HOW TO MAKE THIS CINNAMON ROLL CAKE RECIPE

STEP ONE: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.

STEP TWO: In a large mixing bowl, add sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, milk, and vanilla coffee creamer. Mix together using a hand mixer on medium speed.

STEP THREE: In another medium mixing bowl add flour and baking powder. Whisk together.

STEP FOUR: Slowly add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients while mixing on a low speed. Add the butter and continue to mix until well combined. Be careful not to overmix or your batter will become tough and rubbery.

STEP FIVE: Spread the cake batter evenly in the 9×13 baking dish.

STEP SIX: Now, to make the filling! In a small mixing bowl, add softened butter, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, allspice, vanilla extract, and milk. Use a spoon to stir until no lumps remain.

STEP SEVEN: Drop the cinnamon filling by spoonfuls onto the cake batter. Use a butter knife and drag it through the cake batter making a swirl, marble-like pattern all around the cake. Make sure to get all the way to the sides.

STEP EIGHT: Bake the cake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean.

STEP NINE: Now to make the glaze. In a small mixing bowl, add powdered sugar, and vanilla coffee creamer. Use a spoon to stir until no lumps remain.

STEP TEN: Pour the glaze over the warm cake. Let it cool completely before serving.

STORAGE

IN THE FRIDGE: You can store leftover cinnamon roll cake on the countertop or in the fridge for 3 to 4 days. When reheating, I find it best to place it in the oven just long enough to warm it back up and melt the icing.

IN THE FREEZER: Freezing your cinnamon roll cake is really easy. Just cover it tightly in tin foil and place it in the freezer for up to 3 months.
