    Things To Grab

    • Small saucepan
    • 2 large mixing bowls
    • Thermometer
    • Small bowl
    • Electric mixer
    • Rolling pin
    • 9-inch round cake pan
    • Medium bowl


    1. Prepare Dough: In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, stir together 1 cup almond milk, 3 tablespoons butter, and peanut butter until melted and smooth; do not boil. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and cool slightly (90 to 110 degrees). Add yeast packet and allow to stand 10 minutes or until foamy.

    2. Add brown sugar, molasses, vanilla extract, and salt to yeast mixture. In a separate bowl, mix together Kodiak Cake mix, whole wheat flour, ginger, 1 tablespoon cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Add dry ingredients to yeast mixture, 1/2 cup at a time, mixing after each addition. Dough will be sticky and thick. Remove dough from bowl and knead until it forms a soft ball.

    3. Grease a large mixing bowl with canola oil. Place dough into bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Allow to rise 1 hour in a warm place.

    4. Prepare Filling: Combine 1/4 cup butter, brown sugar, and 1 tablespoon cinnamon in a small bowl until smooth and creamy; set aside.

    5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Roll risen dough on a lightly floured clean work surface and roll dough into a large rectangle 1/4-inch thick. Spread cinnamon mixture over dough within 1-inch of boarders. If desired, sprinkle with additional cinnamon. Roll dough into a large log. Cut log into 14 rolls. Place rolls into a 9-inch greased cake pan. Bake 22 to 25 minutes or until rolls have puffed and are lightly browned and cooked through. Remove from oven and cool.

    6. Prepare Drizzle: Cream butter, cream cheese, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, maple syrup, and powdered sugar together in a medium bowl. Slowly add almond milk. Beat until smooth and creamy. Drizzle over cooled cinnamon rolls.
