Decadent Raspberry Cinnamon Rolls
- 5 cups all purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cups yellow cake mix
- 2 packages rapid rise yeast
- 2 cups warm water
- 1/2 cup butter (1 stick), softened and divided
- 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
- 3 Tablespoons ground cinnamon
- 12 oz frozen raspberries, thawed
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3-4 tablespoons milk
- Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly grease a 13 x 9 jelly pan and set aside.
- Add 4 cups of the flour, cake mix, yeast and salt. Whisk to combine.
- Slowly pour in the warm water and stir to combine.
- Add an additional 3/4 cup flour onto the wet dough and knead in the bowl for 1-2 minutes.
- Sprinkle your workspace with the remaining 1/4 cup of flour and place the dough on top. Knead for 5 minutes until soft and elastic.
- Using a rolling pin, roll the dough out into a rectangular shape. Spread 6 tablespoons of softened butter all over the dough.
- Combine the sugar and cinnamon into a bowl and whisk to combine. Generously sprinkle on top of the buttered dough.
- Scatter the raspberries on top of the cinnamon sugar and roll, starting with the long side of the rectangle. Seal each end by pinching in the dough.
- With a serrated knife, slice 1 1/2 inch slices of the dough and place on the greased jelly pan.
- Cover the pan loosely with a towel and place in a warm area for 15 minutes to allow the rolls time to expand.
- Remove towel and bake for 15 minutes or until the rolls are a light brown in color. Remove from oven and place the pan on a wire rack to cool while you prepare the homemade icing.
- Add the powdered sugar, the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter (melted), vanilla and milk to a small mixing bowl. Whisk to combine. For a thinner glaze, use 4 tablespoons of milk. For a thicker glaze, use only 3 tablespoons.
- Generously drizzle the icing on top of the raspberry cinnamon rolls and ENJOY!!!
