Cinnamon Bun Cake

Well it's another rainy day here in Northern New Jersey.  It's all good, I have things to do inside the house today, and when I'm outside gardening, I feel my house suffers!  I found this really delicious cake on Pinterest the other day, yes.... I love searching for new recipes and ideas on there, if you want you can follow me at LizSomma.  
So I came across this Cinnamon Bun Cake, it looked really delicious, and easy. I made it last week for coffee at my friends house, and everyone LOVED it. It calls for a 9x13 pan, but I made it in 2 small square pans, one for my friends house, and of course one for home, and my family LOVED it as well.   Here's the recipe.
Cinnamon Bun Cake
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 ( 1 stick) Butter, melted

1 cup ( 2 sticks) Butter, softened
1 cup Brown Sugar
2 Tablespoons Flour
1 Tablespoon Cinnamon

2 cups Powdered Sugar
5 Tablespoons Milk
1 teaspoon Vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×13 glass baking pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
In an electric or stand mixer add the flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, milk, eggs, and vanilla. Once combined well , slowly stir in the melted butter. Pour into the prepared 9×13 baking pan.
For topping, In a large bowl mix the 2 sticks of butter, brown sugar, flour and cinnamon together until well combined and creamy. Drop evenly over the batter by the tablespoonfuls and use a knife to marble/swirl through the cake.
Swirling the batter!
Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes or when a toothpick inserted near the center comes out nearly clean.
FOR GLAZE: In a medium bowl, mix the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla together with a whisk. Drizzle evenly over the warm cake. Serve warm or at room temperature. Enjoy!

This is baking in the oven right now. I made it first in January (from Pinterest, too) and when I was making it tonight I realized that I left off the topping. Now I am very excited to taste. It was already incredible!
