Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Cake

Cake for breakfast is our favorite! We mixed pumpkin into the batter, swirled in some brown sugar and cinnamon, and created a delicious cross between a cake and a cinnamon roll.

For the cake:

  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 2/3 cups sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 15 ounces pumpkin
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt

For the topping:

For the glaze:

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons milk more as needed


For the cake:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with non-stick spray.
  • Add the eggs, sugar, oil, and vanilla to a large mixing bowl and beat together on medium speed until smooth and creamy. Stir in the pumpkin.
  • Add the flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda, and salt to the bowl and beat together until well combined.
  • Pour batter into prepared baking dish.

For the topping:

  • Whisk together the ingredients for the topping and sprinkle over the top of the cake batter. Use a butter knife to swirl the cinnamon sugar mixture through the cake batter.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a tester comes out clean. Let cool 20 minutes.

To glaze:

  • Whisk together the powdered sugar and milk to make the glaze. Add additional milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, to reach the consistency you prefer. Pour the glaze over the warm cake.
  • Let glaze set before slicing and serving.



Be sure to use 100% pure pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filling in this recipe.
The cake should be just slightly warm when glazing. Let the glaze firm up before slicing and serving.
