Blackberry Cinnamon Roll Cake combines the flavor and texture of cinnamon rolls with the ease of a simple cake. It is impressive, delicious, and so easy!
I think I have discovered the most perfect breakfast recipe ever.
Imagine this scenario – you have last minute guests for breakfast / brunch. You want to impress them with something homemade. You need to show off your baking skills and you want them to think you’ve been slaving away all morning. It needs to taste amazing, of course, but oh – you really don’t have time to make anything complicated. Well guess what – I have that recipe for you! This blackberry cinnamon roll cake is everything I mentioned above! It is delicious, impressive, but most importantly EASY!
I wish I could take credit for coming up with this recipe, but I can’t! I was inspired by my friend Allie’s Raspberry Lemon Sweet Roll Cake. How good does this look?? And then I saw the inspiration for HER recipe, Naomi from Bakers Royale, and I immediately fell in love.
I am obsessed with berries. I eat them daily and love cooking with them. And cinnamon rolls?? Well you know how I feel about them! But unfortunately I don’t have the time to make these amazing fluffy beauties very often. But honestly – I don’t know if I need to make them ever again now that I discovered this cake. It is seriously just as good as a fresh homemade cinnamon roll. I can’t wait to start playing around with different varieties, my mind is already spinning!
If you skip right to the recipe, you will see there is yeast in here. But do not be alarmed! I did not lie – this cake really is easy, yeast and all!! See the yeast in here does not need to be kneaded, which is the “hard” part about working with yeast, and it only needs to sit for 15 minutes before going in the oven. So no 2 hour rises! You do need to get your milk to the correct temperature, but that’s not very hard thanks to the microwave!
This cake is moist and flavorful. It is full of plump blackberries that taste amazing and give it the prettiest color. Plus there is a generous helping of brown sugar / cinnamon / butter mixture running throughout, so clearly you know it is going to be good!
Whip up this cake this weekend, you will not regret it! TheBetterHalf said this is one of the best things I have ever made. Now THAT is a complement 🙂
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
