Caramelized Banana Roll-Up Recipe

  • 1 cup banana puree
  • 2 packets of yeast
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6½ cups flour
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 cup pecans
  • 2 banana’s, thinly sliced
Caramel frosting:
  • ½ cup butter
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 cup cream
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

  1.   In a small saucepan over low heat, heat the ½ cup of milk and the 2 tablespoons of sugar until the sugar has disintegrated. Transfer to a small bowl. When the milk cools to 110°, sprinkle in the yeast. Set aside for about 20 minutes, for the yeast to get puffy.
  2. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the 1 cup sugar, salt and ½ cup milk, butter and salt. Cook, stirring until everything is melted and well combined, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and transfer to the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with the dough hook.
  3. With the mixer on low speed, add in the banana and mix until well incorporated. Add the eggs and mix well. Then add in the yeast mixture.
  4. With the mixer running on low speed, add the flour, 1 cup at a time. After you have added all the flour, increase the speed to medium and keep mixing until you have a smooth dough, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  5. Grease a large mixing bowl and transfer the dough to the bowl. Cover the top of the bowl with plastic wrap and put the bowl somewhere warm. Let the dough rise for at least 1 hour, and up to 3 hours.
  6. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out into a large rectangle, about 1⁄4 inch thick. Rub the butter over the surface of the dough.
  7. Sprinkle with the 2 cups of brown sugar, the cinnamon and the pecan pieces. Spread the bananas evenly over the dough.
  8. Carefully Roll the dough into a huge round log. Slice into desired size (make about 12 rolls). Put them on a sheet pan and let them rise while the oven heats up about 15-20 minutes.
  9. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake the rolls at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes or until barely golden on top and baked through.

Caramel frosting:
  1. In a small saucepan, combine the butter, brown sugar, cream and salt. Cook over medium heat until melted. Stir together and cook until simmering for about 3 minutes.
  2. Pull the pan off the heat and whisk in the powdered sugar.
  3. Spread the frosting over the warm rolls, and serve!

Note: Serves 12
