Paleo Cinnamon Roll Cake

CAKE_CINNAMONROLL

Paleo Cinnamon rolls aren’t the easiest thing going …  if you’ve ever tried to make them.

{I’ve had a few fails myself!}

They’re dense.  Hard to roll.  Easy to fall apart.

I still make them though, because they TASTE great… and that’s what matters, right?  Not how things LOOK?

But then I saw this recipe for a regular version of cinnamon roll cake.  I though… hmmm…  I bet I could make that Paleo?

And I did!

It was way easier than paleo cinnamon rolls and family loved it.  I think you would even SKIP the glaze sauce…  and obviously this is a special treat, because it’s pretty sugar loaded.  BUT, considering what a regular cinnamon roll would be – this is a much better option.
