How to Make Cinnamon Roll Cake:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In stand-up mixer or electric mixer, you will want to mix up your flour, granulated sugar, salt, and baking powder. Once you mix that up, then add in the milk, eggs, vanilla, and the 4 tbs butter.

Once you have it well mixed and a bit creamy, pour into a greased 9×13 baking dish.
Then in a separate bowl, you will want to then mix all the ingredients for the cinnamon sugar mix. Once you have that mixed well, you will drop it evenly over the cake. Then take a nife and marble/swirl it over the cake like pictured above.
