Gas prices are so high I asked for five dollars worth and the attendant sprayed a little behind my ear.

  1. I plan on making these this weekend. My mom made them when I was a kid. I don’t have a bundt pan can I use a 9×13 or a spring form pan?

    • If you wanted to serve them in the afternoon it’s probably best to get everything started as you’re pouring your first cup of coffee – best to give yourself approximately 8 hours for the dough to thaw properly

  4. I’ve made this recipe many times… you can use a spring form pan if you wish, but make sure you bake it on a cookie sheet, or else you will end up with melted butter and sugar dripping all over the bottom of your oven. I found this out the hard way.

    • Hi Sharron, those frozen dinner rolls are not as readily available as they used to be – we often have to “hunt” them down, too! Sometimes they can be found in the frozen fruit section, other times they are with the frozen pastry and desserts, it varies from store to store. An option is to make bread dough (enough for a single loaf) from scratch and proceed with the recipe. Happy baking.

    • Sharron, try Save On Foods, I found some at my Nanaimo location. The brand is “Knead to Bake” Frozen Dinner Roll Dough. Be careful to get the “rolls”, though, as the same brand has the frozen “loaves” of bread right next to them. It’s easier to use the rolls !

  13. I have made these so many times and they have never come out syrupy. I have a friend that makes them and hers ooze syrup, she has also walked me through making them to make sure I’m doing it correctly. I live in Vancouver (get my frozen dinner rolls from Save-On) and have tried them in different ovens, bought different Bundt pans and it never syrups. Any tips? I’m a good baker and this is the only thing baked good that I fail out every time. What brown sugar and vanilla pudding does everyone use?
