Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake

Oh cinnamon and sugar,
how I love thee.

Hello, lovely friends!
Today I have an oh-so-wonderful treat for you.
Are you needing a little something for your sweet tooth?
Or are you having company over
and you need a quick and tasty dessert?
Maybe you just want a cinnamon roll with your cup of coffee,
but don't want to make a whole batch. . .
well, this delicious cinnamon roll coffee cake 
is just what you're looking for.

This cake is easy peasy to whip up,
and it's filled with ooey gooey goodness
that will make your taste buds thank you after you've eaten a piece.


½ cup butter, melted
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
3 cups flour
2 tsp vanilla
4 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
1½ cups milk

1 cup butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp flour
1 Tbsp cinnamon

2 cups powdered sugar
5 Tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

For the cake,
mix all the cake ingredients together in a large bowl
until well combined.
Pour into a greased 9 x 13 pan.

For the topping, 
mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl 
until well combined.

Spread evenly on the batter and swirl with a knife. 
Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes
{the recipe says to bake it this long, 
but I had to bake mine for about 45-50 minutes}.

For the glaze, 
mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl 
until it is a consistency like pancake syrup.
While the cake is warm 
drizzle the glaze onto the top and it will set into a harder glaze.
Serve warm or at room temperature.

Serve this cake in the morning for brunch
or save it for dessert after supper.
And brew yourself a nice cup of tea or coffee.
Mmmm. . .
Mmmm. . .

Thanks for visiting, my friends!
I hope you have a delightful day!

Well, would you look at that,
someone finished off the cake and coffee. . .

Hi Stephanie, I always love my quick sweet treat recipes, this looks really yummy. I enjoy making a sweet treat for my hubby's lunch through the week.
Hope you're getting some rain we have not gotten much at all. Very pretty day here so far. Thanks for sharing this will keep it in my files!

Anne Payne said...

Yummy! I have a similar recipe but this one sounds better. I am definitely going to this when my sister comes to visit in two weeks. You made me chuckle at the end! 😂

Anne Payne said...

Hey Roxy, I wish I could send you some of our rain! We are totally drenched from days and days of rain. Hope you get some relief soon!

Anne Payne said...

Oh Kitty, you are so right about her pictures! They would be lovely note cards.

Anne Payne said...

I'm going to do the same thing, Barbara!

Your cinnamon roll coffee cake looks scrumptious, Stephanie. I wish I had a piece to go with my coffee right now. I love anything with cinnamon. The rose plate you served it on is so pretty. It looks so moist, and the glaze, I'm sure, makes it. : )

May you enjoy the rest of these May days.

love, ~Sheri

Your cakes are always so delicious Stephanie, love the smell of cinnamon.

Margie said...

My sweet tooth is always needing a little something. Your cinnamon roll cake is the perfect accompaniment with tea.

P.S. Have you been receiving e-mail notifications for comments left on your blog? I haven't received any notifications since last weekend (and I haven't changed any of my settings) so I wonder if it's a Blogger glitch.

Carla from The River said...

Oh my, I just made your Cinnamon Twists and I will for sure be making this recipe as well. It looks wonderful. I love cinnamon too!

Mari said...

Yum! That looks like something my hubby would enjoy! Thanks for sharing.

Oh it looks so yummy and gooey! I LOVE cinnamon rolls but hardly ever have one as I have to eat TOTALLY gluten free.. can't even have one bite of that yummy goodness. But I know I could retweek this to be gluten free. I've been trying to eat less sugar, but seems like the more I try to eat less... the more I eat! Why is all that sweetness so darned good? Love your table setting and the pretty plate too and the darling napkin holder. Hugs.. Marilyn

Marilyn @ MountainTopSpice said...

I haven't made a cinnamon coffee cake in ages, now you've got me hankering for one! This sounds like a very easy and yummy recipe I've got to try! Of course, your photography is just beautiful too! I loved your last picture of the crumbs and empty cup! I trust you are doing well sweet friend! Summer is here with all its busy moments, and I am trying to find time to squeeze in a bit of blogging when I can. We wait for these precious moments all winter long, and I find it hard sitting down before the computer when the sun is shining, lol! Sweet hugs to you and many blessings :)

I wish I could stop by for tea and conversation (and cake!) - this one looks delicious. As I can't. I'll have to make my own, thanks for sharing this yummy recipe, dear Stephanie.

Teri said...

Dear Stephanie ... I tried your Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake. I actually divided the recipe in half and it turned out perfectly. We enjoyed it with our evening cups of coffee on our front porch. DELICIOUS! I hope that you are enjoying your month of June. Summer blessings to you and your family. Thank you for sharing. Homespun Hugs ♥ Teri

Stephanie, as scrumptious as your cake looks, I keep getting distracted by that china! What a beautiful rose pattern! What company makes that?

Annesphamily said...

Hi Stephanie, what a delicous looking treat! I am going to have to try this recipe.
I will try to write a logner email but was sad to hear you would no longer host the tea cup and mug exchange. I understand completely but you had such a good heart for it. I have been in a few other ones and sometime people we not very cordial. Anyway I am so sorry I was not in the final one. So much has been going on here that I was not on line as I like to be and blogging especially.
Harrison's mom lost her job so I no longer watch him and it hurts my heart because my son's MIL watches their Brody! I have gone through a "oh woe is me" spell too and I am shaking that off.
But I did want to say I hopre sometime I will be able to enjoy tea with you and your mom and sister again and perhaps other Colorado tea lovers. IT was wonderful meeting you and your family face to face at the Dusty Rose Tea House. Thank you for the friendship and your beautiful uplifting posts.

Ohhh dear friend, how delightfully SCRUMPTIOUS this looks! You have a talent for making my mouth water with your incredible recipes and the ever so wonderful photography of your baking creations. I have meant to comment on this for sometime and am sitting down happily to get to leave you a note today and say hello... and also write this down on a recipe card right now as "Stephanie's Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake", as am sitting at the kitchen table with the recipe tin at hand :)
I am thinking of you sweet friend and hoping you and your family are having a blessed and most fun summer thus far! I wanted to also just say I hope you all are very well, as I noticed it has been awhile since your last post and just wanted to make sure you are okay.

Love, blessings, and many hugs!
