Cinnamon Marble Cake

I was inspired to make this after seeing a cinnamon roll pancake. I was going to try try to make the swirls like a cinnamon roll, but I decided to make it like a marble cake. I also initially decide to leave the cake and not invert it. A while later I had change my mind and try to invert it out of the pan. The cake just fell apart as I inverted the pan.

For the sake of this recipe, we will leave it in the pan. 

This recipe will make make a 8 inch cake.

1 1/3 cups flour
2/3 cup sugar
2 t baking powder
2/3 cup milk
1/4 cup softened butter or margarine
1 egg
1 t vanilla

Combine the dry ingredients,  and the remaining ingredients. Beat with and electric mixer until blended then beat on medium speed for about a minute.

Take out 2 T of the batter and to it add:
1/4 cup soft butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 t cinnamon

Mix until well blended. This is the cinnamon filling
Grease and flour 8 inch round (or square) pan. Add the cake batter.  Dollop cinnamon filling on top of the cake. Use a knife to swirl the cinnamon filling through out the cake to make the marble effect. Bake in 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes or until done. Cake will pull away from the sides and a toothpick will come out clean.

For the glaze add:

1 cup powdered sugar
2 T milk
1/2 t vanilla

Combine all ingredients, mix until smooth.

You can add the glaze while the cake is still warm, I waited until it cooled a little.
