I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Cinnamon Roll Cake from Scratch

If you love cinnamon rolls but don't have the patience (like me) for all that rising and punching down it takes to make "real" cinnamon rolls, then this is the recipe for you! This cake is super buttery, filled with cinnamon and easy to make!


3 cups flour, sifted
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
4 tsps baking powder
1  1/2 cups milk
2 eggs
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup butter, melted

cinnamon filling:
1 cup butter, at room temperature
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 tbsps flour
1 tbsp cinnamon

2 cups icing sugar, sifted
5 tbsps milk
1 tsp vanilla extract

Start by preparing your pan...grease and flour a 13 X 9" and set aside.

In a large bowl whisk together the sifted flour, salt, sugar and baking powder. Add the milk, eggs and vanilla. While running the mixer slowly pour in the melted butter.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan.

Next, in a medium bowl, beat the room temperature butter until fluffly then add the brown sugar, flour and cinnamon. It will be lumpy at first...

but will come together to form a smooth filling.

The original recipe said to spread the filling over the batter, but that didn't work for me. So I simply dropped blobs of filling randomly over the batter trying to stay about 1" away from the sides.

Bake in a 350 F oven for 35-38 minutes then cool for 15 minutes.

While the cake cools whisk together the glaze ingredients.
Drizzle over still-warm cake.

Doesn't all the glaze look amazing?

This cake will serve 15 good size pieces of cake that doubles as a cinnamon roll. Does that mean I can eat cake for breakfast?!?
