I found this on the net. I'm usually dubious about most recipes but this one in particular turned out rather well. I like this recipe because its easy to make and doesn't take all day. I had a comment on yesterdays blog; its not a secret recipe and here it is:

Banana Bread Cinnamon Rolls
(Most Important Step ~ Turn On Oven Light Now)
4 tsp Yeast (bottle says 2-1/4 makes one tsp) I doubled this because I found it makes the dough plump better.
1/2 c Warm Water (I warm the bowl first)
1/3 c Melted Butter (I mix sugar in as well)
1/3 c Brown Sugar
1/2 c Warm Milk (added into the butter/sugar)
5 c     Flour
1 tsp  Salt
1 tsp  Cinnamon (salt/cinnamon mix into flour)
2        Eggs (mixed in with Bananas)
3        Ripe Bananas
  • Mix yeast and water according to instructions and set aside to rise.
  • Combine butter, sugar and milk to melt together.
  • Mix the rest with a dough hook set to knead: 
  • I add the flour, salt and cinnamon to the mixer bowl.
  • Mix the yeast/water with the melted butter mixture and add it to the flour; mix till combined.
  • Add banana and eggs. Mix.
  • Add remaining flour and mix. 
You'll have a batter dough that you can 'pour' into a greased bowl, cover with a tea towel and place in the oven for 2 hours to rise.

Filling: (already doubled)

1 c Softened Butter
12 oz Brown Sugar (3/4 c x 2)
2 Tbsp Cinnamon
  • Mix all together and melt. 
**Roll out dough to 1/4 inch and fill. 
**Roll together and cut into parts.
**Place in parchment lined pans.
**Put in oven to rise until doubled (1 Hour).
**Bake at 350 F for 20 minutes.

You can Frost or just eat!

8 oz room temperature Cream Cheese
4 oz room temperature Butter
2 c   Powdered Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla

~~After 30 minutes, frost cooled buns.
