Cinnamon Roll Cake Recipe

Cinnamon Roll Cake Recipe

Note: This recipe does great doubled, I like to make one with cinnamon and brown sugar (as listed in the Spice Ripple Recipe) and one swapping the brown sugar for granulated, and swapping the cinnamon for cardamom.

Can (and should) be mixed by hand.



-Preheat your oven to 350 f.
-Spray your loaf pan lightly with non-stick spray, then line the bottom of your pan with parchment paper, leaving a slight overhang for ease of cake-removal later.
-In a medium bowl, whisk together your AP flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
-In a large bowl add your 1 cup of sugar, melted butter, and oil, whisking until sugar is saturated with fat and no dry spots remain.
-Whisk in your eggs + yolk, then continue to whisk for 1 minute or so, until the mixture has a few bubbles and is slightly frothy. Then whisk in your yogurt and vanilla extract until fully incorporated.
-Swap your whisk for a silicone spatula and begin to add your dry ingredients — mix in ⅓ of your dries until homogenous. Repeat until all is added and no dry spots or lumps remain (If lumps remain after mixing with spatula, just mix a few times with the whisk).
