Is it a cinnamon roll? Is it a cake? This dessert is a cross between both and a win-win in our world. The cake is super tender, fluffy, and delicate. Adding buttermilk and butter makes a delectable crumb. The cinnamon mixture sinks during the baking process and the cake bakes around it. Thanks to evaporated milk, the glaze is super-rich. Perfect for brunch, breakfast, or dessert.
