Cinnamon Roll Cake

Words can not even describe how decadent this cake!  It melts in your mouth while the cinnamon sugar filling makes your taste buds dance with joy.  I really could go on and on about the beauty of this cake but, you really need to march into your kitchen and get baking!  This is for sure a new staple in my life and it is a perfect cake to WOW with.  I found this recipe on Bake or Break and only made a few changes because I didn't have certain things on hand.

For the Cake:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 3oz box french vanilla instant pudding mix
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
For the Filling:
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
For the Glaze:
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3-4 tablespoons heavy cream, half and half, or 2% milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

In a large mixing bowl add flour, sugar, cinnamon baking powder, salt and pudding mix, and give a quick toss. 

Add in butter, oil, eggs, vanilla and sour cream until creamy.  Grease 2 bread pans and add 1/4 of mixture to each. 

In a small bowl whisk together filling ingredients and top the batter in each pan with an equal amount of mixture.

 Pour remaining batter over each filling mixture and bake for 50 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean. 

Cool in pan on a wire rack.

Whisk all glaze ingredients until smooth and pour even amounts over each cooked cake.
