Cinnamon Roll Cake

I saw this recipe on, where else, Pinterest (link). It's a cake that tastes like cinnamon rolls. It was a super easy recipe, whipped it up a little before fitar so it was warm for dessert. It needs to be served warm!

3 c. flour
1/4 tsp.salt
1 c. sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 c. milk
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. butter, melted

1 c. butter, softened
1 c. brown sugar
2 Tbsp. flour
1 Tbsp. cinnamon

Mix everything together except for the butter. Slowly stir in the melted butter and pour into a greased 9x13 pan. For the topping, mix all the ingredients together until well combined. Drop evenly over the batter and swirl with a knife. Bake at 350 for 28-32 minutes.

2 c. powdered sugar
5 Tbsp. milk
1 tsp. vanilla

Drizzle the glaze over the warm cake and serve.
