I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake in a Slow Cooker

Simple cinnamon rolls baked like a coffee cake in a slow cooker ... is your curiosity piqued?

3/4 cup milk, warmed to 105-110°F
2  1/4 tsps instant yeast
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup semi salted butter, melted and slightly cooled
1 egg
2  3/4 cups flour

5 tbsps semi salted butter
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/3 cup sugar

1  1/4 cups icing sugar
2 tbsps maple syrup
2 tbsps milk

In a large mixer bowl sprinkle yeast over warmed milk with 1 tsp sugar and cover the bowl with a dish towel. Leave for 5-10 minutes or until yeast is bubbly. Using the dough hook attachment, add the balance of the sugar, salt, 1/4 cup butter, egg and 2 cups flour. Then, while mixing on low, add 1/4 cup of flour at a time until the dough comes away from the side of the bowl. Then knead (by mixer or by hand) for 2 minutes. Again cover with a dish towel and let rest 5-10 minutes.
Roll dough out to form a 14 X 8" rectangle. Spread the filling butter. Combine the cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle evenly over the butter.

Line a 4-5 qt. slow cooker crock with parchment.
Roll the dough up firmly from the 14" side and cut into 12. Place the rolls into the pot.

Cover top with a paper towel to absorb excess moisture and place the lid on top.

Set the slow cooker on high and bake for 1 hr and 50 minutes to 2 hours. They will be very brown on the bottom at 2 hours.

Immediately use the parchment to lift the rolls out of the cooker. Wow!

Place it on a cooling rack. Combine the frosting ingredients and once the rolls are semi cooled start drizzling. If you find the drizzle is melting away just wait until it cools a little more.

Tah Dah!

Cinnamon roll coffee cake in just about 2 1/2 hours!

Of course if you want to try traditionally oven baked cinnamon rolls you'll want to try this recipe 🠟 

But for days when you don't want to use the oven, this is the way to go!
