1 9x13-inch cake


Bottom Layer:

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 ½ cups milk

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 4 teaspoons baking powder

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ cup butter, melted

Top Layer:

  • 1 cup butter, softened

  • 1 cup brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon


  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar

  • 5 tablespoons milk

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan.

  2. Mix 3 cups flour, milk, white sugar, eggs, baking powder, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, and salt together in a large bowl until well-combined. Stir in 1/4 cup melted butter. Pour batter into the prepared baking pan.

  3. Beat 1 cup softened butter, brown sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, and cinnamon together in a large bowl until smooth. Drop by spoonfuls over the batter in the baking pan. Swirl the top layer into the bottom layer with a knife to create a marble effect.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out nearly clean, 25 to 30 minutes.

  5. Mix confectioners' sugar, milk, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract in a large bowl until smooth. Drizzle over warm cake.
