Decadent Cinnamon Roll Butter Pound Cake

Who knew you could marry the two greatest desserts of all time and produce a love child of pure decadence. My Maple Cinnamon Roll Butter Pound Cake is the golden child and rival of all other dessert mash-ups. This extremely rich and moist cake is adorned with thick ribbons of cinnamon goodness. It’s like eating the middle part of the cinnamon roll throughout.

Cooking Instructions
  • Cake Ingredients

    3 cups flour (organic, unbleached)
    1/4 teaspoon sea salt
    1 cup of cane sugar (organic)
    4 teaspoons baking powder
    1 cup milk
    1/2 cup heavy cream
    2 eggs
    3 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
    3/4 cup butter, melted

    Cinnamon Roll Filling

    1 cup butter (softened)
    1 cup brown sugar (packed)
    2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
    3 1/2 tablespoons cinnamon
    2 tablespoons flour (organic, unbleached)

    Cream Cheese Icing

    4 oz cream cheese
    1/2 stick of butter
    1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
    1 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    2 teaspoons of milk

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    Using cooking spray, spray a 9 in non-stick rectangular baking pan (pound cake pan).

    In an electric or stand mixer add the flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, milk & cream, eggs and vanilla. Incorporate ingredients and slowly stir in melted butter.

    In a large bowl, cream butter, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and maple until well combined and creamy.

    Using a layering method, add some of the cake batter to the pan and then add the cinnamon filling. Using a knife swirl thick ribbons of the cinnamon throughout the cake. Repeat until all of the ingredients are used.

    Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. I personally prefer a cake cooked a bit under done, leaving a ooey gooey moist and rich cake.

    Remove from the over and let cool. Remove from the pan and pour icing over the cake. Serve warm and enjoy!
