“A childhood favorite that my Grandmother makes. Cinnamon rolls with a sweet, gooey top.”
36 rolls

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For the goo (you can wait until the rolls are almost ready to start this process):.
  2. Melt 1/2 stick of butter, 1 cup brown sugar, and 1/2 cup of Karo dark syrup in a sauce pan.
  3. Pour the result into 4 round pans.
  4. For the rolls:.
  5. Combine 1/2 cup sugar, 1 tsp salt, yeast, and milk. Let stand for about 10 minutes.
  6. Beat 4 eggs in a separate bowl.
  7. Add eggs to the batter and beat until well blended.
  8. Add 3 1/2 cups of flour to the batter and mix inches.
  9. Add a stick of melted butter and mix inches.
  10. Gradually add another 3 cups of flour. Once mixed, knead or use a mixer with bread hook for about 10 minutes.
  11. Cover with a damp towel and let raise for 2 hours or until double in size.
  12. Punch down and then let it raise again until double.
  13. Divide the dough into 4ths and roll out to 1/2 to 1 inch thick.
  14. Spread some softened butter on the dough and sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon.
  15. Roll up the dough and cut into 9 rolls.
  16. Arrange the rolls in the pans (the pans should have the goo in them by this stage).
  17. Let the rolls rise a little bit.
  18. Bake at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes. If the tops start to brown early, you may want to cover them (a pie tin works well).
  19. Remove from oven and turn the pan upside down to extract the rolls onto a serving dish.
