Well, I have the perfect solution! Make a cinnamon roll cake.
You get all the same sweetness and gooey-ness in so much less time!
I took the cake to a potluck dinner we were invited to and brought home an empty pan. In fact we were scrapping the sides of the pan as I left, trying to get every last bit of yumminess out of the pan!!
I found the recipe over at Pinterest. One of my newest addictions. If you haven’t checked it out you should! If you need an invite to join let me know. It’s a great way to keep track of all those great recipes and ideas you find on your favorite blogs. (Hint: Feel free to pin any of mine!!)
The recipe came from Cookin’ Up North who got it from someone else, who got it from…. You know how it works here in the blog world.
Be sure and time it so you can eat this cake warm – everyone knows a cinnamon roll tastes better warm!
