2 tsp vanilla

4 tablespoons butter, melted

1 cup unsalted butter, softened (equivalent to 2 sticks)

How To Make Cinnabon Cinnamon Roll Cake

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Lightly coat a baking pan measuring 9×13 inches, with oil or cooking spray.

In a mixing bowl combine the flour, salt, sugar and baking powder.

Add the milk, eggs and vanilla to the ingredients and mix until you have a batter.

Gently incorporate the butter into the mixture before pouring it into the pan.

In a bowl combine softened butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and nuts (if desired) for the filling.

Evenly distribute spoonfuls of the filling mixture over the cake batter.



Pro Tips:


Room Temperature Ingredients: Ensure that your eggs, milk, and butter are at room temperature. This helps create a smoother batter and promotes even baking.


Swirl Technique: When adding the cinnamon swirl, use a knife to gently swirl it through the cake batter. Avoid overmixing to achieve that beautiful marbled effect.


Quality Cinnamon: Invest in high-quality ground cinnamon for an intense and aromatic flavor profile. This makes a significant difference in the overall taste of the cake.


Patience with Frosting: Allow the cake to cool completely before applying the cream cheese frosting. This prevents the frosting from melting and ensures a perfect, velvety finish.
