So the family is in town and you’re essentially running a bed and breakfast out of your own home…why harp over complicated recipes, when you can wow your guests with “short cut” concoctions at mealtime. After all, it is the thought that counts, right?! Short cut cinnamon buns are finger-licking good, and ever so satisfying for breakfast. The best part about ’em is that the recipe only calls for five ingredients – most of which you probably already have in your pantry, and you prep them overnight. Here is what you’ll officially need to whip up a batch:
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup instant vanilla pudding mix
- 1/3 cup melted butter
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 20 Rhodes frozen rolls dough balls
I could not find the proper dinner rolls, so I used frozen loaves of bread dough, instead. After properly thawing the bread item, grease a bundt pan, and toss in rolls or cut up pieces (I used about 15). Next, sprinkle with dry ingredients in the following order: brown sugar, vanilla pudding mix, cinnamon. After that, top with melted butter. Cover lightly with a damp kitchen towel and leave to rise overnight on the kitchen counter. Bake at 350 degrees fahrenheit for 25 minutes. Carefully dump buns onto a serving dish and enjoy!
I hope this recipe sweetens your holiday!
