"Uses a cake mix to recreate the gooey goodness of cinnamon rolls without all the extra work. In my opinion, anything that combines cinnamon rolls with cake is a definite winner!"

"WOW! Made exactly as written. So very good & SWEET. We love cinnamon rolls for breakfast around here, this would be a nice change up once in a while. I made this around dinnertime today and I don't think our cake will make an appearance for breakfast. may just have to whip up another....
The icing makes this, do NOT leave it off."
"This was good and fast. I prefer yeast-y cinnamon rolls, but that's definitely not fast. Next time, I think it would be better to put in 1/2 the batter, then 1/2 the cinnamon mix, repeat, and then swirl. Put 1 tsp vanilla in the icing and used Costco Saigon cinnamon which is pretty strong. Probably should have used part applesauce for the oil, but didn't."
"This is an exceptional cake. I expected it to be fine, maybe even good, but it is AMAZING. So wonderfullly sweet and cinnamony, with a beautifully dense and moist cake base. Quite simply awesome. I halved the recipe and used a cake mix clone Recipe #472383 #472383, it still baked for 40,minutes and came out perfectly."
"Great recipe! I ran short on applesauce, so substituted part of it with plain yogurt. Also forgot to add the icing at the end - no matter! I "liked" the cake when I first made it. The crunchy topping was nice. Mine didn't swirl real well, it was mostly on top of the cake but I hated to overswirl, so didn't. The next day, and even more the day after that, I fell in love with the cake! It got all gooey and moist - absolutely fantastic! I thought I would like it less as it sat, but I wound up liking it even more! The cake mix makes preparation a snap too. Thanks for this wonderful recipe!"
"I made this cake this afternoon as we love both cake and cinnamon rolls. It is delicious. I think it would make a wonderful coffee cake to take to an event and plan to do so in the future. I might even add some pecans because my cinnamon rolls always have them. Thanks for the recipe lilsweetie."
"Everyone loved this cake. It was easy to prepare and tasted wonderful. I warmed each piece up in the microwave for about 20 seconds before serving and it was nice and it made the icing nice and gooey.Thanks for sharing"
"5 stars! I made the icing with water (mis-read the recipe), otherwise made as written. I used one of the grocery stores own brand of butter cake mix (that cost 60 cents) and it worked a treat. I let the cake stand for about 15 minutes, stabbed about 20 holes all over it (using a chop stick) and added the icing on top. Thanks for posting - I am making this one again!"
"This recipe was exactly what I was looking for. Delicious and simple to make. I am taking one pan of it to work. I used the cake mix extender recipe and divided the batter and put into a 9x9 pan and a 8x12 pan. I think it is delicious. The cake is very tender. I loved how easy it was to make. I will be making this again! Thank you for posting this recipe."
