Cinnamon Roll Brownies

We needed a quick dessert for this past Sunday's Packer game.  I found this recipe and thought we would try it.  We ALL loved it and think it is better than a Cinnabon Cinnamon Roll!

Cinnamon Roll Brownies


1 box of white cake mix…or any flavor you’d like(We used a yellow mix)
2/3 cup cream
1/2 cup melted butter
1 tsp. vanilla

The Swirl:

1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 tbsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tbsp. or so of water just for consistency


Cream Cheese Frosting to top the Brownies

First prepare the swirl, and set aside.  In a medium bowl combine all of the swirl ingredients until it’s thick and blended.

Prepare a 9″ round cake pan with cooking spray for that Cinnamon Roll look,or any cake pan will work, too.

Mix together the cake batter with the cream, butter and vanilla, and pour it 3/4 of the way into the cake pan.

Add dollops of the swirl into the cake batter and use a knife to swirl it around in pretty Cinnamon Roll-ish designs.(We saved about 1/2 cup to put on top after it came out of the oven)

Place the pan onto a Sheet pan to protect your oven in the event of a slight spill- over. Put in the oven at 350 for approx. 35-40 minutes, or until it’s cooked through.

Let it cool completely before flipping it out of the pan. Flip out onto a plate. We topped with the SWIRL mix that was left over and then  with the cream cheese frosting in a swirl like pattern.

Cut it up into brownie sized pieces.
