Cinnamon Roll Cake



Hey all, I know I have been absent for a few months,but we were doing work on our very first house. But things have now quieted down and I can concentrate way more time to this. It's exciting. I am not a professional cook. I am a working mom and wife and am always looking for easy and foolproof recipes for my family. Recipes that are considered "keeper worthy".


I am going to start simple until I get the hang of this blog thing, so bear with me and follow along for the ride.
I found this recipe on April's Blog, Abby Sweets. It has all the criteria I am looking for. Quick, easy and the use of a box mix. Now dont be a snob, there is nothing wrong with things made from box mixes, and this is proof. I made this at my sister's house yesterday and it smelled great and tasted even better. Try it and you will be amazed at how easy it is. Here is the recipe:

Cinnamon Roll Cake

1 box yellow cake mix
4 eggs
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup sour cream

Mix by hand and pur into 9x13 greased baking pan.
Streusel topping
1 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon

Mix and pour over cake batter. swirl into batter with knife.

Bake at 350 for 40 minutes. Let cake cool 10-15 minutes before icing.

Icing:
2 cups powdered sugar
4 tbsp milk

whisk together and pour over warm cake.


Yummy!!!!!! It's a KEEPER.

  10. Hi Denise,

    OMG are you lucky to have a sister like Donna or what? No seriously I am sure that you will be sick of hearing her name by the time everyone posts here.

    Yes I did come over from Donna's blog and I am glad that I did.

    This cake looks great and I am sure that my kids would love it.

    Keep up the great work you have started.

    This looks very good. Boxed mixes can be a godsend and they certainly can be the basis of some mighty fine dining.
