Sometimes, life couldn't be sweeter!! Our vacation started with some very good news - I got a big promotion at work. That news was followed by a caramel roll from Tally's Silver Spoon in Rapid City and the world's best prenatal massage. Seriously - how sweet it is!
I find that in the South it is easy to come by sticky buns or cinnamon rolls, but it is not as easy to find a caramel roll. The one we sampled at Tally's was absolutely delightful. It was sweet and buttery and crispy on the outside but soft and doughy on the inside. My sister-in-law made some caramel rolls yesterday for breakfast, and they were just as good as Tally's. She had a very handy method for making them using frozen bread loaves. I thought I'd share this delicious and easy to prep recipe!
- 1-1/2 cups light brown sugar, packed
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
- 1/2 cup whipping cream
- 1 loaf frozen bread dough, thawed
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
Combine the brown sugar, melted butter and cream in the baking dish and spread evenly in the bottom of the pan.
Roll the bread dough into a 12x16 inch rectangle.
In a small bowl or plastic bag, combine the sugar a cinnamon and sprinkle over the top of the rolled out dough.
Roll into a long jelly roll and cut into 6 rolls (12 if you want smaller servings).
Place the rolls over the brown sugar mixture.
Cover loosely with a kitchen towel and set in a warm place to double in size, about 30 to 40 minutes.
When ready, bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for about 45 minutes or until brown on top. Invert onto a platter and serve.
I hope it adds a little something sweet to your day!
