Cinnamon Roll Cake

We tried this last night and it turned out fabulous.  It was less cake-like and more roll-like.  But with the ease of a cake and not waiting for dough to rise, etc. etc.  My daughter and I put this together, and it has been very much enjoyed!  I'll for sure make this again.  I'm thinking, it would be really good in the Dutch Oven too while camping!

ingredients
cake:
3 cups flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup sugar
4 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 cup milk
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted

struesel:
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp. flour
1 Tbsp. cinnamon

glaze:
2 cups powdered sugar
5 Tbsp. milk
1 tsp. vanilla

directions
1.  Preheat oven to 350 and spray a 9x13" glass baking pan with non-stick spray. 

2.  For cake:  In a mixer, add all the "cake" ingredients (except butter): flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, milk, eggs, and vanilla.  Once combined well, slowly stir in the melted butter.  Pour into the baking pan.

3.  For struesel:  In a medium-large bowl, mix together the butter, brown sugar, flour and sugar together until creamy.  Make large drops of the struesel onto the cake batter.  Take a knife and swirl it through until it is marble-like. 

4.  Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes until a toothpick comes out NEARLY clean.

5.  For glaze:  In a medium bowl, mix together powdered sugar, milk and vanilla with a whisk.  Drizzle over warm cake. 

Serve warm or at room temperature.
