Cinnamon Roll Cake Recipe

This next recipe is a new favorite.

I would be lying if I said I was an expert at Cinnamon Roll Making… that’s my mom’s job, and she’s just so stinking good at it, that most of us in the family leave that recipe to her. Although, I haven’t been brave enough to try Cinnamon Rolls all on my own, I was able to make a Cinnamon Roll Cake Recipe that was a HUGE hit! It’s perfect for a breakfast dish or for dessert. It was suuuuper easy to make and can be done by anyone.

I recommend serving this yummy treat when it’s warm because it just melts in your mouth and tastes just like regular Cinnamon Rolls!
