This recipe is from Judie Byrd's Kitchen which airs on the Family Net Channel. I am determined to make this during the Holidays while all the kids are at home. Keep your fingers crossed. For me, yeast is in the same category as springform pans. :)

The Recipe:
1 box butter recipe yellow cake mix
5 cups of flour
2 packages dry yeast
2 1/2 cups warm water
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar mixed with 2 tablespoons cinnamon
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup raisins
Sugar Glaze
4 cups powdered sugar, sifted
4 tablespoons butter melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup milk - enough to make frosting of a thin consistency

Makes 24 rolls
1. Butter two, 9x13 baking pans.
2. Combine cake mix, flour and yeast in a large bowl; stir until well blended.
3. Add warm water and stir to blend well; cover and let rise until double in bilk.
4. Punch down dough and cut in half. On a floured surface, roll the first half into a large rectangle. Spread dough with 1/2 butter and 1/2 of the sugar/ cinnamon. Sprinkle with 1/2 of the nuts and raisins.
5. Roll up jellyroll fashion and cut into 12 slices. Place rolls in prepared pan.
6. Repeat with remainder of dough. Let rise in pans until double.
7. Preheat oven to 350.
8. Bake rolls 25 minutes or until just done in the center.
9. Remove from oven and drizzle with sugar glaze.

This is one of our all-time favorite recipes!!! I have made these for years and they are always a Christmas morning staple. If you line the pan with foil, then you can easily lift them out, wrap them up to freeze also. My recipe also calls for a yummy brown sugar, butter, corn syrup, pecan glaze poured in the bottom of the pan before putting in the cut rolls. This recipe also makes a great dinner roll!! Enjoy them, they will always be a part of your life after you try them once!! Blessings, Linda

Cole said...

Looks SO yummy, especially with the frosting dripping. That's when you know they're going to be good. :) Thanks for sharing with my TT readers. :)

donna said...

I agree with you about yeast...many years ago...we agreed not to even try to be buddies anymore.
But this recipe...well, I might give it another go.
I'll let you know if I was able to do it...or if we resort to the little pillsbury doughboy.
Have a Wonderful day...donna

I am still laughing! We have the same phobias: springform pans and yeast.

I am inspired to face my fears!

cindy said...

OK, cake mix and yeast...I could do these. Waaay easier than some of the cinny roll recipes that I've seen. And who does'nt love a good cinny roll?

I don't know if you're still blogging, but I'm still using this recipe. Best sweet roll recipe in the world! I do one roll cinnamon and chopped candied and spiced pecans, then top with cream cheese icing and the second roll I sprinkle with orange sugar and top with orange cream cheese icing. The family is always happy 😊 😁
