Bruce and I made an overload of these pumpkin cinnamon rolls for our breakfast networking event. I got the recipe from TheLazyMomCooks. I had to make some adjustments to the recipe for you. The original recipe for me didn’t have nearly enough flour. Maybe my flour is too absorbent. In our recipe I increased the flour by two cups. I also suggested to add more brown sugar. So hope this helps you get the perfect pumpkin cinnamon roll.
Side note… I thought hey let’s double the recipe and we can have some leftover. AHHHH yeah I had cinnamon rolls coming out of everywhere. I gave a pan to my parents and friends. Still had way too many.
If you double it and don’t heed by warning you’re going to need an extremely large bowl.
And I apologize on the photos…. We had one a break of time to do these during that busy week and it was at 9-10pm for mixing and very early the next day for baking so you get the iPhone photo!
