Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake – All the beautiful flavors of a Cinnamon Roll in a delicious and crumbly coffee cake topped with a smooth Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting.
Hi, guys!! Hi Monday!! I think a Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake is the absolute, most proper way to welcome Meatless Monday. Can you believe Fall is like 5 minutes from now? Isn’t that too soon?? In my ideal world, it would be sun and more sun all year round. Leaves on the trees for forever and ever. Birds chirpin’, flowers be bloomin’, tan lines be rulin’, all year long! And now I sound like a country song… Having said that, not sure what I’m doing in Indiana, *still*, buuuuut I’m HERE and I’m trying really hard not to think about what comes after Fall… Take a peek. Brrrrrr!
I also must mention the decision I recently made. Two decisions. Maybe, three. One, for the reeeeest of my life I’m going to eat THIS cake. Two, for forever and beyond, I’m going to frost everything with this Cream Cheese Frosting. Three, from now to eternity, I am going to avoid the scale. Oyyyy… I don’t guess I need to go into detail about what’s before you? Sometimes I just don’t have words. Sometimes there’s just nothing to say. I could try to tell how you much this Cinnamon Roll, or this Coffee Cake, OR BOTH, rocks, but you can look at that silky frosting, and that lovely swirl, and you know? Drool, perhaps?? I just did. I mean, it’s only your ordinary coffee cake filled with a spiced cinnamon-brown-sugar-mixture in the center AND on the bottom. Also, there’s Frosting on top. No biggie.
It started off so innocently. All I wanted was ONE dang Cinnamon Roll from Cinnabon!! But, one of my friends called and said she was coming over – that was a game-changer. Instead of hopping over to the mall, I grabbed the flour sac and got to work. Bada Bing Bada Boom, we have CAKE that tastes just like a cinnamon roll! Besides, it takes too loooooong to make cinnamon rolls, but the cake comes together in a pinch! You’re welcome. xo
