Two Ingredient Giant Turtles Cinnamon Bun

Two Ingredient Giant Turtles Cinnamon Bun from @kitchenmagpie

You can all thank Mr Magpie for this recipe. We went out to the trailer at the lake for one last camp – we are too busy this September to get out there again-  I was rummaging around in the fridge looking for something to bake up for dessert.

I had a can of large cinnamon rolls in my hand and hollered out to Mike ” Run to the store and get me something to bake into these cinnamon buns. Anything. Just buy it.”

He came back with Turtles.

Mmm mmm mmm…. I love Turtles!

Ha. Now it’s totally in your head. You’re welcome.

It is SO easy to make a giant cinnamon bun in a skillet folks, I wonder why I have never done this before!

You simply take all of the rolls out of the package and link them together, like shown below. You wind and wind the dough around and voila!

You end up with this! You can wind in the turtles pieces, or whatever has struck your fancy at the moment. Remember my Oreo cinnamon buns? Let’s just say those would be absolutely amazing as a giant cinnamon bun. I might have to create that next!

Oh em gee you guys. I mean, look at this. Yowza. I didn’t want to share.

Oh, but I did share and everyone was duly impressed. The kids were salivating over this one before I even made it. While I did make this camping, I made it in the oven, so there is no reason that you can’t make it at home. Heck, it’s even better at home, a nice, quick, easy dessert!

This might just be the wrap up of my camping posts….I don’t think I have many or any left to write!

Well, let’s get on to Fall recipes now, shall we?

Love you more than summer,

    8 or 9 inch skillet and if it’s properly seasoned, then it’s already nicely oiled!
