Weekend Recap & Pinterlicious Mondays

Hello Lovelies!!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!! This weekend was a little different for me. The hubby went on a biking trip with some friends including my cousins hubby and both of us stayed and had a sleep over at her moms house like we used to when we were younger! It was actually lots of fun, but I missed the hubby!



On Saturday I went to church in the morning and in the afternoon I had lunch at my aunts house. Outside it was pouring rain all afternoon so we decided to look at old pictures together. 



On Sunday it didnt rain hard but it drizzled all day. In the afternoon we went to the mall with my aunt, my cousin and her brothers wife Deise who has 4 adorable kids!


Well that was my weekend. 

Lets get to... Pinterlicious Mondays 


This week I made a Cinnabon Cake. It was one of the first things I pinned on my Food board. 
The cake was no disappointment. It tasted delicious, and just like a cinnabon! 


Ingredients:
Cake:
3 cups of flour
1/4 tsp of salt 
1 cup of sugar
4 tsp of baking powder
1 1/2 cup of milk 
2 eggs
2 tsp of vanilla extract 
1 stick butter, melted 

Topping:
2 sticks butter, softened 
1 cup of brown sugar
2 tbs of flour
1 tbs of cinnamon 

Glaze:
2 cups of powdered sugar
5 tbs of milk
1 tsp of vanilla 

Directions: 


  
Add your two eggs in a bowl 

Add the milk

Mix eggs and milk together

Now add the vanilla

add the sugar

Now mix the flour and the baking powder 

The batter will be a little thick but thats okay

melt the stick of butter

Mix it in with the batter. 


Put your cake aside and now lets make the topping 

Time to soften the butter

At first I tried doing that with a mix but then I decided to just use my hands. 


Add the brown sugar
 {Excuse my mess but I dont know how to keep a clean kitchen while cooking}

Add the flour

Add the cinnamon

And voila!!

Drop the topping evenly on top of the cake 

Take a knife and swirl it, mixing it with the batter

Turn your oven to 350f  
Leave your cake in for 25-35 mins 


While the cake is in the oven... Lets make the glaze

In a bowl add the sugar

Milk and vanilla 


Once the cake comes out of the oven it will look deliciously golden!

While the cake is still warm, drizzle the glaze over it



Dessert is on the plate!!
