I love a good shortcut now and then. Caramel rolls are one of my very favorite things, but they aren’t exactly a quick and easy fix. It takes some pre-planning. Some mixing. Some rising. Some rolling. Some cutting. Some more rising. Baking. Totally worth the time and energy you put into them, but when I needed a presentable dessert last weekend for Sunday dinner that could be done in two hours or less, that wasn’t it.
This caramel roll cinnamon cake, on the other hand, was JUST what we needed. It was totally simple to whip up. It was done completely in about an hour and a half.
This cake is all homemade, and is super moist and tender.
