Sage's Cinnamon Rolls

The perfect roll for a mid-morning break with cup of coffee! Sage's Cinnamon Rolls

Gooey Sticky Cinnamon Rolls


1 ½ c. lukewarm milk

1 ½ T. Yeast

Dissolve yeast in warm milk and let mixture set for 5 minutes or until bubbly.


Next add:

2/3 c. granulated sugar

1 ½ t. salt

2/3 c. softened butter

2 eggs, beaten

1 c. mashed potatoes (left over or instant is fine)

7-7 ½ c. bread flour (add as directed below)


Mix above ingredients, then add 4 cups flour, mixing until a soft, sticky dough forms.  Gradually add additional flour, one cup at a time, mixing until dough becomes stiffer and no longer sticks to bowl.  Turn on to a floured board and knead for 10 minutes, adding a little flour as needed to keep dough from sticking to hands and board.  When dough is soft and elastic, put it into a greased bowl, then cover and let rise for about an hour, or until double in bulk.  Punch dough down, then roll out on a floured surface to about a 9” by 15” square. Spread with softened butter, then sprinkle on ½ c. brown sugar mixed with 2 t. cinnamon.  Roll up starting with widest side, then stick the final edge to the roll by using a bit of water to “glue” it to the roll. 


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.


Prepare gooey topping by combining:

1 lb bag of dark brown sugar

1/2 pt. heavy cream


Prepare a 9x13 pan (or a jelly roll pan if you prefer the rolls to be further apart)  by spraying it with nonstick spray. Pour in the brown sugar/cream mixture and spread evenly across the pan.


Slice the cinnamon roll log by using either a sharp knife or a length of thread, then lay the slices evening in the prepared pan on top of the brown sugar mixture.  Cover with a damp towel and let raise in a warm place until double. 


Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes.  When done, turn the pan over onto a sheet pan or tray, so the rolls are upside down and the gooey part is on top.  Delicious!


*If you prefer a roll with icing, forgo the gooey topping part, and bake the rolls on a greased sheet as directed above, then top with icing after they are mostly cool.
