Cinnamon Roll Cake

Okay...I have a confession. Yesterday I ate a smore for breakfast. Yes, its true. It was delicious. And today, I made cake. For breakfast. I love running, that's all I have to say about that.
This recipe comes from the blog, "The girl who ate everything". It is very sweet. It is very cakey. Maybe better for dessert than breakfast. Lesson learned.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
Start with 3 cups flour.

 Then you'll add 1 1/2 cups milk (I used skim, as though it'll make a difference)
 1 tsp vanilla
4 tsp baking powder
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
2 eggs

Mix well.....
 You'll want to stop and scrape down the sides, then mix a little more....

Add melted butter. Mix well.

Spread batter evenly into a greased 13x9 inch pan. I love bakers joy, by the way.....just a little fyi

Now for the topping:

Down the hatch:)

Show me a baker who says they don't eat brown sugar straight, and I'll show you a filthy liar.

Mix together 2 sticks (1 cup) butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
2 Tbs flour
1 Tbs Cinnamon
3/4 cup chopped pecans if you're feelin it today,
I  was not.

I did, however throw in 1 or 2 or 8 extra shakes of cinnamon.

 Again, you'll want to scrape down the sides....

I know, this looks gross. Just toss the cinnamon mixture haphazardly wherever you want. I did. The floor, the cupboard door, go crazy.

Then take a knife and make swirly twirly pretty patterns all over the cake.

This is what your cake should look like. Unless it doesn't. I'm sure yours looks fine.

Bake for 25-30 minutes at 350. That's what my recipe said. It lied to me. It ended up baking around 40 minutes. I haven't met your oven. Just bake it for 30 minutes and then stick a toothpick into it to test doneness. If its not done, check again every 5 minutes till the toothpick comes out clean.

Now go wash your dishes. You slob.

Heres a little sideways view of the Glaze. Sorry, forgot to turn it. Bummer. You will need:  2 cups Powdered Sugar, 5 Tbs Milk and 1 tsp vanilla. Mix well.
Drizzle glaze over warm cake. Serve warm or at room temperature.

You are hilarious! I love your commentary along the way and I can hear you saying it all. This looks scrumptious. You didn't throw any down the drain did you?

p.s. Are you gonna put any healthy recipes on here? :)
