|It tastes as good as it looks!!|
Brunch Day at OFFI work at the Osteopathic Founders Foundation as an Emergency Cardiovascular Care instructor. I also get to help with other projects that involve the Foundation. (OFF as we lovingly call it.) Thursday is the "Retired Doctors" Brunch. This group of physicians have been meeting for breakfast for years.
Now they come the third Thursday of each month to our facility to enjoy each others company over breakfast. They are so cute to watch! Tomorrow I will be making my Baked Eggs and Cinnabon Cinnamon Roll cake for them to enjoy. These men and women dedicated their entire lives to medicine and their patients. It is so heartwarming to hear their "stories" and watch their eyes sparkle when they talk about their years at the hospital. They are remarkable people and just being around them is a joy. I always look forward to "Old Docs Day" as we fondly call it!!
Cinnabon Cinnamon Roll CakeCinnabon Cinnamon Roll Cake
3 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cup milk
2 tsp vanilla
4 T butter, melted
2 sticks (1 cup) butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
2 T flour
1 T cinnamon
2/3 cups nuts (optional)
2 cups powdered sugar
5 T milk
1 tsp vanilla
With an electric mixer or stand-up mixer, mix flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, milk, eggs, and vanilla. Once combined well, slowly stir in 4 T melted butter. Pour batter into a greased 9x13" baking pan.
In a large bowl, mix the 2 sticks of softened butter, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and nuts until well combined. Drop evenly over cake batter by the tablespoon and use a knife to marble/swirl through the cake. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick comes out nearly clean from center. Place powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla in a large bowl. Whisk until smooth. Drizzle over warm cake. Serve warm (we like it straight out of the oven) or at room temperature. (www.sixsistersstuff.com)
