Cinnamon Roll Cake

Tuesday, December 20, 2011

Hmmmm....I'm sensing that Day 20's holiday treat recipe could become our Christmas morning breakfast. 

I was surprised to discover that this delightful breakfast cake actually does taste like cinnamon rolls.  My family devoured it in no-time flat and I am thinking that this recipe will definitely go onto our fancy breakfast menu rotation.  Fancy, of course, being how it tastes, not how long it takes to prepare, since this one was easy peasy to make!

This sounds like a wonderful recipe. I'm keeping it and will definitely have to try it since we all love cinnamon buns in this house!

Every Christmas since I was born, we have made my grandmother's buttermilk coffee cake. Then last week, my sister Jane made this same recipe for my mom, and they both agreed that it's time to replace the coffee cake! I can't wait for Christmas morning!

SO many of these I want to try this is the best idea. I hate how long cinnamon rolls take. Love this

This look so good. I can't wait to serve this to my family. Is there a way to make this ahead of time. I don't want to spend Christmas morning baking.

Sarah, I would make the batter, topping, and glaze and refrigerate them in separate bowls. Then all you would need to do on Christmas morning is to quickly combine and bake them.

Merry Christmas!
