Happy Easter !!  This morning we went to the early service at church then I came home and made this wonderful cake.  I was told by my friend Cyndi B that this cake was really good.  This recipe comes from The Girl Who Ate Everything. 

The texture of this cake actually seems like a cinnamon roll texture to me.  If you love cinnamon rolls you will love this cake.  It was super easy to make and oh so yummy warm with the icing still gooey and the smell is awesome baking in your oven!
