Cinnamon Roll Cake, gluten free of course and A-mazing!

     There has been a recipe on Pinterest going round and round. I converted the gluten-full recipe to gluten free before I started blogging. One of our new members to the facebook page found the picture that I took of the yummy cake when I had made it and requested the recipe. I decided that I may as well make it into a blog post because that cake is A-Mazing!! This cake needs to be on record!!
     I think that this cake is THE PERFECT answer to a cinnamon roll for folks who are gluten free. I have tried making cinnamon rolls gluten free and I can't get them perfect. I am then, of course, frustrated and still have the craving. However, this cake fixes all that. It is quick to mix up, moist, dreamy, warm, and soooo yummy. It's perfect for a gluten free cinnamon roll craving! LOVE IT!

Cinnamon Roll Cake - Gluten Free

3 c. Gluten Free Flour Mix
1/2 tsp. Xanthan Gum
1/4 tsp.salt
1 c. sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 c. milk
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. butter, melted

Cinnamon Swirl:
1 c. butter, softened
1 c. brown sugar
2 T. Gluten Free Flour Mix
1 T. cinnamon

Mix everything together except for the butter. Slowly stir in the melted butter and pour into a greased 9x13 pan. For the cinnamon swirl, mix all the ingredients together until well combined. Drop evenly over the batter and swirl with a knife. Bake at 350 for 28-32 minutes.

2 c. powdered sugar
5 Tbsp. milk
1 tsp. vanilla

While the cake is still warm drizzle the glaze over the top. Serve warm.

The cake batter goes together super fast.

I think that honestly the cinnamon swirl does best when you almost melt the butter completely instead of just soften it.

Swirl with a knife and into the oven it goes.
Glaze while the cake is still warm and serve warm.
This cake is SOoooooo yummy and is a great cure for those cinnamon roll cravings.

I hope you enjoy this gluten free version of Cinnamon Roll Cake. I know I do!
