Cinnamon Roll Cake

Several months ago one of the ladies in our Creating Heartstrings group made this dessert!  We cook dinner for the families staying at the Ronald McDonald House in Dallas every other month.  It is always fun to see what people make for dessert.  We have to make everything there from the main course to the dessert, they have a wonderful commercial kitchen! 

One of our ladies, Jan made this dessert and it was a hit, everyone wanted the recipe!

This is pretty easy to put together and they really look like cinnamon rolls!  What you do is drop a butter mixture that has cinnamon and sugar onto the cake batter and swirl with your knife giving you the look of a cinnamon rolls!

This is a great recipe for Company during the Holidays...... this also reminds me a lot like coffee cake!  I didn't even use a mixer it just mixed it by hand, easy peasy!
