For the Cream Cheese Frosting:

  1. 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  2. 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  3. 2 cups powdered sugar

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9×13 inch baking pan.

Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla. Gradually add the flour mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with the flour mixture.
  3. Prepare the Cinnamon Swirl: In a small bowl, combine melted butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon.

  5. Bake the Cake: Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool completely in the pan.
  6. Make the Cream Cheese Frosting: Beat cream cheese and 1/4 cup butter together in a bowl until creamy. Gradually add powdered sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla, beating until the frosting is smooth and spreadable.
  7. Frost the Cake: Spread the cream cheese frosting over the cooled cake.
