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!

  1. 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.

      Hi Darlene! I am SO sorry for the delayed response – I went hiking for a few days and am just now getting to all the emails. Let me know if you had issues with the cake after it was done. Thank YOU!

  2. 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

      Hi Diana!

      I’m sorry about the burnt sugar. 🙁 BUT I am happy to know that you enjoyed the rest of it! 😀 Thank YOU!

  3. While the flavor is great, I cooked this for 45 min and it was WAY to long. I think 30-35 min at the most would be plenty of time.

      Really? I need a new oven! It’s only a year old, but I’ve never been able to bake that cake in under 45 minutes. Thanks so much, Janae, for chiming in!

    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!

      Oh wow! I want your oven!!
      But, as with all cakes, baking time differs greatly, from oven to oven.
      Thanks so much for chiming in!! Enjoy the cake! Let me know how it goes!

  5. Hi Katerina,

    I hop here after looking coffee cake; I thought coffee has something in to it. Nevertheless, I like cinnamon too.
    Pictures are tempting me, nice post.

      Hi Rashida!

      Coffee Cake in the U.S. is a cake that should be enjoyed with a cup of coffee and it never means that there’s coffee inside the cake. 🙂 I hope that makes sense.

    Sun, flowers, and bird year round. That sounds good to me. Wanna move to California together? Plus then we can make this cake and eat the whole thing.

    My husband (and me!) would die over this! He loves absolutely anything that’s cinnamon roll-eque and well, put a cake with it, and we’re both happy campers.
