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 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

ENJOY!

    Yum! I tried this last night and with the cake still hot, I poured the frosting over and promptly cut myself a piece. The sugar caramelized and tasted wonderful and crunchy. I made 1/2 of the recipe and it fit into a loaf pan, and I replaced the sour cream with Dannon yogurt (the kids one, where they come in the little bottles and are strawberry-banana flavored) since I didn’t have anything else.

    Made the cake and the filling had too much butter. Filling came out creamy versus crumbly. Is there supposed to be flour added to the filling recipe instructions? It’s in the oven so I will wait to see if the consistency of the filling is correct for this recipe. Hope so; my daughter and young grandson love cinnamon cake and ask for it year-long. Thanks.

    i made it today
    it burnt a bet b/c of the Cinnamon Filling on thee bottom, so for next time i won’t put it on the bottom, i only made 1/2 of the Frosting. and it was too much for the cake so if anybody else is going to make it just split the measurement in 1/2.
    the cake was really good. thanks Katerina for sharing, my daughters name is Katerina too. beautiful name

    The cake looks absolutely wonderful, and my house smells amazing. But it came out 20 minutes early, so it only took 35 minutes. So be watchful of your oven!

    Described like a true American. Love the wording and considering I’m British I enjoyed reading this out to everyone at home (enthusiastically) and got some very strange looks.

    Now I’m going to attempt to make this cake, we don’t have Cinnabon in England but I had one when I was in America and loved them so here goes, wish me luck! 🙂
