"Sin"amon Cake

This is NOT my picture!  Our cake didn't last long enough to grab the camera!
That's what we call this new cake!

"Sin"amon Cake!

The cherubs say it's "sin in a bowl!"

My girl cherub says "Jesus can come back now!"

My boy cherubs says "Pure Sin!"

I don't know HOW they come up with these things?

The Mr. says, "This cake is so light, you could eat the whole thing!" 
(Please notice, he didn't say anything spiritual!)

The other day, in the office, the Mr. saw this recipe and picture and said, "Oh!  Send that to Karen; she'd want that recipe!"

Translated:  "I think Karen needs to whip that dessert up  .  . . and in a hurry!"

So the Mr. talked about how good this recipe sounded and how good the picture looked . . .

 . . .for days!

He got on "pinterest" to show me . . .

 . . .and he talked about it . . .

 . . . and he secretely drooled!

Then!
Surprise!

I made it!

Oh my!  It's ridiculous!

Don't be scared by the length recipe -- it's easy as pie cake!

"Sin"amon Roll Cake (It's really Cinnamon Roll Cake . . . we've just re-named it!)

Cake:

3 c. flour
1/4 tsp.salt

1 c. sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 c. milk
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. butter, melted

Topping:

1 c. butter, softened
1 c. brown sugar
2 Tbsp. flour
1 Tbsp. cinnamon

Mix everything for the cake together except for the butter.  Slowly stir in the melted butter and
pour into a greased 9x13 pan. 

For the topping, mix all the ingredients together until well combined.  Drop evenly over the batter
and swirl with a knife.  (I used the smallest Pampered Chef cookie scoop to evenly distribute the topping.  I didn't swirl it in -- because i forgot.  If it changed the taste or look -- who knew!  It didn't stop us from devoring the entire cake!)

Bake at 350 for 28--‐32 minutes.  (This is tricky -- you don't want to over-bake, but you don't want the ooey-gooey, half-done cake either!)

Glaze:

2 c. powdered sugar
5 Tbsp. milk
1 tsp. vanilla

While the cake is warm from the over, drizzle the glaze over the cake.

Dig in!  While the cake is still warm, enjoy a piece!  You won't be sorry!  Matter of fact, you're going to "Wuv" it!

We found we prefered the cake served warm!  About 15 seconds in the microwave was perfect!
