Cinna-bun Cake

Sure! Here’s a recipe for a delicious Cinna-bun Cake:


For the cake:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

For the cinnamon swirl:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon

For the cream cheese icing:

  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tablespoons milk (optional, for desired consistency)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9×13-inch baking pan.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, and vanilla extract. Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring until just combined.
  4. Stir in the melted butter until the batter is smooth and well mixed.
  5. In another small bowl, prepare the cinnamon swirl mixture by combining the softened butter, brown sugar, and ground cinnamon until it forms a smooth paste.
  6. Pour half of the cake batter into the prepared baking pan. Spread the cinnamon swirl mixture evenly over the batter in the pan.
  7. Pour the remaining cake batter over the cinnamon swirl layer, spreading it out as evenly as possible.

  1. Take a butter knife and gently swirl it through the batter in a zigzag pattern to create a marbled effect.
  2. Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  3. While the cake is baking, prepare the cream cheese icing. In a mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese and butter until creamy. Gradually add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract, continuing to beat until smooth. If the icing is too thick, you can add a tablespoon or two of milk to achieve your desired consistency.
  4. Once the cake is done baking, remove it from the oven and let it cool in the pan for about 10 minutes.
  5. Drizzle the cream cheese icing over the warm cake, spreading it out evenly with a spatula.
  6. Allow the cake to cool completely before serving. Slice and enjoy!

This recipe yields a delicious and moist Cinna-bun Cake with a swirl of cinnamon and a creamy cream cheese icing.
