I wanted to make cinnamon rolls but didn’t have the ingredients to make them. I did have a box of cake mix in the pantry, so I made this instead. I love making a great dessert that starts with a cake mix. It doesn’t get much easier. This cake has become one of my favorite cakes to make- and eat!
Cinnamon Roll Cake
- yellow or white cake mix, prepared according to box directions
- 1 tablespoon meringue powder
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 2-3 teaspoons cinnamon
- 2 cups confectioner’s sugar
- few tablespoons warm water (I did not use an exact measurement)
Prepare cake mix according to box directions and add meringue powder. Pour half of the batter into a cake pan of your choice. Combine brown sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle half of the mixture over cake batter. Add remaining batter and cover with remaining sugar and cinnamon. Swirl with a knife. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. To make the frosting, slowly add warm water to confectioner’s sugar until you get a smooth, thick glaze. Spread over warm cake.
