Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake

Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake

Traditional coffee cake meets cinnamon roll.  This quick and easy cake is the perfect breakfast treat or late night snack. 

Cake Ingredients:

½ cup butter, melted

2 eggs

1 cup sugar (I cut the sugar to ¾ cup since the topping and glaze are so sweet - but that's just me!) 

3 cups flour

2 tsp vanilla

4 tsp baking powder 

¼ tsp salt

1½ cups milk


1 cup butter, melted

1 cup brown sugar

2 T flour

1 T cinnamon

¼ chopped walnuts, optional


1 cup powdered sugar

2½ T milk

½ tsp vanilla


Preheat oven to 350 F.  In a large bowl, mix cake ingredients together until well combined.  Pour into a greased 9x13 pan or cast iron Bundt pan.  (I used two pans: a Lodge 8" cast iron loaf pan and an 8" cast iron skillet.)

For the topping, mix ingredients together in a small bowl until well combined.  Spread evenly on the batter and swirl with a knife. Be sure to swirl down into the batter for the cinnamon roll effect.  Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes.

For the glaze, mix ingredients together in a small bowl until smooth.  Drizzle the glaze over the warm cake. 

Serve cake warm or at room temperature.  Enjoy!
