  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • Topping:
    • 1 cup butter, softened
    • 1 cup brown sugar
    • 2 tablespoons flour
    • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • Glaze:
    • 2 cups powdered sugar
    • 5 tablespoons milk
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter a 9 x 13 baking pan.
  2. Prepare the Base: In a mixing bowl, combine flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, milk, eggs, and vanilla. Mix until well combined. Add the melted butter, stirring until the batter is smooth. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan.
  3. Prepare the Topping: In a separate bowl, mix together softened butter, brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Drop spoonfuls of this mixture over the base batter. Use a butter knife to gently swirl the topping into the batter.
  4. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for 28-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. The aroma of cinnamon will fill your kitchen as the cake bakes to perfection.
  5. Prepare the Glaze: While the cake is baking, prepare the glaze. In a bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla until smooth. Set aside.
  6. Glaze the Cake: Once the cake is done baking, remove it from the oven. While it’s still warm, drizzle the glaze evenly over the top, allowing it to seep into the crevices and enhance the sweetness of the cake.
  7. Serve and Enjoy: Allow the cake to cool slightly before slicing into squares. Serve warm and savor the delectable combination of fluffy cake, cinnamon swirls, and sweet glaze.
  8. Optional Garnish: For an extra touch, you can sprinkle additional cinnamon on top or add a few crushed nuts.
