GF Baking Adventures: Cinnamon “rolls”

It’s been another day for baking something sweet and delicious. Today, as the wind whipped through the trees and the sound of crinkly leaves hit my ears I began to long for cinnamon rolls.  It’s hard to get good GF cinnamon rolls.  Either the roll is too tough or too dry or the whole darn thing just falls apart.  Today my son and I decided to take that challenge and make them ourselves.

We used a muffin pan for our delectable treats and filled it with muffin papers.

Then we mixed:

One can Sweetened Condensed Milk (Low Fat Version)

Two eggs

Two cups Pamela’s Baking Mix

1/4 cup thoroughly pounded up walnuts ( my kids hate nuts in baked goods, so I will often mash them into a powder in order to add them without the kids noticing.)

1 tbsp cinnamon

1 tsp cloves

We mixed that together until it was thoroughly blended.  Then we filled the muffin cups halfway.

In a separate pan we mixed our filling:

1/2 stick butter

2/3 cup brown sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1/4 cup walnuts (once again smashed to smithereens.)

We mixed that up and let it boil for a minute before taking off the heat.  Using a teeny tiny funnel I had lying around we poke holes into the center of the uncooked muffins and poured about 2 tsps of the filling into the center of each muffin.  The filling oozed out on the top of each muffin, forming an inner circle of goo.

We popped these in the oven at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

While we waited for the muffins to cook we prepared the glaze:

1/2 stick of butter

1 tsp. vanilla

1/2 cup powdered sugar

We mixed the vanilla and butter until melted, then stirred the sugar in until smooth.  We removed the mixture from the heat.

Once we removed the muffins from the oven we discovered the filling had left a central whole in each muffin.  We filled these in with the remaining filling.  Once finished we drizzled the glaze atop each one and sat down to enjoy them with a glass of cold milk.

They are delicious!
