Quick & Easy, Kid Friendly, Dessert,

If you are simply tired of making the standard chocolate and vanilla cake, then this recipe is for you! It's great for a special occasion and it will definitely remind you of cinnamon rolls. Just make sure you don't overcook the batter so the cake comes out moist rather than dry.

For the cake:
3 c all-purpose flour, sifted
1/4 tsp salt
1 c granulated sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1 and 1/2 c milk
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 c (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted

For the cinnamon filling:
1 c (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
1 c packed light brown sugar
2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp ground cinnamon

For the glaze:
2 c powdered sugar, sifted
5 Tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla extract

1. Grease a 9"x13" cake pan (or line it with parchment paper or aluminum foil and grease the sides and bottom). Set aside.
2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F or 200 degrees Celsius.
3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, salt, sugar and baking powder. Add milk, eggs and vanilla and whisk until smooth.
4. Slowly add the melted butter and whisk until everything is smooth. Spread the batter in the prepared pan. Set aside.

To make the filling:
5. In a medium mixing bowl, beat butter with electric mixer until creamy. Add sugar, flour and cinnamon and beat until fluffy, about 2 minutes. (It will look crumbly at first but keep beating, it will come together.)
6. Spread the filling over the cake batter, leaving at least 1 inch of space from the edge of the pan. Swirl gently with a off-set icing spatula or a rubber spatula.
7. Bake the cake for 28 to 32 minutes or until the toothpick inserted in the cake part comes out clean. Cool the cake for 15 minutes. Pour the glaze over the cake and spread evenly. To make the glaze:
8. Sift the powdered sugar over a medium mixing bowl. Add vanilla and milk and whisk together until smooth and drizzling consistency. Spread over still warm cake. Enjoy!
