(LEX 18) — Cinnamon rolls aren’t just for breakfast anymore. This is a very simple dairy free recipe that everyone will enjoy. Perfect for a group potluck or even a midnight snack.

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes
Serving Size: about 16 pieces of cake


3 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 cup dairy free milk [oat milk works the best.]
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup dairy free butter softened

1 cup dairy free butter softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon cinnamon

2 cups powdered sugar
5 tablespoons dairy free milk
1 teaspoon vanilla



  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Spray a 9x13 glass baking pan with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl add flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, dairy free milk, eggs and vanilla. Mix until fully combined.
  • Melt butter and add to mix.
  • Use hand mixer to blend ingredients together. Batter should be thick and sticky.
  • Pour batter into baking pan.


  • In a separate large bowl, mix together softened butter, brown sugar, flour and cinnamon. This should be thinner than the batter.
  • Drop spoonfuls of the mix into the cake batter.
  • Use a knife or spoon to swirl the mixture through the cake. Don’t stir the topping in, just blend it to create a marble look.
  • Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes. Use a toothpick to check and see if the center is done.


  • While the cake is baking, pour all the icing ingredients into a medium size bowl.
  • Whisk ingredients together.
  • Once cake slightly cools, pour icing over it.
  • Icing will thicken as it cools on cake.
  • Enjoy!
