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! 






 
CINNAMON ROLL 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


Glaze:
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.
