Tasty Tuesdays: Easy Caramel Rolls

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!

  • Ingredients
  • 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!
