Cinnamon Roll Cake

For Friday Delight this week, I tried a new recipe: Cinnamon Roll Cake. I love any recipe that starts with a cake mix and just modifies it...chances are good that I'll be able to have it turn out well and this recipe was no exception. This is another recipe I got from Jamie at My Baking Addiction...obviously, that girl is really addicted because she has the best recipes. This recipe showed so much promise that the kids made me make a cake for home and a cake for Superman to take to work...that meant we had cake to share with the neighbors. Everyone loved it and I'm sure Superman's team will love it, too.

Cinnamon Roll Cake
Yellow Cake Mix
4 eggs
¾ cup oil
1 cup sour cream
Mix by hand [I used my hand mixer] and pour in 13 x 9 greased baking pan.

1 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon
Mix and pour over cake batter. Swirl into batter with knife. Bake at 325 degrees for 30-40 minutes. Let cake cool 10 – 15 minutes before icing.

Cream Cheese Glaze
1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
4-5 tablespoons of milk

While the cake is cooling, beat together cream cheese, butter, confectioners' sugar, vanilla extract and salt. Slowly add milk until you reach the desired consistency. Spread frosting on warm cake before serving.

That is all there is to it...quick, easy, and delicious.

Go make a cake!
