Cinnamon Roll Cake

If you love cinnamon rolls you're going to love this giant shortcut cinnamon roll cake, made using Rhodes frozen dough.

Rhodes Cinnamon Roll Cake 1Hi everyone! It's Tina from Mommy's Kitchen and I'm back sharing another tasty recipe using my favorite frozen bread dough. We love cinnamon rolls at our house, but I don't always have the time to make them from scratch. That's where this shortcut recipe comes into play.

The secret behind this recipe is using Rhodes frozen dough as the base for your cinnamon roll dough and adding the remainder of the ingredients from scratch. Rhodes frozen dough is perfect for baking because it tastes just as good and bakes up soft and fluffy like homemade bread dough.  

Cinnamon Roll Cake slice We've all heard the saying that "everything is bigger in Texas" and that holds true for today's recipe for this giant Cinnamon Roll Cake. This delicious cake is filled with soft, gooey cinnamon roll layers, a lightly browned crust, and topped with a simple vanilla glaze. If you love cinnamon rolls, then you're going to love this giant cinnamon roll.

I baked this recipe in my 11 inch cast iron skillet, but you can also use a large pie plate. This cinnamon roll cake looks so pretty when plated because you can see all the ooey-gooey layers once it's sliced. This recipe is a must bake if you have a cinnamon roll lover in your house. 

Cinnamon Roll Cake IngredientsThese are the ingredients you'll need: Rhodes frozen dinner rolls, butter, brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon, vanilla extract, milk and powdered sugar. 

Cinnamon Roll Cake Instructions 1Place the dinner rolls on a large baking sheet that has been sprayed with non stick spray. Let the rolls thaw until soft, but still cold.

Cinnamon Roll Cake Instructions 2On a lightly floured surface combine the rolls into one dough ball. Knead the rolls together for 2-minutes to combine the rolls. Roll the dough into a 15 x 12 inch rectangle. If the dough resists a bit, let the dough rest
for about 5 minutes and continue rolling again. 

Cinnamon Roll Cake Instructions 3Using a pastry brush, spread the softened butter evenly on top of the dough. In a small bowl combine the cinnamon, sugar and brown sugar. Sprinkle the sugar mixture over the dough.

Cinnamon Roll Cake Instructions 4 Spray an 11-12 inch cast iron skillet or a 10 inch pie plate with non stick baking spray. Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut the dough into seven 1 1/2 inch strips.

Cinnamon Roll Cake Pinch the ends together each time you add a dough strip. You want the pieces to be a bit loose so the dough has room to expand as it rises. Some of the filling may fall out as you roll the dough pieces, but you can just sprinkle it on top before rising.

Cinnamon Roll Cake Rising Cover the skillet or pie plate with plastic wrap that has been sprayed with non stick spray and allow the dough to rise in a draft free place, until double in size (about 1 hour).

Cinnamon Roll Cake Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake the cinnamon roll cake for 30 - 35 minutes or until the top is golden brown. If the top browns too quickly cover with aluminum foil. As the cake bakes don't be alarmed if a few spots rise up more than others. When you remove the cake from the oven to cool those spots will go down.
