Caramel Rolls


I love working with yeast dough. When ever I make sticky buns or cinnamon rolls, I like to use the Potato Bread recipe that I make potato bread with. It's a sweet dough that makes soft, delicious rolls of any kind...not to mention fabulous potato bread!. This time, I made Caramel Rolls. I've never tried them before, but you can bet your buns I'll be making them again! I made the dough up from the recipe here. I have no clue where I got this recipe, but it's the best potato bread I've ever made. These caramel rolls are a combination of recipes, the potato bread recipe, Carol's recipe for the cinnamon filling that gets spread on the dough from her Big Delicious Cinnamon Rolls and the caramel goo comes from a recipe on Mixing Bowl for Sinful Cinnamon Rolls.
After the potato bread dough rose the first time, I rolled it out and spread the cinnamon filling on it.


I love this filling..I use it for every sweet roll recipe I make. I didn't measure how long or wide the dough was when I rolled it out...I just rolled it till it looked good.


I rolled the dough up from the long side jelly roll style.


Cut the roll into slices that were about 1 1/2 inches thick.


Put the slices in the caramel mixture and let them rise again.


They baked up beautifully! This picture is before I flipped them out of the pan. Flip them out as soon as they come from the oven.


Mmmmmmm!!! Caramel Rolls!

Caramel rolls!! Yum! DH just loves any kind of cinnamon roll type dessert, so I'll definately have to try that one. The strawberry summer salad would have been a perfect appetizer to my strawberry mousse dessert :-) I never would have thought to put strawberries in a salad! Great, great recipes you guys!

Melissa said...

Oh my goodness, Bunny! Congratulations! Those caramel rolls looks killer!

Juliana said...

Oh! Everything looks so yummie, the chicken looks so fruity and yet spicy...nice combination of flavors. The rolls look so soft and moist and the pistachio ice cream is one of my favorite flavor of ice cream :-)
Your Little Prince is sure adorable, what a blessing ;-

As usual everything looks amazing but I have to say I'm really looking forward to that chicken recipe, Carol. I've made several of your previous ones and loved them. This one looks even yummier than those were.

Congratulations! Ryder is beautiful! Well, tonight we dined on the Caribbean chicken and the spinach/strawberry salad. I did exactly what you said and What A Fabulous Meal! The salad dressing worked beautifully with the strawberries...and a bit of crunch from the pecans, wow! The chicken with the mango on top, YUM! This is one of the best recipes for chicken I've seen in ages...loved the spice (if others don't, then l/2 to l pepper). Thank you!!
