This is for Fritz. Happy Birthday!
Fritz is the leader of our Bible Fellowship class, and as you might guess, today is his birthday. His wife said that he is not a “fruit” person for breakfast… I think she said he is “old fashioned”. Specifically for classics like french toast, pancakes…cinnamon rolls….. So here is my version of an OMG cake made out of cinnamon rolls. Some people refer to this as monkey bread… but seeing that I use cinnamon rolls versus biscuits, I don’t think I am wrong renaming it. My major reference was from the Pillsbury site. I must warn you, this is not a forgiving cake. If you wish to keep your calorie count under 2000 for the day, you might want to go for the fruit dish.
OMG Cinnamon Roll Cake
- 2 pkg Grands Sweet Rolls, made with Cinnabon Cinnamon
- 1 stick of butter
- 3/4 cups packed brown sugar
- Cinnamon Sugar Mixture
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Prep a Bundt pan with cooking spray.
Melt the butter in a saucepan, when melted, stir in the brown sugar. Keep the heat on low while preparing the rolls, stirring regularly.
Open both tubes of sweet rolls, set the frosting aside. Slice each roll into quarters. Place the rolls in one layer, “strategically”, in the pan. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over rolls. Continue layering the rolls and topping with sugar. Once completed, pour the butter mixture over the rolls. Bake for 38 – 45 minutes, or until a toothpick is clean. Note, you may need to cover the pan with foil about half-way through to avoid over browning the top.
Remove from oven and cool in pan for about 10 minutes, then invert onto serving tray. Place the frosting(s) in the microwave for 15 seconds the pour over the cake. Slice and serve!
*If you are wondering about the darker color of the rolls, I didn’t have any light brown sugar, so I had to use dark. It no doubt affected the color, but if anything, added to the taste!
