Cinnamon Roll Cake

Slowly I am chipping away at the list of recipes I want to try out, so after dinner last night I decided I wanted to bake something. Since it was a little late, I decided to make something quick, I chose the Cinnamon Roll Cake. I first saw the recipe on 3B's...Baseball, Baking & Books but the original post came from Abby Sweet's. This was a super simple recipe and it smelled awesome while it was baking.

Cinnamon Roll Cake

Yellow Cake Mix
4 eggs
¾ cup oil
1 cup sour cream
Mix by hand and pour in 13 x 9 greased baking pan.
1 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon
Mix and pour over cake batter.
Swirl into batter with knife.

Bake @ 325 for 40 minutes. (Mine took about 35 minutes)
Let cake cool 10 – 15 minutes before icing.

Icing: 2 cups powdered sugar
4 tbsp milk (I used a little more than 4tbsp)
Pour over warm cake.

My friends at work loved it! They usually wait a little while before tasting whatever I bring, but since this was somewhat breakfast-ish they dug right in!
