I love quick and easy ways to make dessert for my family to enjoy. One of the best ways to do this is to take a pre-made product and add a little twist to it to make it special, like I did for this Cranberry Cinnamon Roll Cake.

This recipe uses Immaculate Organic Cinnamon Rolls combined with a few simple ingredients to make a delicious holiday cake!

Immaculate Cranberry Cinnamon Roll Cake ingredients

To make this cake I melted butter and sugar in a saucepan and added cranberries to make a caramelized topping for the cake.

Cranberry Topping for Cranberry Cinnamon Roll Cake

The topping is almost like cranberry sauce, and is a delicious combination of sweet and tart.

The cake is an upside down cake, so the topping goes in the cake pan, and then the cinnamon rolls go on top.

I cut the cinnamon rolls up into small pieces and spread them out so they cover the topping.

Cranberry Cinnamon Roll Cake before baking

After baking I flip the cake upside down on a plate, which allows the cranberry topping to soak into the cake and run down in between the cinnamon roll pieces.

The cake was delicious! The Immaculate Organic Cinnamon Rolls come with vanilla icing, but I didn’t think the cake needed any extra sugar, so I saved it to use later.
