Pinterest Elizabeth I Ramblings & Lifestyle: September 2015

Tuesday, 29 September 2015


          Music has such a special place in my heart. Listening to music makes me feel better than when nothing else could. When I am gloomy or distressed, I love to take the weight off of my feet and park myself in my closet and listen to my favorite artists. The sound that encompasses the small space of my closet gives me such comfort and gives me a positive mind. I can tune everyone out and get lost in music for hours. The instruments and voices mesmerize me. When my favorite playlist is playing, I cannot pull myself away; I have lost all need to do anything else while it is on. Life, for me, is so much more enjoyable with music and sounds to fill my heart when I cannot do so myself.

Cinnamon Roll Pound Cake w/ Cinnamon Glaze

Hey babes!
As promised, this will be a recipe post. It is a solid bit into September and with it comes fall desserts! So, I didn't want to throw pumpkin or apples immediately at you. Instead, I am sharing a different version of a classic favorite. Cinnamon Rolls. However, it is in cake form. Yup! Since it is still much too hot to labor in the kitchen over yeast, this cake is great! It takes but a few minutes and you can pop it into the oven and have a cake that tastes just like in cinnamon roll in no time!

I found this recipe over on Pinterest... Of course. I had been wanting to try out a pound cake recipe. The original recipe is from one of my absolute favorite food websites, LeCremeDeLaCrumb. She made hers with a frosting. I made a glaze. However, both taste delicious. It really depends on your preferred sugar and sweetness. I had an amazing time making it and has since made a few times. This Cinnamon Roll Pound Cake is a great coffee cake or companion with tea or coffee. It is also a smashing hit at brunch gatherings. I hope you enjoy!
