1can8 count cinnamon rolls with icing (Pillsbury, not Grands!)
1/2cupmilkregular or nonfat is fine
1 1/2cupsall purpose flour + 2 tablespoonsdivided
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 10-inch pie plate with cooking spray.
Stir together sugar, oil, egg and milk in a large bowl. Add baking powder, salt, and 1 1/2 cups flour, and stir until no lumps remain. Set aside.
Open can of cinnamon rolls and separate. One at a time, press the cinnamon roll between the palms of your hands to flatten. Press each into the bottom and up the sides of the pie plate to form the crust, pinching to seal any gaps between the rolls.
Pour the coffee cake mixture over the cinnamon roll crust.
In a small bowl, add the brown sugar, cinnamon, and 2 tablspoons of flour to the melted butter. Stir and sprinkle over the top of the coffee cake.
Bake for about 25-30 minutes, until a toothpick comes out just shy of clean. While warm, top with icing that came with the cinnamon rolls.
You can also make this in a 9x13-inch pan. Spray it with cooking spray and just put the flattened cinnamon rolls on the bottom of the pan (not up the sides). Bake time will be about 20-30 minutes.
