I'm making this for dessert tonight! Is the "v" a typo on the milk measurement? Just wondering. Thanks for the recipe!

Good recipe, but directions could be improved.

This turned out pretty good, and its not a difficult recipe, but a novice baker would have difficulty with the directions as written. Step 2 - after you pour in the butter do you then directly pour the batter in the pan without mixing or do you mix a little bit or a lot?  I mixed it just a little and poured in.  That seemed to work okay.Step 4 - A novice wouldn't necessarily know that the butter should be soft.  I am not a novice baker, and assumed the butter should be soft, but I don't think it was soft enough.  My topping came out very thick and when I tried to swirl it with a knife it didn't really want to swirl.  I ended up having to probably "swirl" it too much and a lot of my "topping" ended up on the bottom of the pan.  Should the butter have been melted like the butter in the previous step or just VERY soft almost melted?Except for those to issues, this was a good recipe.  I used it for a "Christmas in July" themed birthday party for my daughter's 30th birthday as a substitute for cinnamon rolls.  It was good, but I think would have been better if the topping had actually stayed on top.

Beyond Delicious!

I've made this cake twice so far. It was an absolute hit at my birthday party. To make it a chocolate swirl, use cocoa powder in place of cinnamon. Highly recommend for a special treat!

Pregnant and had a craving for some warm cake. This hit the spot! It's absolutely delicious and I had all of the ingredients in my pantry or fridge. No crazy shopping trips.

Delicious, Gooey and So Good

This was delicious.My son wanted cinnamon buns but it was late in the day and didn't feel like the extra work that cinnamon buns take. He said they were gooey and the cake is so good that you could skip the icing but it does add a nice touch. I substituted my gluten free flour mix for the regular flour and it turned out amazing.
