Lovin' From the Oven

This weekend we had a taste of fall weather, which by the way, I am not too thrilled about. I love summer. I love the sun and the hot weather. I am not too happy about all the people trying to hurry fall along - I am clinging to summer! Fall here looks like this: gray skies 99% of the time, rain, cold, dreary weather that makes you want to stay in bed all day. Why would anyone choose that over warm sunny days?? But I digress...
My point was this: the cooler days made me want to whip up something warm and comforting with some autumn spice. So I decided to make my family some homemade cinnamon rolls. I don't think I had ever made them before and I didn't have a cherished family recipe handed down form my great grandmother, so I did what I usually do and just added to a bowl what I thought seemed right. Makes more sense than finding a recipe, right?
They turned out really yummy, so I thought I'd share the *recipe* with you!
I am telling you, not much smells better than buttery cinnamon goodness wafting through the air!

Grab a mixing bowl and toss in:
2 (ish) cups of flour
1 tsp baking powder
1tsp baking soda
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup oil

Mix them all together until a nice dough forms.

Toss some flour on your clean counter and roll out the dough into a rectangle.

Butter the dough generously with very soft butter. I think I used 1/2 cup :)

Sprinkle on a mixture of:
1/3 (ish) cup brown sugar
1/3 (ish) cup white sugar
1 Tbs (ish) cinnamon
(I like a lot of cinnamon, you may want to use less.)

Roll it up and slice into 12 (ish) rolls. Place them in a buttered pan with enough space in between for the rolls to expand.
Bake at 375 for about 25 min.

3 Tbs soft butter
3 Tbs soft cream cheese
1 1/2 (ish) cups powdered sugar
a few splashes of milk
Mix together and pour over hot rolls.

Give these a try, I think you'll love them!

Pin It!

Ahhhh, these look divine! Only 6 or so more weeks and I can enjoy some carbs!

Stephanie said...

YUMM! I think I will get my sugar fix through your baking :)

And it makes my heart sad that you don't like Fall! But my sister-in-law is the same way, she loves the warmth of summer! Hoping Fall brings you something exciting this year! :)

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Chantel said...

I completely agree about the fall! I love the colors in fall, but not the cold. I was freezing this morning when I came to work... Not a fan. LoL

Those look delicious!

With no aircondition in vehicles and only a small one in our bedroom, I'm ready for fall!! Plus, I'm more of a jeans vs shorts girl anymore. Boy, has time changed. LOL Plus, the bugs are HORRIBLE here, so another reason...to bring on the fall. PLUS: you can cuddle more with your loved ones without feeling their sticky bodies on you because of the hot days of summer. LOL

Stacy said...

Oh my gosh those look delicious!! I need to try them, thanks for sharing the recipe!

sarah said...

not that i don't already eat my fair share of sweets but, i must try these. i love to bake but, i don't always like to wait for the dough to rise and even then i don't always time it right. then it is a mad dash out the door if we need to be somewhere.

please stop my blog as well. www.littlecitizensoftheworld.blogspot.com and my etsy shoppe www.melondot.etsy.com

have a sweet day, sarah

Penny said...

I wish I'd seen these sooner! Last week I had a major pregnancy craving for cinnamon rolls, but couldn't find a recipe that didn't use yeast. And honestly, that early in the morning, I don't want to wait 2 hours for my rolls! I ended up buying them in a tube next time I was at the store, and made them the next day. They really weren't even that good! So I'm bookmarking this for the next craving, thank you!

I have always made mine with yeast and that process takes forever. I have bookmarked this because I would love to try a quicker recipe. However it is still 100 degrees here so I will wait until it is cooler out to turn on my over. :o)

Tamara said...

Oh how I love homemade cinnamon rolls! My mom would make them when I was little. I also remember after she would make a pie she would roll out the leftover pie dough and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar and bake it till nice and crisp= that was my favorite part of the pie!

Etcetorize said...

I don't bake, but these looks so yummy and easy to make that I might just give it a try! Thanks~

Gail @ Faithfulness Farm said...

YUMM-O!! I am one of the fall hurriers...summer is just too hot and humid here. I do hate to see old man winter show up though.
