Cinnamon Roll Cake

20 min prep time, 25 min baking time, serves 6 people

This Cinnamon Roll Cake dessert has a similar flavor to cinnamon rolls but in a simpler cake form. By using premade dough you will cut down on the time it takes to make it, all while keeping that same great homemade taste. You can use the traditional cinnamon frosting, but we recommend the vanilla icing included in the recipe below.


  • 2 cans of cinnamon roll dough
  • 1 apple, sliced
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 tbsp vanilla


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C.
  2. Place a sheet of parchment paper on a loaf pan. Open the cans of cinnamon rolls and lay the pieces two at time across the pan.
