Yield 12 rolls




  • 3/4 cup (150g) packed light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon fine salt
  • 4 tablespoons (57g) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 large banana, thinly sliced


  • 1 cup (125g) powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup


  • Make the ultimate simple dough through the first rise (through step 4).
  • Generously grease two 9-inch pie pans or one 9×13-inch baking pan.
  • Prepare the filling: In small bowl, combine brown sugar, cinnamon and salt.
  • On a lightly floured work surface, roll the dough out into a 9×15-inch rectangle.
  • Brush the melted (filling) butter all over the dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border along the edge. Sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mixture evenly over the buttered dough. Arrange the banana slices in even rows, spacing each row a couple inches apart, over the dough. Starting with the long edge, roll the dough up tightly then press the seam to seal. Use a sharp serrated knife or unscented dental floss to slice into 12 equal pieces. Place in prepared pan(s).
  • Loosely cover and allow to rise for 30 minutes to 1 hour, or until puffy.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Bake for 25 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Prepare the glaze: In a small bowl, combine the powdered sugar and maple syrup until a thick glaze forms. Drizzle over the warm rolls. Enjoy!
