Shortcut Low-FODMAP Cinnamon Roll Sheet Cake “Snack Cake”; Gluten-free

Print Friendly Version

I love cinnamon, I love cake, and I love shortcuts.

This is my new FAVORITE recipe!

Low-FODMAP Shortcut Cinnamon Roll Sheet Cake is delicious, moist and so simple.  It tastes just like a coffee cake, but uses my low-FODMAP Happy Baking Vanilla Cake Mix for an easy prep. The sour cream (lactose-free) gives the my low-FODMAP Vanilla Cake an added boost of rich flavor and soft texture.  Sooo good.

I’m a big fan of simplifying steps in my baking because I love to provide my family fresh treats, even on a busy weekend!

You will love this low-FODMAP Cinnamon Roll Sheet Cake with a cup of coffee in the morning, as a teatime snack in the late day, or dessert anytime.

Shortcut Low-FODMAP Cinnamon Roll Sheet Cake; Gluten-free

Although this recipe has not been tested, a single serving should be low-FODMAP based on the ingredients

Serves 24

Prep time: 10M plus cooling

Bake time: 45M-55 M

Total time: 55-65 M plus cooling

Bake: 350 F

Equipment: 9 by 13 inch casserole pan (I used a glass one)


  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup lactose-free sour cream
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
    • This makes quite a thick sugar layer, feel free to cut this back if you don’t like yours that sweet
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 2-3 cups confectioner’s sugar (depending on how much glaze you want)
    • For a lighter layer of glaze use 2 cups sugar
  • 3-5 tablespoons low-FODMAP milk (ex: almond milk or lactose-free milk)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or other flavored extract of your choice (lemon, almond)
  • Baking spray or vegetable shortening, for greasing


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Coat a 9×13 pan with baking spray and set aside for later
  • In the bowl of your stand mixer (I prefer the flat paddle) combine contents of the low-FODMAP Happy Baking Vanilla Cake Mix ‘sugar packet’ with the 4 eggs and blend on medium speed until light in color
  • Add the low-FODMAP Happy Baking Vanilla Cake Mix ‘cake mix packet’, canola oil and lactose-free sour cream
  • Mix on medium-low for 30 seconds and then raise the speed to medium until blended, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary
  • Spread the cake batter into your prepared pan
  • In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the brown sugar and cinnamon
  • Sprinkle sugar mixture evenly on top of your cake, then using a knife or chopstick, swirl the cinnamon sugar into the cake batter gently (do not over-stir)
    • Most of the sugar will stay on top of the cake
    • If you want to have the sugar in the center of the cake, then layer 1/2 the batter, then sprinkle the sugar and follow with the other 1/2 layer batter
  • Bake for 45-55 minutes or until a toothpick entered into the center of the cake comes out clean
    • As ovens vary, yours may need more/less time
  • Cool cake on wire rack for 10 minutes, and while cake is cooling whisk the confectioner’s sugar and low-FODMAP milk together to desired consistency to create a low-FODMAP glaze
  • Add vanilla or other desired extract and stir to combine
  • If your glaze is thick, warm for 20-30 second intervals in the microwave to thin the consistency
  • Drizzle glaze over slightly warm cake, then gently spread it with a knife over the sugar
  • Serve immediately, or warm prior to serving

So soft and SOOOO good!  Low-FODMAP Cinnamon Roll Snack Cake with my Happy Baking Vanilla Cake Mix.
