Cinnamon Bun Cake

I first saw this recipe on Pinterest and when I decided to do a post with it I found that it has been popular with many bloggers.  The reference I first went to referred me to another and they directed me to yet another.  I believe I finally tracked it down to  the original post made by  Picky Palate .  It looked soooo delicious that I had to try it and it really didn't disappoint!  Simple to make and very buttery.  Hope you like it too!
