“This is my mom's recipe. She used to make these all the time when I was a child and they would barely get out of the oven before everyone dug in. I've made them for my family and my in-laws, and I always get a ton of compliments. I've seen other recipes on here (but they all use pudding or ice cream), but this truly is a SIMPLE recipe.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 roll frozen bread dough, thawed (I love Rhodes and highly recommend it)
  • 14 cup water
  • 12 cup brown sugar, plus some
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • cinnamon


  1. Thaw bread dough beforehand.
  2. Combine water, 1/2 cup brown sugar, and butter in a small saucepan.
  3. Bring just to a boil on medium heat and then remove from heat.
  4. Roll out dough on a floured surface into a good size rectangle and sprinkle cinnamon and brown sugar on top to your liking.
  5. Roll dough like a jelly roll and slice the log into 1 1/2-inch thick rolls.
  6. Pour boiled sugar mixture onto bottom of an ungreased 9x13x2-inch baking dish.
  7. Set rolls on sides in the pan.
  8. Let rise to desired size and bake at 350 for 13-15 minutes or until brown.
