I took this 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. Just trying to get every last bit of yumminess out of the pan!! You could say it was a big hit!
This cake is easy to put together. First, mix together the flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, milk, eggs, and vanilla. Then slowly stir in the melted butter and pour into a greased 9×13 pan. Next, make the topping by mixing together the butter, brown sugar, flour and cinnamon. Drop the mixture evenly over the batter and swirl with a knife. Put the pan in the oven and bake at 350 for 28-32 minutes.
Once the cake is out of the oven, mix together the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla for the glaze and drizzle it over the warm cake.
This cake is absolutely delicious served warm. So make sure to time it so you can eat this cinnamon roll cake warm. Everyone knows a cinnamon roll tastes best fresh from the oven!
