Cinnamon Roll Skillet Cake

by 247tasty

It’s always messy and time-consuming to bake from scratch, that is why most of the time we resort to using cake mix, biscuit, or crescent rolls (even Pillsbury). Well, not for this recipe. It is pretty easy to make and will only take you about 30 minutes to bake. We just need some basic ingredients to make this gluten-free, melt in your mouth breakfast/dessert cake.

I think it’s about time to do some baking with real ingredients (that I’m sure you already have on hand) without compromising the taste!
