Cinnamon Rolls

These are sooo good!  My son even asked me to make them instead of a Birthday cake.  You really have to go by touch when adding the flour, so pay attention.
They are worth the effort I promise you!

Cinnamon Rolls…So soft and warm and delicious!   I like to spread the frosting on while they are still warm (not hot) so it melts a little bit.  Only half my family likes raisins, so I make the pan half and half.  Two 9×13 pans fit in my oven quite nicely together so I often double the recipe.  If you want a smaller batch, just cut the recipe in half and bake in a round cake pan.  I have found some great metal (not disposable) pans at my dollar store.  I use them when I want to keep a pan and share one with a friend.  Since the pan only cost a dollar, I don’t worry about whether I get it back or not.

This is one of my go-to recipes whenever I have bananas that are at the overripe stage.   They are easy to make and freeze well after the icing has set.  I like to wrap them individually and then store them in a gallon size freezer bag.  When the kids pack their lunches, they just pull one out of the freezer.  They defrost by lunch time.  I love the glaze, so I usually double it when I make muffins.  You can double the recipe and bake it in a large jelly roll pan.  I have taken these lovely muffins to many gatherings and received rave reviews each time. I’ve even tried them with 1/2 wheat flour. Either way they are delicious! Continue reading »
