Cinnamon Rolls are always a good idea, but they are time consuming and when I want a cinnamon roll, I want it right now {and I don’t want to knead and roll and rise and do all the things}! This Cinnamon Roll Cake is super easy to make, naturally grain and gluten free, and you can have it ready to eat in under 30 minutes! I suggested pairing it with Loaded Egg Casserole and a Mimosa for the perfect weekend brunch! If you’re needing some more veggies in your life, I love to saut√© up a breakfast scramble with sweet potatoes, Brussels and chicken sausage. Served with a side of cinnamon rolls, it’s the perfect balance of sweet & savory!

This is also an easy recipe to double and share with a bigger crowd! Adults and kids will both love it, I promise!
