Cinnamon roll cake takes your basic yellow cake mix box to the next level! The top of the cake batter is swirled with cinnamon and brown sugar (the part that goes in the middle of the cinnamon rolls



  • 1 15oz Box Yellow Cake Mix
  • 4 eggs
  • ¾ cup oil
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • Topping:
  • 1 cup of melted butter
  • 1 cup brown Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • Icing:
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 4 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tsp of vanilla


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Mix the first 4 ingredients by hand or with a mixer till blended. Do not use ingredients on the back of the box. 
  3. Pour into a 9 x 13 inch baking pan. 
  4. Mix together brown sugar, melted butter and cinnamon in a smaller bowl. Swirl into batter with a knife. I did this, by dropping tablespoons of the butter/sugar mixture on top of the cake so they were evenly distributed, and used a knife to swirl the mixture around. 
  5. Bake at 325 for 35-40 minutes.
  6. Let cake cool 10-15 minutes before icing. Mix together powdered sugar and milk. Pour over warm cake.
