Cinnamon Roll Cake

This is a cake for people who say they don't like cake.  You can lie to them and tell'em it's a cinnamon roll or perhaps cinnamon coffee cake....but we cake lovers know it is CAKE! 

The original recipe can be found at Six Sisters' Stuff.  This is one tasty looking blog.

3 cups flour
1/4 t. salt
1 cup sugar
4 t. baking powder
1-1/2 cup milk
2 eggs
2 t. vanilla
4 T. butter, melted
2 sticks (1 cup) butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
2 T. flour
1 T. cinnamon
2/3 cups chopped pecans

2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
1-1/2 t. vanilla extract
6 T. butter, melted
4 T. hot water

With an electric mixer or stand-up mixer, mix flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, milk, eggs and vanilla. Once combined well, slowly stir in 4 tablespoons melted butter. Pour batter into a greased 9x13" baking pan. In a large bowl, mix the 2 sticks of softened butter, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and nuts until well combined. Drop evenly over cake batter by the tablespoon and use a knife to marble/swirl through the cake. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick comes out nearly clean from center. Place powdered sugar, melted butter, vanilla and hot water in a large bowl. Whisk until smooth. Poke holes in cake with a thin poker (I used a metal skewer). Drizzle over warm cake. Serve warm or at room temperature.
