Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

I made this a few weekend ago when we had a friend coming through town. He had been out of the country for 10 days and this just felt like the perfect "welcome back to America" treat. You know, loaded up on cinnamon, sugar and cream cheese frosting, haha.  But for real, it was a great morning treat! This recipe is from Tastes Better From Scratch.

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup milk
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup butter (melted)

Cinnamon Mixture
1/2 cup butter (softened)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp flour
1 tbsp cinnamon

Cream Cheese Frosting
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tbsp butter (softened)
4 oz cream cheese
2 tbsp milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Heat oven to 350. Grease an 8x8 baking dish. In a large bowl whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir in the milk, egg and vanilla then add the melted butter. Pour the mixture into the baking dish. In a medium bowl cream together the butter, brown sugar, flour and cinnamon. Drop spoonfuls of the mixture over the top of the cake batter then swirl with a knife. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the cake is cooked through. Remove and let cool for 15 minutes before frosting.  In a bowl cream together the butter and cream cheese. Mix in the powdered sugar, vanilla and milk. Add more milk if you want to thin it out more. Spread the frosting out or pipe the frosting over the cake then cute and serve.
