Hello everyone! ❤ Welcome back to your weekly dose of my tasty treats. Today, I have something absolutely delicious to share with you. It’s a traditional sweet roll with a fun twist:
I made a cinnamon roll cake!!!
Up until now, Pinterest has supplied all of my recipes, but I found today’s treat from one of the sweetest bloggers I know. She also happens to have the most beautiful blog that I’ve ever seen! Her name is Hannah, and her website is called Woven Beautiful. ❤
She and my mom have been blogging friends for years, so even though Hannah and I have only been acquainted for a few months now, I feel like I already know her so well. 🙂
Hannah writes about the beauty in her life, from what the Lord is teaching her, to her sweet family, to the hobbies she’s interested in – and like I mentioned a moment ago, the mood of her blog is peaceful and absolutely beautiful – it’s no wonder to me that she has that word in the name of her site!

When I saw that she’d shared a recipe for a cinnamon roll cake that she makes, I knew that I had to make one myself. The only thing I did differently was add more vanilla extract into the cake, as I didn’t have any almond extract on hand, and I used margarine in the cake part instead of butter.
These are the ingredients I used to make the cake:
And this is what I needed to make the cinnamon-sugar topping:
Unfortunately, I didn’t take pictures of the cinnamon topping or the three-ingredient glaze, but it’s because there wasn’t much to them. Haha!
First, I mixed the wet ingredients together (my favorite bowl wasn’t clean, so I had to use a different one, lol!):
Then I combined the dry ingredients in a small, separate bowl:
Then I combined the two together, put the batter in a greased glass baking dish, made the topping and spread it on top, then baked it. Once it was done, I made the glaze and evenly drizzled it over the whole thing, then I served it to my family after dinner!
It really reminds me of a coffee cake my mom used to make all the time. That dessert had a cake base, cinnamon topping, and sugary drizzle, as well. It was one of my favorite desserts for a while! Because of that similarity, I enjoyed this cinnamon roll cake even more.
