Cinnamon Roll Cake

The cake is incredibly simple and tastes just like a cinnamon roll fresh out of the oven. I actually made the recipe and a half so I could make a 9x9 for my family and a 9x12 for my co-workers.

 It stayed fresh a lot longer than I expected and is SO moist! It might have something to do with the yummy glaze poured on top once the cake comes out of the oven. This makes a great weekend breakfast cake, similar to the Apple Cream Cheese Coffee Cake I shared a few weeks ago.

I made this for my little brother over Christmas break! He absolutely loves cinnamon rolls, and I found a recipe for the cake on Pinterest! Not sure if they're exactly the same recipe, but it was sooo delicious!
