Tender and moist, Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Cake is simply divine! It’s incredibly simple to prepare and requires no waiting for the yeast to activate and dough to rise. You’ll be enjoying this dessert in less than an hour!
I swirled the most perfect cinnamon roll filling in this pumpkin sheet cake then topped it with a sweet, thick glaze. It has all the yummy flavors of a homemade pumpkin spiced cinnamon roll in a simple cake.
Raise your hand if you like pumpkin! Cinnamon? All the warm fall flavors?
I modeled this recipe after one of my all-time favorite, drool-worthy dessert recipes, the Honey Bun Cake. I wanted a fall-ish flavor though and decided pumpkin would be perfect. It was.
This is a dessert every pumpkin lover should try!
I popped this Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Cake in the oven to bake as I prepared a sandwich. Both items were for tailgating. I needed everything to be quick and easy
since I procrastinated making them the day before.
Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Cake
The beauty of this cake is that it starts with a cake mix. It’s a fun alternative to traditional cinnamon rolls. Furthermore, I know some people don’t like to use cake mixes. However, I find in some situations, like this, it’s perfectly acceptable. No judgment from me. I just like when people cook regardless.
I wish I had added pecans between the pumpkin layer and the cinnamon layer, but that just gives me an excuse to make it again.
Honestly, everything you love about cinnamon rolls is in the cake. All the good – the gooey cinnamon, the luscious icing and none of the bad the waiting and the more waiting.
