Last Monday we had a snowpocalypse. So much so that school got cancelled for everyone which meant that I got to work from home. It kind of worked out because two of the four kids were sick and I kept running them medicine all day after they had me up at four in the morning.
The snowplow also didn't make it down our street until noon! We were snowed in with almost a foot of snow. It was crazy!
With the other two (not sick---yet!) kids we made a backyard snow fort
and a sledding hill.
And then some of these for breakfast.
I found these delicious buttery bundt pan rolls on Mel's Kitchen Cafe. I decided to adapt it a little and make a simple and easy breakfast that the kids said resembles monkey bread. And I was able to double it and make one that we could freeze too.
What I love about these rolls are that you can serve them at a party or family event and they look so elegant but are ready in about an hour!
Gather Your Ingredients
Before you get started, make sure you have all of the ingredients needed for this delectable recipe. You will need water, sugar, yeast, egg, oil, salt, flour, butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. Now that you have all your ingredients together, let's get started on making these tasty cinnamon rolls!
Preheat the Oven and Prepare the Bundt Pan
Before you begin rolling up the cinnamon rolls, preheat your oven to 375°F (or 190°C). Grease a 10-inch bundt pan well with butter and coat lightly with white sugar and ground cinnamon. Make sure that all areas of the bundt pan are coated evenly. This will add a nice extra layer of flavor to the finished cinnamon rolls!
Make the Dough with Your Stand Mixer
For the dough, combine 3 ¼ cups of flour with ¼ cup of sugar, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 tablespoon yeast and 4 tablespoons of softened butter in a stand mixer bowl. Slowly add oil and egg until ingredients are combined. Then mix on medium speed for about 5 minutes until dough is soft and somewhat elastic. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let rise for about 10-15 minutes.
Layer the Cinnamon Sugar Filling and Fill Your Bundt Pan
To make the most out of this recipe, layer the cinnamon sugar filling between your dough before placing it in your Bundt pan. Start by sprinkling a thin layer of a mix of cinnamon, sugar, and nutmeg over your entire surface. Then, roll out the dough and cut into 24 even-sized squares. You're so close to having the perfect buttery cinnamon rolls!

Easy Buttery Bundt Pan Cinnamon Rolls
- 1 cup warm water
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon yeast
- 1 large egg
- 1 tablespoon oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 ¼ to 3 ½ cups unbleached all purpose flour (we also tried it with a gluten free flour blend and it worked great)
- 8 tablespoon butter, melted
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
In the bowl of a mixer with the dough hook attached place the warm water, sugar, yeast, egg, oil, salt, and two cups of flour in the bowl. On low speed, mix the dough for 1-2 minutes until dough is mixed. Add remaining flour ¼ cup at a time, allowing dough to mix completely before adding additional dough. You will know you've added enough dough when it clears the sides of the bowl and begins to form a ball in the mixer. When it does that, mix for additional two minutes, then turn the mixer off and allow the dough to sit for 10-15 minutes.
After dough has sat, lightly flour the countertop then place the dough on the countertop. (For gluten free you will want to lightly flour two pieces of plastic wrap then place the dough between the two pieces of plastic wrap). Roll the dough into a ½ inch thick even rectangle (approximately 12x10 inches). Using a pizza cutter or dough knife cut the dough into 24 even squares.
Melt the butter then pour the butter into the bundt pan. In a small bowl stir the brown sugar and cinnamon together. Dip each square into the butter, coating the bread, then dip it into the sugar mixture. Set aside until all pieces have been buttered and covered in sugar and cinnamon. Once all pieces have been dipped, arrange the pieces in a layer around the bottom of the pan.
Cover the bundt pan and allow to rise for approximately 20-40 minutes in a warm area (for quick rise allow it to rise in a warm 160 degree oven) or until dough is puffy and has filled in the pan. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Bake the bread for 25-30 minutes or until the bread is golden brown on top. Remove from oven and allowt the bread to cool in the pan for 10-15 minutes before removing from the pan.
Turn the bread onto a plate. Drizzle with 1 cup powdered sugar mixed with 1-2 tablespoon of milk that forms a glaze. Serve warm or allow to cool then serve.
