How to Make a Cinnamon Roll Cake #Recipe

I seriously have a sweet tooth.  I try to keep sweets a treat here and there. If not I'd be eating them all up and then whining about them landing on my hips . You girls know how that goes.  Specially when it is as good as this cake recipe I'm fixing to share with you all.  I mean think of two favorites like cinnamon rolls and cake and then combine them.  Hello SUCCESS this cinnamon roll cake is pure YUMMINESS!

Cinnamon Rolls are just one of them foods that are good any time whether it be breakfast or dessert. I have to say I have a weakness for them.  They always make me think of being pregnant with my oldest.  When I was pregnant with her I would go to my Doctor appointments and then head right on over to the mall and visit Cinnabon.  I know not the healthiest thing to have a craving for.  Of course this could be part of the reason I also gained way to much weight with her.  OOPS. Thank goodness all went well and I had one healthy baby girl. I'm so blessed. Now she is all grown up, going to college, engaged and living her life as a young woman.  I'm so proud of that girl. Can't you tell!

Anyway enough of the sentiments and memories lets get to that recipe.  Here you go friends. Enjoy!
