Giant Cinnamon Roll

Giant Cinnamon Roll

This roll is on a huge pizza pan (you know, the size an extra large pizza used to be in the 1980s?).  I started out to make a big ring, but as the recipe went on, I realized that I would have a ring the size of a hula hoop.  That didn’t seem feasible.

So I started to coil the dough.  And coiled and coiled and coiled.   This finished baby ended up about 15 inches across.  It made a lovely dessert (although some of my sons were hoping I’d save it for breakfast).  I am thinking that a honey based filling and glaze would be kind of fun…like a giant honey bun.
