Instead of baking up individual cinnamon rolls for the whole gang, why not bake an entire Cinnamon Roll Cake? Our cinnamon roll cake recipe takes just 15 minutes and bakes up to be really pretty! Just cut a slice and you'll see!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (8-ounce) package refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons confectioner's sugar
  • 2 teaspoons milk

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 9-inch cake pan with cooking spray.
  2. Unroll the dough on a flat surface and pinch seams together. Spread butter evenly over dough. In a small bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon, then sprinkle over butter.
  3. Using a sharp knife, cut the dough lengthwise into six 2-inch wide strips. Roll up one strip and place in center of cake pan, end cut down. Place the remaining strips around the center roll, starting each strip at the end of the previous one. Bake 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool 5 minutes, then gently remove to a platter.
  4. In a small bowl, combine cream cheese, confectioner's sugar, and milk; mix until smooth. Spread icing over warm cinnamon roll cake and serve immediately.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I like the idea of turning crescent rolls into a coffee cake. Cinnamon rolls smell so delicious baking in the oven! My family will eat this as a breakfast and as a dessert. This is a simple recipe that makes a great brunch idea, served with fresh fruit, coffee, and milk.

This was easy but I personally did not like the strong taste of cream cheese. Would either cut back on cream cheese and increase conf. sugar OR use old fashioned vanilla icing.

Nice quick treat for when company drops by. Yum! Also a great project with little ones - easy and fun.

sounda very good

This was the perfect breakfast recipe to make when we had the whole family over! Huge hit!

Hello! We've added some step-by-step photos to the recipe. We hope this helps make it easier to understand!

Where would I go to find the step-by-step photos?

Hi there! The step-by-step photos are at the bottom of this recipe under Notes. Enjoy!

Use clean fishing line or unwaxed dental floss to cut rolls after rolling up.

A little confusing, do the remaining strips wrap around the center one? Would love to see a video of making this.

Instead of cutting the dough lengthwise into six 2-inch wide strips and rolling them up, I think it would be easier to roll up the entire sheet and then cut of 2-inch wide pieces.
