Ingredients

Base:

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 cup melted butter

Topping:

  • 1 cup softened butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon

Glaze:

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 5 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

  1. Preheat and Prepare: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×13 inch baking pan.
  2. Mix the Base: In a large bowl, whisk together flour, salt, sugar, and baking powder. Add milk, eggs, and vanilla, and mix until smooth. Stir in the melted butter until well combined.
  3. Prepare the Topping: In another bowl, blend softened butter, brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon until it forms a crumbly mixture.
  4. Layer and Swirl: Pour half of the base mixture into the prepared pan. Sprinkle half of the topping over it. Repeat with the remaining base and topping. Use a knife to swirl the layers for that signature cinnamon bun look.
  5. Bake to Perfection: Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. Make the Glaze: While the cake is baking, whisk together powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla until smooth.
  7. Finish with Glaze: Once the cake is out of the oven, drizzle the glaze over the warm cake. Allow it to set for a few minutes before slicing and serving.

Cook Notes and Variations

  • Serve Warm: For the best experience, serve the CINNA-BUN CAKE warm. The gooey texture and aroma will transport you to cinnamon bun heaven.
  • Add Nuts or Raisins: Enhance the texture and flavor by incorporating chopped nuts or raisins into the topping or base mixture.
  • Cream Cheese Frosting: If you’re a cream cheese lover, consider swapping the glaze for a cream cheese frosting. Simply mix softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla until smooth.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q: Can I make this ahead of time?

A: Absolutely! Bake the cake without the glaze, and refrigerate. Warm individual servings in the microwave and drizzle with glaze before serving.

Q: Can I freeze leftovers?

A: Yes, you can freeze the cake (unglazed) for up to three months. Thaw in the refrigerator and warm before serving.

Q: Can I make it gluten-free?

A: Certainly! Substitute the all-purpose flour with a gluten-free flour blend for a delicious gluten-free version.

Keto and Low-Carb Versions

For those following a ketogenic or low-carb lifestyle, fear not! Here are adaptations to suit your dietary preferences:

Keto Version:

Replace the all-purpose flour with almond flour, and use a sugar substitute in both the base and topping. Adjust the quantities according to your preferred sweetener’s instructions.

Low-Carb Version:

Reduce the sugar in the base and topping by half, and use a low-carb milk alternative. Almond or coconut milk works well.
