Just when I thought cinnamon buns couldn’t get any better, I found this Giant Cinnamon Roll Cake! I have yet to meet someone that can pass up a cinnamon roll (unless you gave up sugar for lent or are gluten free…sorry girls!!) and I’m certainly not one of them. We were celebrating a friends birthday during a morning bible study, so this seemed like a better option than cake. Don’t get me wrong, I have had cake for breakfast more than once, but this just seemed like a fun and different option. Wouldn’t it be sweet to surprise a spouse or child with this for breakfast on their birthday?? I know I’d be thankful!
Make sure you prepare ahead of time because the dough will need time to rise, but other than that, you shouldn’t run into any issues with this recipe. After shaping the dough into the dish and looking at the sad drooping dough I thought I had ruined it. But after I let it rise for nearly an hour and a half (in the over as the recipe recommends) it puffed up gloriously filling up the dish entirely. Oh and the smell, watch out, it’s dangerous!
