- Servings: 12
- Preparation Time:
- ½ cup milk
- ¼ cup butter
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 ¼ teaspoons yeast
- 3-3 ½ cups flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 large ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 cup)
- ½ teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1/2 cup walnuts
- 1/4 cup cold butter, cut into 4-5 pieces
- 2 tablespoons butter, softened
- 2 tablespoons cream cheese, softened
- ½ teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- ½ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
- 2-3 tablespoons milk
- Preheat oven to 375 ° F.
- Put the milk and butter in a measuring cup and microwave for about 45 seconds or until the temperature is 110 ° F. (bathwater warm). If it gets too hot, just let it cool for a few minutes. Pour into the large mixing bowl; stir in the sugar and then the yeast. Let this mixture stand for about 5 minutes, or until it begins to foam.
- Add two cups of the flour, the salt, the banana, and the spices to the yeast mixture and beat well. Add the remaining flour, ½ cup at a time, stirring well after each addition. When the dough has just pulled together, turn it onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, about 5 minutes (alternately, use the dough hook on a stand mixer).
- Place the dough in a greased bowl and cover with a clean damp towel. Allow dough to rise until double, about 1 hour. In the mean time, process the brown sugar, walnuts, and cinnamon in a food processor until the mixture is well blended and the walnuts are chopped. Add the cold butter and pulse until incorporated.
- Roll out the dough into a 12 X 9 inch rectangle (I like to do this on my Silpat). Sprinkle the walnut mixture evenly over the dough, leaving a 1/2 inch edge. Roll up the dough from the long side and pinch seam to seal. Cut into 12 equal sized pieces and place into a greased 9 X 13 inch pan. Cover and let rise until doubled (or refrigerate overnight).
- Bake rolls at 375 ° F. for 25 to 30 minutes or until browned. Remove from oven and frost while warm.
- For frosting, beat the cream cheese and the butter in a medium bowl. Add the nutmeg and vanilla. Slowly add the powdered sugar and milk, beating to desired consistency.
