Grandma’s Cinnamon Bun Cake

My grandmother made this for us growing up, and you’d thought a bunch of puppies licked the pan clean after we got a hold of it. She loved to serve this with a cup of coffee as an afternoon snack, and it always hit the spot…followed by a nap.

This is literally like eating a cinnamon bun in a cake, with MUCH less preparation involved. It’s easy to throw together, and perfect as a potluck or having around the house on the weekends. Eating a special breakfast is one of my favorite things to do the weekends, which means you’ll always find something like muffins, coffee cake, pancakes, bacon and eggs, and lots of coffee around our house.
