Happy T-Day! A recipe to share

Fast & Easy Cinnamon Buns (my version)
Happy Thanksgiving! I just found a fantastic recipe for cinnamon buns this morning that is sooooooooooo quick and easy and sooooooo delicious that I thought I would share my version with you. It is all made in the same dish.

1-Dish Cinnamon Swirl

Batter:
cooking spray
1 1/2 c all -purpose flour
1/4 c sugar
1 tsp salt
2 envelopes Fleischmann's RapidRise Yeast (make sure it is rapid rise) (Yes, 2 is correct)
2/3 c very warm milk (I heated it in the microwave for a few seconds)
2 T butter, melted (I used unsalted butter)
2 T corn oil (I used Canola oil)
1 lg egg (from a vegetarian fed chicken, of course)
Cinnamon Mixture:
3 T butter melted
3/4 c light or dark brown sugar (I used dark brown--mine was lumpy so I heated it a few seconds in the microwave and it softened it)
1 1/2 t ground cinnamon
Icing:
1 c powdered sugar
1-2 T milk
1 T butter, melted
1/2 t vanilla extract
Mix batter ingredients together in a pre-sprayed 8x8" baking dish. Let rest for 10 min. (I used a spoon to mix it) Combine cinnamon mixture in a small bowl by mixing with fork. Top batter evenly with cinnamon mixture. Using fingers, poke topping thoroughly into batter.

Bake by placing in a cold oven; set temperature to 350 degrees F; bake for 25-30 minutes, until lightly browned and firm in center. (It will look lumpy by now) Cool 10 min. Drizzle icing over warm cake. Delicious yeast cinnamon rolls. I cut into squares and as you can see, we ate two already. Yummy! Have a great T-Day! (I found the recipe at the Fleischmann's website).

Hi!
You can come to my house and prepare this at any time...said the non-cook, non-baker...but willing eater! Looks delicious! Perhaps my Steve will like the recipes. I know I'd enjoy the result!
