Shortcut Cinnamon Roll Cake

If you love cinnamon rolls you're going to love this giant shortcut cinnamon roll cake, made using Rhodes frozen dough.  
Hi everyone! Today I'm back sharing another tasty recipe using my favorite frozen bread dough. We love cinnamon rolls at our house, but I don't always have the time to make them from scratch. That's where this shortcut recipe comes into play.

The secret behind this recipe is using Rhodes frozen dough as the base for your cinnamon roll dough and adding the remainder of the ingredients from scratch.  Rhodes frozen 
dough is perfect for baking because it tastes just as good and bakes up soft and fluffy like homemade bread dough.  

We've all heard the saying that "everything is bigger in Texas" and that holds true for today's recipe for this giant Cinnamon Roll Cake. This cinnamon roll cake is filled with soft, gooey cinnamon layers, a lightly browned crust, and topped with a simple vanilla glaze. If you love cinnamon rolls, then you're going to love this giant cinnamon roll. 

I baked this recipe in my 11 inch cast iron skillet, but you can also use a large pie plate. This cinnamon roll cake looks so pretty when plated because you can see all the ooey-gooey layers once it's cut. This recipe is a must bake if you have a cinnamon roll lover in your house.

This seriously looks incredible. We have donuts every Sunday morning as part of our family tradition, but this recipe would be a great way to mix it up. It's still a sweet dessert, but something different.

These look amazing .. it's been forever since I've had a cinnamon roll! When my kids were little I made them nearly every weekend for breakfast .. and used the Pampered Chef recipe. I love the idea of turning it into a dessert in cake form. Genius! Thank-you (as always) for another great recipe
