Cinnamon Roll Pound Cake. Listening To The Go-Betweens.

Cinnamon Roll Pound Cake

Meet my cinnamon friend.

Now meet my Cinnamon Roll Pound Cake friend.

This beautiful cake blends together the buttery goodness of pound cake with the rich taste of cinnamon rolls. There’s cinnamon sugar swirled throughout and a tangy cream cheese glaze to top it all off. It’s a wicked good way to start the day.

3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt

8. Pour 1/3 of cake batter into Bundt pan then drizzle some of the swirl mixture over batter. Use a knife to create a swirl pattern. Repeat twice with remaining cake batter and cinnamon swirl.

9. Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes, until a tester comes clean. Remove from oven and cool in Bundt pan for 10 minutes. Remove cake from pan and allow to cool.

10. Pour glaze over the pound cake and serve.
