Cinnamon Roll Cake - I can never make enough of them ...

Do you bake as often as I do? 

Or do you want a simple, slam dunk cake to go to when you need to make something to satisfy a few guests that is not only hands down the easiest cake I have ever made but a tasty buttery treat that never lasts more than 3 hours...  Well here it is - 

I follow a blog "sewfantastic" and this recipe was right up my alley - I have made this cake 5 times since Thanksgiving weekend and yes... I literally mean 5 times, I have even had to make one to send to someone else's house LOL! This is the easiest, baking I have ever done.
Just dump, mix, fold the batter, then mix, and swirl the cinnamon, shove in the oven for 30 minutes, make a confectioner's sugar glaze and serve... I'm in L-O-V-E!

Give it a try - you will love it. And thanks Juilianne

3 c. flour, 1/4 tsp.salt, 1 c. sugar, 4 tsp. baking powder, 
1 1/2 c. milk,

2 eggs, 
2 tsp. vanilla,

1/2 c. butter, melted

1 c. butter, softened ,1 c. brown sugar, 2 Tbsp. flour, 1 Tbsp. cinnamon

While warm drizzle the glaze over the cake.

Mrs. Chic - Let me warn you now, this is a really addicting cake. I have done the cinnamon swirl style several ways and I always forget to take pictures of the entire process because it is so easy that I memorized the recipe after making it that first time. It is really a second nature cake and I am confident your family will enjoy it. I am going to make another one today LOL!
