By now you probably know two things about me. I love cinnamon rolls but I have a strange, almost unreasonable aversion to actually making them. For that reason, I’m always looking for cinnamon roll shortcut recipes.
A few weeks back I was smitten with Cinnamon Roll Muffins, this week I’m in love with Pull Apart Cinnamon Cake. With a few tubes of store bought biscuits, melted butter and a cinnamon sugar mixture, you’ll have cinnamon roll cake coming out of the oven before you know it.
Cinnamon Roll Pull Apart Cake
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
3 cans refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
1/2 cup butter, melted & divided
4 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1-2 tbsp milk
Cut the biscuit dough into quarters with kitchen scissors. Mix sugar and cinnamon in a medium bowl.
Dip the biscuits into the melted butter then roll biscuit dough in the cinnamon/sugar mixture.
Place the biscuits into a greased bundt or tube pan. Drizzle with remaining melted butter.
Sprinkle leftover cinnamon/sugar mixture over the top of the biscuit dough and butter.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Bake for 40-45 minutes until golden. Let loaf stand for 5 minutes. Invert onto a plate.
Beat cream cheese and powdered sugar in a bowl with an electric mixer until well blended. Add milk beating until desired consistency is desired. Spoon glaze over warm loaf.
