Food Friday — Cinnamon Bun Cake

Miss Bee had a study sleepover last night with a friend and asked me if I would make muffins or coffee cake for them for breakfast.  I found a recipe on Pinterest recently so I decided it was easy enough to make on a work day morning.  In case you want the recipe for later it’s pinned to my bread and muffins board.  BTW…I rarely crack open any of my cookbooks lately.  I wonder if searching the web and resources like Pinterest have affected cookbook sales…

So you don’t have to go straight to the site (source: Iamaddictedtorecipes.blogspot.com) I’ll just give you the recipe below:

Base:

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

Topping:

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
2 TBL flour
1 TBL cinnamon

Glaze:

2 cups powdered sugar
5 TBL milk or half and half
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350.  Butter a 9×13 baking pan.

Mix all the base ingredients together, with the exception of the butter.  Add the butter last to the base and then pour the batter into the prepared baking pan.

Mix all of the topping ingredients together in a separate bowl, you may have to use two knives to break up the softened butter so the mixture is crumbly.  Sprinkle evenly on top of the base.  Bake for 28-30 minutes.

While the cake is baking, prepare the glaze and set aside.

Remove the cake from the oven and pour on the glaze.

Kick the kids out of the house and give your spouse a list of errands to run.  Take pan to your bedroom, and whilst still in your pjs, eat the entire pan with a good cup of coffee.  Yes, it’s that good.

What will you be making this weekend?
