Distinctive coffee flavor accents the filling of these ooey, gooey rolls. The glaze goes on while they are still warm—they won’t last long!. —Sherri Cox, Lucasville, Ohio

Ingredients

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 3/4 cup warm whole milk (110° to 115°)
  • 1/2 cup warm buttermilk (110° to 115°)
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 5-1/2 to 6 cups all-purpose flour
  • FILLING:
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 4 teaspoons instant coffee granules
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ICING:
  • 1-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons whole milk
  • 2 teaspoons instant cappuccino mix, optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add warm milk, buttermilk, sugar, butter, salt and 4 cups flour. Beat on medium speed until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down; turn onto a floured surface. Roll into an 18x12-in. rectangle; brush with butter. Combine brown sugar, coffee granules and cinnamon; sprinkle over dough to within 1/2 in. of edges.
  4. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Cut into 12 slices. Place rolls, cut side down, in a greased 13x9-in. baking pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 350°. Bake 22-28 minutes or until golden brown. Place pan on a wire rack. In a small bowl, beat icing ingredients until smooth. Spread over rolls. Serve warm.
