Cinnamon Bun Cake

While I love them, I don’t make cinnamon buns {from scratch} very often. They don’t take a lot of time to make, yet I seem to have very little time for baking these days, so bring on the easy recipes!

A great example of ‘wow, that was so simple’ is Cinnamon Bun Cake, a recipe given to me by a Mom in my daughters’ class. All the same delicious Cinnamon Bun taste, yet instead with a ‘mix and bake’ recipe. I just love it!


And yes, it calls for a lot of butter. Close your eyes while adding until mixed πŸ˜‰

So delicious, you just have to try, you’re welcome!

    This cake sounds absolutely divine! My family would go crazy if I made it for them. In a good way of course. Now I’m super hungry!
