Bananas Foster Cinnamon Rolls

  • Makes 10 rolls
  • PREP: 1 hour
  • TOTAL TIME: 2 hours 45 minutes

Two of our favorite desserts, combined!

You’ll go bananas for this riff on a classic cinnamon roll, filled with boozy bananas and topped with an icing containing even more bourbon. It’s got all the flavor of a tableside dessert service from your favorite classic restaurant…mashed up with your favorite breakfast pastry. Chrissy makes this dough all the time: it’s soft, supple, and oh-so-forgiving. Don’t skimp on the fillings, and make sure to let the dough have its full rise for best results. Serve warm, then reheat, covered, in a 200°F oven for 15 minutes.

 ⅔ cup whole milk

1 ¾ teaspoons instant, quick rise, or bread machine yeast

Naturally nonstick for no-fuss cleanup Use on the stovetop, in the oven, or even over a campfire Unlike most cast iron, seasoning (the process of baking oil into the pan) is not required
