Cinnamon Roll Muffins


Try baking cinnamon rolls in a muffin tin.  Cinnamon Roll Muffins make serving breakfast a breeze.


1 Cup Warm Water
1 Egg
¼ Cup Canola Oil
1/3 Cup Sugar
3½ Cups Bread Flour
1 Tablespoon Yeast
1/2 Cup Butter, softened
1/2 Cup Sugar
1 1/2 Tablespoons Cinnamon
2 Cups Powdered Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
3-4 Tablespoons Milk


Combine warm water, egg, oil, sugar, bread flour and yeast in the bowl of a stand mixer.  Mix until a ball of dough forms.  Place in a greased bowl and let rise until doubled in size, about 45-60 minutes.

Punch down the dough and turn onto a floured surface.  Roll out dough into a 12 inch by 24 inch rectangle.

Combine softened butter, sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl.  Spread butter mixture on dough.  Roll tightly to make a 24 inch long dough log.

Butter 2 muffin tins (24 muffins total).  Slice dough with a pizza cutter or pastry scraper into 1 inch slices and place in pans.  Let rise until doubled in size, about 45-60 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350°F.  Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes.

Make the glaze by mixing powdered sugar, vanilla and milk together.  Drizzle over the cinnamon roll muffins.


Note: This can be prepared the night before to bake in the morning.  Refrigerate covered before final rise.  Let sit out at room temperature for 30 minutes before baking.

Yield: 24 Muffins

Pull Apart Bundt Pizza


I’ve seen this Pull Apart Bundt Pizza idea several times and it was something that I just had to try.  Homemade pizza is a favorite in my house, so I whipped up a batch of pizza dough and got to work.  This would be great for a party since it makes quite a bit.  It would be fun to mix in different toppings into the Pull Apart Bundt Pizza as well.  Maybe one half would be pepperoni and the other half would be Hawaiian.  So, have fun with your Pull Apart Bundt Pizza!  Food is supposed to be fun and exciting!



2 Cloves Garlic, finely grated
1/4 Cup Butter
Pizza Dough, 2 pizzas worth of dough
1 Package Pepperonis
2 Cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
2 Cups Marinara Sauce, for dipping




Melt the butter in a small pot over medium heat.  Add the garlic, cooking until browned.  Remove from heat.  Brush some of the garlic butter in the bundt pan.

Take a golf ball sized piece of dough and flatten it out.  Place a pepperoni and some cheese in the center.  Fold the edges up to form a ball, with the pepperoni and cheese on the inside.  Place the stuffed dough ball in the bundt pan and brush with a little garlic butter.  Repeat until all the dough has been used.


Let the dough balls rise in the bundt pan for about 30 minutes before baking.  Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Bake until the top is golden brown, about 30-35 minutes.  Let sit for 10 minutes before turning out onto a plate.  Warm the marinara sauce for dipping.

Pizza Dough

This is Robbie’s pizza dough recipe.  It makes enough dough for 2 ~14″ pizzas.

1 ¾ cups water
¼ cup honey
½ tsp kosher salt
1 Tbsp active dry yeast
2 Tbsp Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
4-5 cups flour

In the bowl of an electric mixer add the water and honey.  Mix with the dough hook attachment for 2-3 minutes to dissolve honey.  Mix in salt, yeast and olive oil.  Add flour one cup at a time.  Let the mixer knead the dough for a minute or so in between flour doses.  Mix until the dough forms a ball that is just barely sticky.

Turn the dough out onto a floured counter.  Knead for 2 minutes, then split into two even balls.

Let the dough rise until doubled in size.

To bake:  Preheat oven to as hot as it will go, about 500°F.  Prepare a pizza pan by spraying with non-stick spray and sprinkling with corn meal.  A preheated pizza stone may be used in place of a pizza pan.  Form dough into a circle and top with desired toppings.  We normally put the cheese on last to hold on the other toppings.  Bake until browned and bubbly, about 8 minutes.
