Cinnamon Roll Cake (from Your Home Based Mom)
For the cake:
3 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 cups milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup melted butter
For the topping:
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Mix all cake ingredients together except for the melted butter. Slowly stir in melted butter. Pour batter into a 9x13 greased pan.
Mix all topping ingredients until well combined. Drop topping evenly over the cake batter and swirl with knife.
Bake at 350 F for 28 - 32 minutes. (I'm not sure why, maybe weather difference, but my cake baked for 45 minutes before a toothpick came out clean).

Now for the glaze. I did not use the same recipe that went along with this cake. I like cream cheese frosting with my cinnamon rolls, so I knew I had to make a cream cheese frosting for this cinnamon roll cake. Here is what I came up with:
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 ounces Mascarpone cheese, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
4 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons fresh orange juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Cream the 2 cheeses together until smooth. Add powdered sugar, milk, orange juice and vanilla. Mix until well blended. You can play around with the milk and orange juice combination to your liking - add more liquid to make it more of a drizzly consistency.
Drizzle or in my case spread : ) over warm cake.

for breakfast or dessert. : )
