This Lazy Sunday Cinnamon Roll Cake is the perfect meal to roll right out of bed for. This is basically (you guessed it) a cinnamon roll in cake form, which is something everyone can get behind if it passes for a breakfast item, right? This easy cake recipe is also delicious served as a dessert or as a sweet little snack with a nice strong cup of coffee. So light and sweet, the cake is perfectly complemented by the milk and honey glaze drizzled over the top. Grab your fork, because this is one cake recipe you are going to want to try!

Cooking Time35 min


  • Ingredients for Cake
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • Cinnamon Topping
  • 1 cup softened butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • Glaze
  • 2 cups confectioner’s sugar
  • 5 tablespoons milk or cream
  • 2 tablespoons honey


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray or grease a baking pan.

  2. Mix all dry cake ingredients in a large bowl. In a medium bowl, beat egg with milk, water, and vanilla. Add the melted butter to the dry cake ingredients, and then stir in the egg/milk mixture, mixing until all dry ingredients are incorporated. 

  3. Pour cake batter into prepared pan. Set aside.

  4. In another bowl, beat the topping ingredients until they form a paste.

  5. Drop topping randomly over top of cake batter. Using a spatula, flatten the topping into the top part of the cake batter.

  6. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center come out clean. Remove from oven and cool slightly on a rack. 

  7. Mix the glaze ingredients in a small bowl, adding only enough milk or cream to make a thick but pourable glaze.

  8. Drizzle glaze over cake and let it set about 15 minutes.

What size pan is recommended? It looks like an 8x8 in the video. But someone else in the comments mentioned using an 9x13

Is there such a thing as a Sunday morning that is not lazy? This Lazy Sunday Cinnamon Roll Cake, lets you be lazy, and still serve your family a yummy, moist, cake that they will love waking up to. I love the addition of honey to the glaze, I have never made it that way before, it's absolutely terrific. Go ahead and be lazy, you will be glad you did.

I made this cake and since there are only two of us, I cut the recipe in half and baked it in an 8 X 8 inch pan. After I put the cinnamon topping on the batter I swirled some of it into the cake batter. The cake is very good, moist and has a nice texture. I will be making this cake again. If you make the full recipe you will need a 9 X 13 inch pan. This is a winner.

This recipe says to grease or spray a baking pan, but it does not give the size of the pan to be used. I would like to try this recipe. It sounds like a keeper. Angela Rose

For a cake, this looks remarkably simple! I'm not much of a baker, but I think I could pull this off.

This is a great idea - LOVE cinnamon rolls, so a cinnamon roll CAKE is even better!

This is not a single week that passes that there is not some sort of cinnamon roll that passes into our home. If you were to prick my husband's finger, he would bleed cinnamon glaze. I am just as guilty I love cinnamon rolls but not as much as he does. Here is a twist on the all-time favorite.

A cinnamon roll cake! I have to try this. I love cinnamon rolls and I usually have a stash of store bought ones. This does seem to be a little time consuming but if the end result is what I am hoping for, good buy store bought cinnamon roll.

Cinnamon rolls are one of my favorite things to have for breakfast and having it in the form a cake instead well, that's just worth waking up for all on its own...and I honestly can't believe I never thought of this before. Personally, I prefer the flavor of cinnamon over icing so I think I'll try swirling the topping into the cake itself, throwing in some raisins, and leaving out the icing. Or I think they actually have cinnamon chips on the market now that would be amazing in the icing. Yum!!!
