Cinnamon Roll Cake (from a cake mix)

My neighbor Chelsea gave me this beautiful loaf pan for Christmas

so when her birthday rolled around I decided to make her a cake in this pan and it turned out so pretty, don’t you think?


1 box yellow cake mix

1 small box instant vanilla pudding mix

4 eggs

3/4 cup milk

3/4 cup water

1 tablespoon vanilla


1/3 cup sugar

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1 Heat oven to 350. Spray loaf pan or pans (see yield not below) with cooking spray for baking.

2 Whisk together cake mix and pudding mix. Add eggs, milk, water, and vanilla and mix until smooth.

3 In a small bowl, whisk together sugar and cinnamon.

4 Spread half the batter into prepared pan and top with cinnamon sugar mixture then spread remaining batter over top of cinnamon sugar layer. Swirl everything together with a knife. (You can do more layers if you like, I just went with one.)

5 Bake for 45 – 55 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Allow to cool in pan for 15 – 20 minutes before removing to rack to cool completely.

Yield: the recipe said it would make one loaf cake but I had enough batter to make 1 large loaf cake and 1 small loaf
