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!
