Serving Up {Cake}: Cinnabon Cake

This recipe for Cinnabon Cake has been making the rounds on a number of blogs as of late.  I first saw this recipe on The Sister's Cafe blog almost four years ago and made it for Father's Day that year.  It was a hit then and we still enjoy it every chance we have to make it now.  If you find yourself craving cinnamon rolls, this is a great option for enjoying the delicious cinnamon goodness in about half the time.

3 cups flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 cup milk
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
4 Tbs. butter, melted

2 sticks butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
2 Tbs. flour
1 Tbs. cinnamon
2/3 cups nuts, optional

2 cups powdered sugar
5 Tbs. milk
1 tsp. vanilla

In a large bowl, mix the flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, milk, eggs and vanilla. Once combined well, slowly stir in melted butter. Pour batter into a greased 9x13 pan.

In another bowl, mix the 2 sticks of softened butter, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and nuts until well combined. Drop evenly over cake batter in cake pan and then use a knife to marble/swirl through the cake.
