Banana Bread Cinnamon Rolls 




For the Dough:

1 cup warm milk

2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast (1 packet)

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup melted unsalted butter

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon salt

4 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup mashed banana (about 2-3 medium bananas)

For the Filling:

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened

1 cup brown sugar

2 tablespoons ground cinnamon

1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

For the Icing:

4 oz cream cheese, softened

1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


In a large bowl, mix warm milk with yeast and sugar. Let it sit for 5 minutes until foamy.

Add melted butter, eggs, salt, and mashed banana. Mix well.

Gradually add flour, stirring until the dough comes together. Knead on a lightly floured surface for about 10 minutes.

Place dough in a greased bowl, cover, and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour or until doubled in size.

For the filling, combine butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a bowl.

Roll out dough on a floured surface into a 20×14-inch rectangle. Spread the filling over the dough and sprinkle with walnuts, if using.

Roll up tightly from the long side. Cut into 12 rolls and place in a greased baking dish.

Cover and let rise again for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).

Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown.

For the icing, beat cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Spread over warm rolls.
