I adore cinnamon rolls. Seriously who doesn’t? As I type this, I am imagining one now with its soft chewy dough filled with a buttery cinnamon swirl and topped with that pillow of glaze that takes this gooey treat over the top. Sounds great right? (Sorry if you are now craving cinnamon rolls but at least I have this cinnamon roll pound cake now).
I also adore pound cake (you may also already know this since I have a bunch of pound cake recipes on my blog). I grew up on this dessert more than anything else so I knew cinnamon rolls and pound cake would make a great pair. But a cinnamon roll pound cake was even more perfect to share with Yahoo! Shine’s Favorite Childhood Recipes.
To make the cinnamon roll pound cake, I added a lovely buttery cinnamon swirl to one of my fave basic pound cake recipes and topped it with that addictive cream cheese glaze cinnamon rolls are known for.
Yep this recipe definitely made me proud. It is perfect for breakfast, brunch or even after dinner. And its perfect for a work snack. I am rationalizing as I eat another slice and finish this post.
