This is a recipe that I received years ago from another home schooling mother. I have altered it a bit, but I am thankful to her for giving me this recipe. It has become one of our family favorites!
You will need:
1 package yeast
3 1/2 cups warm water
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup oil
2 teaspoon salt
10-11 cups flour
Note: I quadrupled this batch, so keep that in mind when looking at the pictures.
Pour water into large bowl. Sprinkle yeast on warm water. Add sugar and oil.
Beat in 3 cups flour into mixture. Then add the salt. Mix in remaining flour.
Make a soft dough and knead lightly until a soft dough is formed.
Put the dough into oiled bowl. Cover with a damp towel.
Let rise for 4 hours.
Divide the dough into two and roll each part out into a rectangular shape.
Melt 1/2 cup butter and spread it on the dough.
Sprinkle it with cinnamon sugar.
Cut the dough in half.
A pizza cutter works great! : )
Then roll up. Slice into 1 1/2 inch slices.
In the meantime....Make your caramel sauce.
You will need:
2 Cups brown sugar
1 cup melted butter
1/2 cup corn syrup
Heat on medium-high heat until mixed well. Do not boil.
Pour sauce into pans.
After slicing the dough, lay each roll onto the sauce leaving a little room for 'growth'.
Let rise 'til morning.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until done.
Remove from oven.
Let cool for 5 minutes.
Then invert pan onto counter.
May be placed back in the pan or on a serving platter with the caramel side up.
Sorry for not having a finished photo with the baked rolls.....I forgot to take pictures the next morning. : (
I guess we were too anxious to eat them. : )
