  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon


  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 5 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


Step 1: Preparing the Base

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×13 inch baking pan.
In a large bowl, mix together 3 cups of flour, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 1 cup of sugar, and 4 teaspoons of baking powder.
In another bowl, whisk together 1 1/2 cups of milk, 2 eggs, and 2 teaspoons of vanilla.
Slowly mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.
Once combined, slowly stir in 1/2 cup of melted butter.
Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan.

Step 2: Making the Topping
In a medium bowl, mix 1 cup of softened butter, 1 cup of brown sugar, 2 tablespoons of flour, and 1 tablespoon of cinnamon until well combined.
Drop the topping by spoonfuls evenly over the cake batter and use a knife to marble/swirl through the cake.

Step 3: Baking the Cake
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

Step 4: Preparing the Glaze
While the cake is baking, make the glaze. In a bowl, mix 2 cups of powdered sugar, 5 tablespoons of milk, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla until smooth.

Step 5: Finishing the Cake
Once the cake is finished baking, remove it from the oven and while still warm, drizzle the glaze over the cake.

  2. Swirling the Topping: Don’t overmix when swirling the topping; just enough to create a marbled effect.
  3. Checking for Doneness: The cake is done when it’s golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
