Cinnabon Coffee Cake

This recipe is great for when you want cinnamon rolls but don't have the time. Or for when you have way too many cubes of  butter in your fridge.  Either way, it is super good.

This recipe was floating around facebook for a while, but I'm not sure of the origins beyond that.

3 c flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 c sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 c milk
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
4 Tbsp butter, melted
2 stick (1 cup) butter, softened
1 c brown sugar
2 Tbsp flour
1 Tbsp cinnamon
2/3 c nuts
2 c powdered sugar
5 Tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla

1. With an electric mixer or stand-up mixer, mix 3 cups of flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, milk, eggs, and vanilla. Once combined well, slowly stir in 4 T melted butter. Pour batter into a greased 9x13 baking pan.

2. In a large bowl, mix the 2 sticks of softened butter, brown sugar, 2 T flour, cinnamon, and nuts until well combined. Drop evenly over cake batter by the tablespoon and use a knife to marble/swirl through the cake.

3. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick comes out nearly clean from center. Place powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla in a large bowl. Whisk until smooth. Drizzle over warm cake. Serve warm or at room temperature.
