Homemade Cinnamon Rolls with Amarula


Homemade Cinnamon Rolls with Amarula with freshly brewed coffee are just perfect for an Easter breakfast or brunch. Hot off the press, or shall I say off out the oven. Either way, you have to try it.

Amarula

I had the idea for these Homemade Cinnamon Rolls with Amarula since I was given a bottle. The internet is flooded with recipes for Cinnamon Rolls, but I bet this is one of a few with Amarula Liqueur, if not the only one. It seems as if the whole world is baking bread at the moment. I can think of nothing more intoxicating than the smell of freshly baked bread. So, yes, I have baked a few too this last week, but felt it was time to ring the changes with these cinnamon rolls. Also, hubby has a sweet tooth.
