It’s the easiest recipe in the business when it comes to wanting sugary treats with your grandma on a wintery day where all you want is a sweet baked roll while you watch your favorite Disney movie. This is also a good way to use up bananas that have become VERY ripe before the fruit flies began to plan their arsenal attack on your sanity.
- brown sugar
- granulated white sugar
- “old” bananas
- vanilla extract
- nuts (optional); walnut, macadamia, almond, etc.
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
- Place a about 1.5 teaspoons of butter in each muffin slot of a muffin sheet; place in the oven while it is pre-heating so as to melt the butter.
- Place the extremely ripe bananas in a medium-large bowl. Using a fork, mash them until they are pureed looking mess.
- Splash in vanilla extract and a pinch of salt; give a quick mix.
- Add Bisquick, mixing thoroughly until you have a workable dough. Place upon a floured surface and work until the consistency is thick and doughy. Roll out into a rectangular shape, making sure that it isn’t too wide.
- Check on the muffin tins in the oven; once melted place a tablespoon of brown sugar do be dissolved into the butter. Leave the muffin tin sitting out.
- Once the dough is rolled out, spread butter liberally on the dough, sprinkle brown sugar liberally and then a dash of granulated white sugar. The brown sugar to white sugar ratio should be 2:1. Sprinkle cinnamon over the sugar.
- Begin to carefully roll the dough up hot dog style so that the ends are short; as you can see below
- Cut the dough into 2.5 inches in thickness; typically not more than 3 fingers. The rolls below are a little bit bigger so unless you have a larger muffin tin the rolls will puff over and make a mess
- Place them, one per muffin slot, in the muffin tin. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the dough comes out clean. Once done, turn upside down onto a plate, the tops will be gooey and delicious!
