Munchie Monday: Make-a-Mix Cookery Cinnamon Buns

Some time ago I made up a batch of “Hot Roll Mix” from Make-a-Mix Cookery.  I thought it was time to use it for some early morning food.  I chose to use the Cinnamon Rolls recipe on page 213.

The recipe was easy to follow and made up rather quickly into a nice soft dough.  I left it rising in a nice warm kitchen (the wood stove was really putting out some lovely heat…so lovely that I had to remove my sweater as I was sweltering, but it was a GREAT environment for the cinnamon rolls rising step!) and went upstairs to was a little bit of General Conference and then part of Death in Paradise.  After more than an hour of rising I went back to the kitchen to shape the buns.

Here is a picture of an experiment using a pan that was on clearance at the grocery store.  (For $4.99 I could not resist.)

As it happened, since the rolls in this pan were smaller I knew I would have to adjust the cook time.  Since the large rolls were to cook for 20-25 minutes at 375 degrees F.  I decided to cook these for 15 minutes.  Wrong!  They were overcooked.  Well, I suppose you could say, burned, but they were not inedible.  Ask me how I know.  Ask what my scales had to say about the inedibility of these buns.


Anyway,  for the regular sized cinnamon buns, I cooked them only about 12 minutes, turned the pan around in the oven, then cooked for a couple more minutes.  NOT burned.



  1. I still say I'd love to eat them....at least our scales could show a sharing love of these cinnamon buns.
