Cinnamon Roll Brownies

By Oh, Bite It

Just try to imagine a big, warm, super-moist and dense brownie filled with tunnels of thick, drippy and cinnamony sweetness, studded with crunchy pecans and then topped with a thick cream cheese spiral of frosting.

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup chopped pecan
  • 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  1. First prepare the swirl, and set aside! In a medium bowl combine all of the swirl ingredients until it's thick and blended.

  • 1 box of white cake mix, or any flavor you'd like
  • ⅔ cup cream
  • ½ cup melted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  1. Mix together the cake batter with the cream, butter and vanilla, and pour it 3/4 of the way into the cake pan. You might have some batter left over... make some mini brownie bites, or something!
  2. Add dollops of the swirl into the cake batter, and use a knife or chopsticks to swirl it around in pretty cinnamon roll-ish designs.
  3. Place the pan onto a sheet pan to protect your oven in the event of a slight spill- over.
  4. Into the oven at 350 for approx. 35-40 minutes, or until it's cooked through. Let it cool completely before flipping it out of the pan.
  5. Flip that baby out.
