Step-by-Step Guide to Making Cinnabon Cinnamon Roll Cake

1. Preparing the Cake Batter

Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C) and lightly greasing a 9×13-inch baking pan.

In a mixing bowl, combine flour, salt, sugar, and baking powder. Add milk, eggs, and vanilla extract, and mix until a smooth batter forms. Gently fold in the melted butter.

2. Creating the Cinnamon Filling

In a separate bowl, blend softened butter, brown sugar, ground cinnamon, and nuts (if desired) to make the filling.

3. Assembling the Cake

Pour the prepared cake batter into the greased pan. Spoon dollops of the cinnamon filling mixture evenly over the batter. Use a knife to swirl the filling into the batter, creating beautiful marbling patterns.

4. Baking and Glazing

Bake the cake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out mostly clean.

While the cake bakes, whisk together powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract to make the glaze.

5. Final Touches

Once the cake is baked, remove it from the oven and immediately drizzle the glaze over the warm cake. Allow the cake to cool slightly before serving.
