I can make all the desserts I have been wanting to make and not have to leave it on my counter at home to eat because I can just bring it in to work to get eaten by everyone else!

  1. This is a HUGE hit in our house! I'm going to try and adapt this to make them into muffins. If it turns out well I'll be blogging about it :)
