Sprinkles and a double sugar mixture make these "cinnamon" rolls extra special! They have a thick layer of buttercream frosting on top and all of the birthday cake flavors one could want in a gluten free "cinnamon" roll!
There are few treats I like better than a good cinnamon roll, and these birthday cake "cinnamon" rolls are so perfectly delicious and fun! Make them for a birthday breakfast, or for a treat any day, and your family is sure to love them.
Birthday Cake "Cinnamon" Rolls
- 2 Tablespoons Butter
- 1/4 Cup Sugar
- 2/3 Cup of warm Milk
- 1 Tablespoon Yeast
- 1 Flax-Egg (directions on side of blog)
- 1/4 Cup Canola Oil
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 1/2 Cup Potato Starch
- 1 Cup Corn Starch
- 2 1/2 Teaspoons Xantham Gum
- 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
- 2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
- 1/4 Teaspoon Baking Soda
- 1/2 Cup White Sugar
- 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
- 2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- In a medium bowl, mix together the butter and sugar.
- Heat your milk, not too hot but warm enough to activate yeast, and add in the yeast. Whisk together until dissolved.
- Add the milk/yeast mixture to the sugar and stir together. Add the flaxegg, oil and vanilla, and mix again.
- Add all of the dry ingredients and mix well to combine, removing all lumps (expect the dough to be pretty soft/sticky).
- Sprinkle a big sheet of plastic wrap with sugar and plop dough out onto it. Add a second layer of plastic wrap and roll dough out between them, making roughly a 13" by 13" square.
- Mix together the white sugar, brown sugar and vanilla.
- Remove top layer of wrap and sprinkle sugar/vanilla mixture over dough. Shake on the sprinkles. Then, lifting up an edge of the plastic wrap to help you, roll the dough. Cut with a knife and place in a greased pan (I usually bake mine in a 9x13 and they all fit).
- Bake for about 20 minutes (until tops are lightly browned), and frost when slightly cooled.
- 6 Tablespoons Butter
- 1 1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
- 2 Tablespoons Milk
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 1/8 teaspoon Salt
- Cream butter in your mixer.
- Add the powdered sugar to the butter and beat until combined.
- Add the milk, vanilla and salt, and beat for about 2 minutes, until light and fluffy.
