  • 3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup vanilla coffee creamer
  • 3 tbsp butter melted

Cinnamon Filling

  • 1 stick salted butter softened to room temp
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 1/2 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp allspice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp milk


  • 2 cup powdered sugar
  • 13 tsp vanilla coffee creamer



  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl add sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, milk, and vanilla coffee creamer. Mix together using a hand mixer on medium speed.
  • In another medium mixing bowl add flour and baking powder. Whisk together.
  • Slowly add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients while mixing on a low speed. Add the butter and continue to mix until combined. Be careful not to overmix or your batter will become tough and rubbery.
  • Spread the cake batter evenly in the 9x13 baking dish.

Cinnamon 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.
  • 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.
  • Bake the cake for 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean.


  • In a small mixing bowl add powdered sugar, and vanilla coffee creamer. Use a spoon to stir until no lumps remain.
  • Pour the glaze over the warm cake. Let cool completely before serving.
