Cinnamon Roll Cake

Pin It Now!

Since this was all over Pinterest.com I decided to bake it and see if it lived up to the hype.

Honestly.. I didn’t think it did. The taste of cinnamon is there… you can tell it is supposed to be cinnamon roll. But the texture of the cake throws me off. And the cake seemed very very dry. Unless I baked it incorrectly or I am just so used to my cakes, then I could be wrong.

Maybe it warrants another go? It sat around my house for about a week until there were about 4 or so slices left. Then I discarded. With 2 grown males and 2 small kids… no baked good last that long in this house.

So I ask you to give it a try. It is a very easy recipe. And if you find a different result..please let me know! I could have over mixed… over baked… anything could have happened. We all know in the world of baking everything comes down to science.
