Now for the ingredients of this cake, you need batches of ingredients for the topping, cake and the glaze. The cake is made from simple ingredients like flour, sugar, vanilla, eggs, baking powder, and butter. The topping has some pecans in it for some added texture and the icing is made from a simple mixture of icing sugar and milk with a little bit of vanilla. Very simple to make indeed. You will also need some basic baking tools like a large bowl where you will do the mixing. If you don't have a mixer, you can always mix vigorously by hand. While you're preparing the mixture, it's best to preheat the oven to 350 degrees. The cake is then baked, and then, once it is out of the oven, the glaze is drizzled over top of it for some added sweetness. So you have a cake that tastes like a cinnamon roll, bout doesn't take all of the time and the effort to make, like cinnamon rolls do. The bread dough can be a little harder to make than a simple cake batter, so that is saving you a lot of work right there. If you are craving some cinnamon rolls this recipe is worth trying.
