It’s Friday at The Midnight Goose, and we all know that means that I’m bringing you a yummy recipe. And it’s always one that you can easily do with a loved one–or by yourself–because who wants to share cake? Not my tubbly ass.
Regardless of whether you decide to make and/or share this recipe with a loved one (or that friend you just made on in the psych ward–no judgement), it’s an amalgam of two things almost everyone loves. And if they don’t love these two things, cut ‘em out of your life. No one needs that booshit in their life. Anyhoozles, those two things are cinnamon rolls and coffee cake! Yum!
Here’s what you’ll need:
For the Cake:
3 cups all-purpose flour
¼ tsp salt
¾ cup sugar
4 tsp baking soda
1 ¾ cup milk
3 tsp vanilla
½ cup melted butter
For the Cinnamon Swirl
¼ cup melted butter
¾ cup dark brown sugar (light brown is okay, too)
1 tbsp cinnamon
For the Icing
2 cups powdered sugar
2-3 tbsp milk (whole, skin, almond, soy, etc. is fine)
1 tsp vanilla
Let me start this out by saying that my wife, Jodi, was going to help me make this recipe, and you’d see lots of goods pictures of us “enjoying” the process. At the last minute, however, she decided she’d sit at the table and watch because “you know how you get in the kitchen”.* I’m not quite sure what she means by that…
***PREHEAT YOUR OVEN TO 350 BEFORE STARTING***
First, make your cake batter:
Add all of the dry ingredients (flour, salt, sugar, and baking soda) to a large bowl. Sifting is unnecessary. Pour in your milk, add your two eggs, vanilla, and melted butter, and stir until combined.
Pour into a 9×13 cake pan that has been sprayed with nonstick spray. Mmmmmm. Butter flavor.
Second, make your cinnamon swirl
On top of the stove, in a small sauce pan, melt your butter, then turn off the heat. Stir in the cinnamon and brown sugar and remove from the stove.
Next, let’s add the cinnamon swirl to the cake. Spoon large “plops” of the swirl all over the cake. Then, using a butter knife, simply swirl the cinnamon swirl through the cake batter until swirled throughout evenly. That’s the most times I’ve said “swirl” in a single sentence. Surely there’s a prize or some type of recognition for that shit…
Bake in your 350 degree preheated oven for 30-35 minutes.
Third, make your glaze
In a bowl, stir together your powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla until smooth and all lumps are gone. Set this aside until the cake is done baking.
Fourth, glaze and enjoy
Once the cake is out of the oven, let rest for five minutes. Next, drizzle the icing evenly all over, let set another five minutes, and enjoy!
Happy Friday, everyone!
