Cinnamon Swirl Bake

I found this recipe in a magazine and just had to try it.

1-Dish Cinnamon Swirl Bake
  • Mazola PureTM Cooking Spray
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 envelopes Fleischmann's® RapidRise Yeast
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup milk (very warm 120-130°F)
  • 2 tablespoons butter OR margarine, melted
  • 2 tablespoons corn oil
  • 1 egg
Cinnamon Mixture
  • 3 tablespoons butter OR margarine, softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter OR margarine, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
MIX batter ingredients together in a pre-sprayed 8x8-inch baking dish. Let rest for 10 minutes. Combine cinnamon mixture in a small bowl by mixing with fork.
TOP batter evenly with cinnamon mixture. Using fingers, poke topping thoroughly into batter.
BAKE by placing in a COLD oven; set temperature to 350°F. Bake 25-30 minutes, until lightly browned and firm in center. Cool 10 minutes. Combine icing ingredients and drizzle over warm cake.
Recipe Note: If desired, batter may be mixed in a separate bowl. Proceed as directed above.

I don't have any Rapid Rise yeast, so I just used regular yeast and only 1 package or 2-1/4 tsp. I let it rest for an hour, instead of the 10 minutes, then spread the brown sugar cinnamon mixture on top and poked it in. Then I covered it with plastic wrap and put it into the refrigerator. The next morning I pulled it out, let it sit for about half an hour to come to room temperature, and then baked as directed. I baked it for about 5 extra minutes.

The icing was really good, but I made it a bit thick so ended up spreading it on instead of drizzling.  I think there was enough icing for a double batch, so next time I'm either making less icing or making more cake!  I really liked the flavor, though, and I'm thinking of using this icing recipe for my cinnamon rolls next time.  The butter just added something. 

Also, next time I will follow the Recipe Note and mix it in a separate bowl.  I can't figure out the reason for spraying the pan and then mixing the dough in it.  I will definitely be making this again - it was so good!
