You guys, I seriously have the best job in the world.  I was recently contacted by Cinnabon® to try out their new Baking Kit and a couple of their recipes.  I was so excited that I couldn’t wait to see the UPS man come driving down my street. They were so sweet to send me a box full of fun goodies!

The baking kit was definitely the star of the show!

All you need to make 8 delicious cinnamon rolls are:

  • Cinnabon Baking Kit
  • 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 1 cup buttermilk (or regular milk)
  • 1 large egg
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • Flour for dusting

That is it!!  It is seriously so easy!  They come out fluffy and DELICIOUS!  My parents happened to stop by right after these came out of the oven. They LOVED them! I even sent them home with a couple to eat for breakfast the next morning.  By the way, these warm up FABULOUSLY the next day.  I just stuck mine in the microwave for about 20 seconds and it was perfection!  These would make the perfect breakfast (or dessert, or snack…) over the holidays.  Whether you just eat them as fluffy cinnamon rolls or turn them into french toast.

Anyway, Cinnabon has some crazy good recipes that you can make using this Cinnabon Kit.  This morning we tried the Cinnabon French Toast.  It didn’t hardly take any time at all and it was delicious!

You could make this even easier if you have a Cinnabon store near you. Just pick up some fresh Cinnabons to use in your french toast.  Yum!!

Cinnabon Bundt Cake

I don’t know about you, but when I think of the holidays one of the first things that comes to mind is Cinnamon!  Who am I kidding.  If you know me at all, you know that I have Cinnamon on my mind ALL the time.  It just makes everything delicious.  Today, I am sharing my Cinnabon Bundt Cake with you.

First, I need to confess something to you.  I have always been one that absolutely LOVED getting out in the hustle and bustle of holiday shopping.  I loved the crowds, the excitement that filled the air, all of it!  However, as I get older, I am finding that I am really loving shopping online.  Sitting on the couch in my comfy pajamas next to my warm fireplace… you just can’t beat that.  Shopping online I have found some really great deals.  Even more than that though, I have found some PERFECT gifts that I would never have found in local stores.  It’s a win/win all the way around.  Now I do still go out for some of my shopping and still enjoy that too.  By the way, I have a post coming up later this week with some great gift ideas of my favorite things.  You won’t want to miss that!

Ok, now that I have made my confession, it’s time to talk about this amazing cake.  The secret ingredient is the Cinnabon coffee creamer from International Delight.  This stuff smells amazing.  It almost makes me want to just chug it from the bottle.  This creamer is really versatile too.  We have used it in Snickerdoodle cookies, milkshakes, and blondies.  I love it!  If you aren’t a cinnamon lover, they have lots of other delicious flavors to enjoy.  Want even more great ideas using International Delight creamers?  Be sure to check out their Pinterest boards for lots of great recipe inspiration.  Oh, and don’t forget my Cinnabon Donuts that I shared awhile back.  They are definitely one of our favorite donut recipes!

Cinnabon Donuts

I have to tell you that I am totally addicted to homemade donuts.  Tons of recipe ideas are always swirling around in my head.  When I made these, my kids went nuts.  Noah ate nearly 3/4 of them himself.  They are soooo good.  I will definitely be making these again and again.  You know how even the donuts from those famous places tend to get hard or stale the next day?  Not these.  They were still fresh the next morning and quickly gobbled up!  Not to mention super easy to make!

I keep giggling while I type up this post because my husband made the comment at dinner the other night that I add cinnamon to everything. Not true, but I do have to admit that I LOVE cinnamon in a lot of things.  An example would be these Cinnabon Donuts.  They are nothing short of A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!

I also have to admit to my new obsession with International Delight Coffee Creamers.  I have been creating all kinds of yummy treats with them (coming to the blog soon).  They come in a wide variety of flavors which makes the possibilities nearly endless!

One of the things that makes this recipe so easy is that the base is a boxed cake mix.  I know there are those that are shaking their head at me, but I absolutely LOVE Pillsbury boxed mixes.  They are easy, always turn out perfectly and taste like homemade to me.  You can use any boxed mix you want, but I HIGHLY recommend the Pillsbury Moist Supreme mixes.  They never fail me!

Do you need a Donut maker or Donut pan?  You can pick them up from Amazon using the links below. I used the Babycakes Donut Maker and Cake Pop Makers for these.  They are AWESOME!  I am dying to try some of their other makers now!
