Cinnamon Rolls made with Rhodes
Hi Everyone, Welcome back to Turnips 2 Tangerines:) Today, Cinnamon Rolls made with Rhodes frozen bread dough is on the menu. I can’t think of a better way to rouse my family out of their warm beds than with the delicious smell of cinnamon wafting from the kitchen. This recipe is not only super simple to make but it really couldn’t get any more delicious, (well maybe it could, if some chocolate was involved). I always have frozen bread dough tucked away in my freezer and so should you! Besides cinnamon rolls, there are so many wonderful things you can make with Rhodes frozen bread dough.
In my area, five loaves of Rhodes frozen bread dough sells for around $6.00, depending on which store you go too and whether or not they are on sale. Packages of three loaves of frozen bread dough are a few dollars cheaper. When frozen bread dough goes on sale in your area, do what I do and stock up! You will be amazed at just how fast you’ll go through packages of frozen bread dough. After all, frozen bread dough is meant to make loaves of freshly baked bread! And who doesn’t like a slice of warm bread with butter. What can you make with frozen bread dough?

Rhodes Frozen Bread Dough
First off, this isn’t a sponsored post. I just happen to love Rhodes frozen bread dough. Anything that I have ever made using this product has turned out, and that isn’t always the case. I am a firm believer that if you find something that works for you, no matter what it is, stick with it. This way you won’t be disappointed because you tried something else. So many times I’d try a substitution for a product, (usually a cheaper off brand or an on sale item) only to be disappointed. I’ve learned over the years to stick with what I know. However, there have been exceptions to this rule but not that many to always throw caution to the wind.

Cinnamon Rolls made with Rhodes Frozen Bread Dough
- 1 loaf frozen bread dough
- 2/3 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans, or walnuts
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 6 tablespoons heavy cream
- 1 cup confectioners' sugar
- 1 1/2 tablespoons milk
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- Using shortening grease a large bowl. Place the frozen bread loaf inside and grease a piece of plastic wrap to place over the dough. Thaw the dough in the refrigerator overnight from 10 to 12 hours, or for about 4 to 5 hours at room temperature.
- grease 2 8-inch round cake pans.
- In a medium bowl, combine the brown sugar, finely chopped pecans, and cinnamon. Mix well to combine and set aside.
- On a lightly floured surface, roll out the thawed bread dough into an 18x6-inch rectangle. The dough is quite elastic, so be patient when rolling it out to the recommended size. Let the dough rest for a few minutes now and then and it will relax and be easier to roll. Brush the melted butter evenly over the dough.
- Sprinkle the brown sugar and cinnamon mixture over the buttered dough.
- Starting at the long end, carefully roll the dough up to form a log. Slice the log into 20 uniform slices.
- Arrange the formed rolls in the buttered cake pans. Move the pans to a draft-free place, cover with a clean kitchen towel, and let them rise for about 1 1/2 hours, or until doubled in bulk.
- When the rolls have nearly doubled in size, preheat the oven to 350 F.
- Drizzle the heavy cream evenly over the rolls—about 3 tablespoons per pan—and bake for 25 minutes. Remove the cinnamon rolls to racks to cool until just slightly warm.
- Make the Icing
- While the rolls cool off, sift the powdered sugar into a medium bowl, add the milk and vanilla, and stir until well blended. For thinner icing, add more milk, a few drops at a time. To thicken, add more powdered sugar.
- Drizzle over warm cinnamon rolls. Serve
