One of my favorite breakfast items is homemade cinnamon roll, but sometimes you don't have the time to proof the dough and so on for the time consuming task of making them. This cinnamon pecan pound cake has the taste of a fresh cinnamon roll within half the time.It is also has light and airy texture like pound cake is known for.
Start off by preheating the oven to 325 degrees. Spray the baking pan with non stick spray.
The first thing you need to do is let 3 sticks of butter come to room temperature . Add the butter to the bowl of a mixer with a whisk attachment. beat the butter for a minute at high speed.
Slowly start adding the sugar slowly stopping to scrap sides when you are about half way through. Cream the butter and sugar for about 5 minutes until the mixture is a light yellow and fluffy appearance.
Start adding the eggs one at a time, combining well before adding the next. Scrap the sides and bottom as needed.
Sift the four, Baking Soda and Salt together. making sure the mixture is fine with not clumps.
With the mixer on low setting, start adding the flour mixture to the wet mixture adding in 2-3 batches. Scrap the sides and mix until just combined.
Add the Apple Sauce, Vanilla Extract and Oil. Mix until combined, be careful not to over mix!!
Add the ingredients for the cinnamon swirl in a small bowl. mix until well combined.
Pour a of the mixture in the prepared baking pan, drizzle 1/2 of the cinnamon mixture ontop of the batter. Using a skewer, swirl the mixture into the batter. Repeat until all of the batter and cinnamon mixture is used. Bake for 1 hour and half until a knife or skewer comes out clean. Let the rest for 10-15mins before flipping it out of the pan. Drizzle the frosting over the cake once cooled for awhile.
