Helter Skelter Sweet Rolls

This is a simple cinnamon recipe that my mom likes to call ‘Helter Skelter.’ She got this from a coworker in Norfolk, NE in 1976. It’s called ‘Helter Skelter’ because you tear two loaves of frozen bread dough and place it ‘helter skelter’ in the baking pan.



Step: 1

Grease a 13x9-inch baking dish. Sprinkle walnuts into the bottom of the baking dish. Sprinkle about half the raisins with the walnuts.

Step: 2

Tear one bread dough loaf into pieces; add to baking dish and top with remaining raisins.

Step: 3

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir brown sugar, pudding mix, milk, and cinnamon with the butter; cook, stirring frequently, until the dry ingredients dissolve completely and the mixture thickens into a caramel-like sauce. Drizzle the sauce over the bread in the baking dish.

Step: 4

Tear remaining dough loaf into pieces and arrange into he pan, filling any empty spots with dough pieces.

Step: 5

Let the dough raise for 2 1/2 hours to overnight.

Step: 6

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Step: 7

Bake in preheated oven until no longer doughy in the center, about 30 minutes. Cool rolls in pan for 15 minutes.

Step: 8

Turn the rolls out onto a serving platter large enough to contain the sauce that will run off the rolls.

The quality of the flour could make a real difference to your bread. Different brands do vary. Great taste or Canadian flours, which are bet higher in gluten, may give you a better rise than standard dough flours – especially if you’re making wholemeal dough , which doesn’t always getting bigger as well as clear bread.

To made this in a breadmaker , add all the menus to your breadmaker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.

A bread first rising can be make in the fridge 24 hours . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great limit , as you can work it yesterday , then finish it off the next day.
