Share a Spoon - Land of Nod Cinnamon Buns

So Maurnie submitted two recipes this week for Share a Spoon and said I could pick which one I wanted to use.  Um...I pick both!

I will make them separate posts so that they are easily printable.

Here we go!

Cinnamon buns are bread…right?  *Even* if one is not actually making the bread?  This is a do-ahead recipe so make before you head to bed and you’ll be enjoying cinnamon buns with your morning coffee.

Land-of-Nod Cinnamon Buns

20     Frozen buns or rolls (plain, white pre-made bread rolls.  The kind you take and bake at home)
1    cup lightly packed brown sugar
¼   cup dry vanilla instant pudding mix
2         TBSP cinnamon
¾   cup raisins or nuts (optional)
½   cup butte

Mix brown sugar, pudding mix, cinnamon and raisins/nuts in a bowl.

Grease an angel food cake pan

Place rolls in pan (only 20).

Pour sugar mixture evenly over frozen buns.

Melt butter and drizzle over buns

Cover with damp, clean cloth in a warm, draft free location over night.  

The buns will thaw and rise over night.
 In the morning preheat oven to 350 and bake for 25 minutes until browned nicely. 

Remove from oven and cool slightly.  Invert them on serving platter and voila! pull apart cinnamon buns.

This sounds EASY and amazing.  What's better than that?

Thanks for Sharing this recipe Maurnie!
