- An all-time favorite sweet indulgence! This recipe re-creates the Cinnamon Roll into a low carb cake. Packed with warm cinnamon and brown sugar, this cake is complete with a cinnamon swirl and a drizzle of cream cheese glaze. Serve it for breakfast, lunch, or late-night dessert.
Scrumptious and easy to make! It tastes like the gooey center of a cinnamon roll in a soft and moist cake!
I absolutely LOVE anything to do with cinnamon rolls. Cinnabon’s are my top favorite, but far from low carb friendly….but any soft and gooey roll is my absolute weakness and favorite treat!
I also love cake, so naturally, this cake was right up my alley. Really anything spice flavored is my ideal dessert.
Let’s face it, cinnamon rolls are delicious. But very time intensive… All that rolling and needing and cutting… This cake gives you all the wonderful flavors in a much simpler way! Plus, your house is going to smell fantastic. Lol
The cake itself is very moist and soft – a good vanilla cake with those thick swirls of the cinnamon and brown sugar alternative . As it bakes, the cinnamon sugar mixture seeps deep into the cake, creating these delicious ribbons.
The cake is topped off with a simple glaze that really sends this cake over the top without being too sweet.
A Few Tips:
Use really fresh spices if possible… Using years old cinnamon is really not going to make this cake pop.
Be aware this batter is more like a dough. It will be VERY THICK, so don’t be alarmed.
This is also fully customizable… Putting in a few walnuts or chopped pecans would be delicious here.
I made our cake in an 8 x 8“ dish… But if you were serving a larger family or a crowd, this could easily be doubled into a 9 x 13“ dish.
Parchment or a well greased dish is essential. You want to get every last bit of cake out!
PRO TIP: Cinnamon Roll Cake tastes best when slightly warmed. If you have leftovers that get cool, just pop your slice of cake in the microwave for a few seconds to reheat.
CJ’S FOLLOW-UP TASTE TEST:
This recipe was outstanding, one of the best I’ve had in a while and that’s saying a lot. Moist, even after a couple of days, and the flavor was excellent. We hope you enjoy it.
