Special Breakfast Tomorrow?

Do you ever make something special for breakfast on the weekends? If so, you’re going to want to try this new recipe that I made last weekend. It’s oh-holy-cow yummy. It’s going to be on my menu for all special breakfasts in the foreseeable future! (Also appropriate for dessert any time.)

Buttery-Cinnabun-CakeButtery Cinnabun Cake (originally from Picky Palate)

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 Tbsp. flour, 1 Tbsp. cinnamon

Glaze: 2 cups powdered sugar, 5 Tbsp. milk, 1 tsp. vanilla

Mix all cake ingredients together except for the butter. Mix well and then slowly add the 1/2 cup melted butter as your mixer continues to mix. Pour batter into greased 9 x 13 pan.

Mix topping ingredients until well blended. Drop evenly over the top of the batter and swirl lightly with a knife.

Bake at 350 degrees for 28-32 minutes.

Top with glaze while warm.

My friend Jody says she can tell I have a sweet tooth by all of the dessert recipes I choose to pin on Pinterest. I ask you – is there anything wrong with that? No, there is not.

We’re having fun seeing all of the yarn and colors you’re picking out for your Camp Loopy projects! I have to say, it’s making me go back and forth about my final choice. I’m the one who goes through and applies the discount to your orders, so I’ve taken note of what each and every one of you are picking out. Such pretty colors and combinations. I need to just stop looking.

Have a great (sweet) weekend – with or without Cinnabun Cake!

  1. That sounds delicious! There’s nothing wrong with a sweet tooth, as long as you have plenty of yarn to knit larger sized clothes!

    I must say, it cracked me up when I clicked your Pinterest link and the first board name is shortened to “Favorites from the Loo…” If my bathroom was filled with all that yarny goodness, I would never come out!

  2. I wish I had time tomorrow for this breakfast! It’ll have to be shelved until Monday at the earliest, as I have to work tomorrow (ugh! On a Saturday!?)

    It does look yummy!

  3. You do not want to look at my Pinterest then. I swear that mine is almost half sweets, and only because I try really hard to not pin more sweets than that.

    This breakfast cake looks gorgeous, and it would be mine if I hadn’t cut all sugar out for at least a month (trying to curb the addiction, you know).

  4. Woohoo thank you Sheri for a lovely addition to our menu! 🙂 I’ll have to adjust for gluten / dairy intolerances, but I’m sure it’ll make it down the hatch lol
    Have a WONDERFUL Mother’s Day weekend!! 🙂

  5. No fair Sher! I am on Weight Watchers. I think I gained weight just reading the recipe. I follow you on Pinterest so I am sure it is going to be repinned into my breakfast and dessert pins for sometime in the future.

    I hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day!

  6. Hi Sheri! Thanks for the recipe! There are some yummy ones on Pinterest. I am still deciding on what my first project will be for Camp Loopy! There are so many beautiful things to make. Many creative people in this world! Me, being a slow knitter and all, I have to choose wisely for the month allotted time! :). Have a wonderful Mother’s Day! Hope you will get to see your kids!

  7. This looks amazing! You always have the best recipes here Sheri!

    Christienne, I am in the same boat. What would you use to sub for the butter?

  8. The amount of butter in that recipe is sinful! That’s got to be why it’s so yummy 😀 I might have to give that one a try. Thanks for sharing!

  9. I just finished making this for breakfast for my wife and mother-in-law. We haven’t cut into it yet, but it looks amazing. We have to have our eggs, bacon and sausage first. 🙂

    Thank you for the recipe.

  10. I commented here earlier (around 1pm Sunday) but it never showed up, so here’s a second attempt.

    I shocked myself by making this for Mother’s Day brunch today, along with scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage. My wife and mother-in-law both seemed to enjoy it. I guess I get an “A” in following a recipe. 😉 This recipe is a keeper.

  11. I made it! Sweet, sweet, sweet…and yummy. My son-in-law and grandkids made it disappear in no time.
    Thanks, Sheri, for the recipe!

  12. I made this for my knitting group and they loved it! Everyone asked for the recipe. Thanks for sharing!
