Sure! Here’s a recipe for Cinnamon Roll Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting:
Ingredients for the Cake:
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup milk
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
Ingredients for the Cinnamon Swirl:
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
Ingredients for the Cream Cheese Frosting:
- 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9×13-inch baking pan.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix well.
- 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.
- Stir in the melted butter until the batter is smooth and well-mixed.
- In a small bowl, prepare the cinnamon swirl by mixing together the softened butter, brown sugar, and ground cinnamon until it forms a paste.
- Pour half of the cake batter into the prepared baking pan. Spread the cinnamon swirl mixture evenly over the batter.
- Drop spoonfuls of the remaining cake batter on top of the cinnamon swirl mixture. Use a knife or a skewer to gently swirl the batter and cinnamon mixture together, creating a marbled effect.
- Bake the cake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
- While the cake is cooling, prepare the cream cheese frosting. In a mixing bowl, beat together the softened cream cheese and butter until smooth and creamy. Gradually add the powdered sugar, mixing well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract until fully incorporated.
- Once the cake has cooled completely, spread the cream cheese frosting over the top of the cake.
- Cut into squares and serve. Enjoy your delicious Cinnamon Roll Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting!
Note: You can also add chopped nuts or raisins to the cinnamon swirl mixture for extra flavor if desired.
