Not even remotely close to the taste of a cinnabon roll.... But note to others the topping is not in the least bit runny. The butter is SOFTENED not melted. Would not make again :-(
This may be my new favorite dessert. I'm not sure it tastes like a cinnabon but it is really good. I also like how it's made with ingredients I usually have on hand.
I got this recipe from a friend via Facebook. The only difference is that I only used 4 Tablespoons of melted butter in the cake batter. And, the cake still turned out rich & moist & fluffy! Great cinnabon flavour!!
