Cinnamon Roll Blondies- Big Green House

Ingredients Needed:

  • Vanilla cake mix
  • Oil
  • Egg
  • Brown sugar
  • Butter
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Cream cheese
  • Shortening
  • Powdered sugar
  • Vanilla

Cake Mix: Vanilla, yellow, white or any similar variety will work for these. Stick with a standard size box ( 15-18 oz) and you will be good to go.

Oil: A neutral tasting oil (canola/vegetable/sunflower) work best for these blondies

Shortening: I like to use Crisco butter flavored baking sticks in my frosting. Regular shortening will also work.

Brown Sugar: Coconut palm sugar can be used as a replacement.

A few recipe notes:

  • Your batter will be thick! So, don’t worry if it seems, well, thick.
  • If desired, you can top your blondies with chopped walnuts before serving..they go perfect together!
  • Keep any leftover blondies or frosting in a covered container in the refrigerator.
