This healthier dessert is just like a cinnamon roll but in cake form! It's much easier to make than a cinnamon roll and takes less that 20 minutes to prepare. It's very moist and sweet, but with less added sugar than a traditional cake.
Fill the prepared pan with batter and filling, alternating in 7 layers starting and finishing with the batter (4 layers of batter, 3 layers of filling). Bake for 55-65 minutes until it springs back when lightly pressed and a toothpick comes out clean. Let it cool in the oven and don't slice until cooled. Enjoy!
DATE SYRUP: while you could use a different liquid sweetener, I HIGHLY recommend date syrup for it's caramel-like flavor and NO added sugar!

The texture does not change with or without it.SUGAR: I used unrefined cane sugar, but pretty much any 1:1 granulated sugar will work! The only other one I have experience with is coconut sugar; in which case you will need to add 1-2 tablespoons to get the same amount of sweetness.AVOCADO OIL: avocado oil is my favorite because of it's unsaturated fats and omega-3s, but any neutral oil will work! I have tried reducing 3 tbsp of oil with more milk, which worked, but wasn't as good. Choose which you'd rather have; less oil or a more moist cake (I'll keep making it with ½ cup)!
