This Cinnamon Roll Cake has quickly become a favorite in my house!

It has the most delicious cinnamon and sugar flavor throughout the entire cake and is topped with a sweet icing.

When I first saw cinnamon roll cake on Pinterest I thought it was an amazing idea! Who doesn’t love cinnamon rolls?

The idea of being able to turn them into a cake that takes about 10 minutes to prep sounded awesome!

The only issue was I needed to make a gluten free, vegan, and refined sugar free version of it.

I already had an awesome recipe for gluten free and vegan vanilla cake so I knew that would work great.

Then for the cinnamon sugar swirl instead of brown sugar I was able to use coconut sugar and instead of butter I used Earth Balance Vegan Buttery Sticks.

The substitutes worked perfectly! This is one of my favorite cakes that I’ve made to date and my family agrees.

So let’s talk about how you make it!

HOW TO MAKE VEGAN AND GLUTEN FREE CINNAMON ROLL CAKE:

  1. Preheat oven: 350°F. Grease a round 8-inch cake pan.
  2. Mix together dry ingredients: In a large bowl, whisk together all-purpose flour, oat flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, coconut sugar, and xanthan gum (if your flour doesn’t contain it).
  3. Mix in wet ingredients: Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl and stir until combined. Pour batter into the prepared cake pan.
  4. Combine filling ingredients: Add all of the filling ingredients to a small bowl and stir to combine.
  5. Swirl filling into cake: Spoon the filling mixture over the cake and use a butter knife to swirl the filling throughout the cake. 
  6. Bake: 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  7. Cool: Allow the cake to cool for 10-15 minutes before transferring the cake to a cooling rack.
  8. Mix together icing ingredients: Add the icing ingredients to a small bowl and stir to combine.
  9. Top with icing: Once the cake has cooled completely pour the icing over the cake and serve.
