Well....all of you are probably wondering what in the heck easy Skyrim sweet rolls are, huh? Believe me, I had no clue until I did my research. Sweet Rolls that came to life right out the of the video game, The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim. Yes, you heard me right, a sweet roll recipe right out of a video game.
Let me tell you, these rolls are STUPENDOUS! A warm, moist roll baked in a mini bundt pan and then drizzled with white glaze. Simple to make and easy to eat! The perfect breakfast food or even after dinner snack.
I have absolutely no ties to these rolls and can't really tell you how I stumbled upon the recipe, but I am glad I did. Being a gamer is definitely not in my genes, so I had no clue they were inspired by a video game.
As aforementioned, the sweet rolls were inspired from the 2011 breakout hit video game Skyrim: The Elder Scrolls. Found in taverns, inns, and other areas throughout the game as a food source for the characters.
There are many variations to the sweet rolls found on the internet. However, the original recipe used is from the The Elder Scrolls: "The official cookbook" by Chelsea Monroe-Cassel. I used a more simplified recipe version and they came out great!
- Unsalted butter
- All-purpose flour
- Granulated Sugar
- Heavy cream
- Confectioner's Sugar
Step by step instructions
These rolls are simple to make and can be whipped up in about 45 minutes total from start to finish.
First, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease the mini bundt pan with non-stick spray and set aside.
Second in a bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar for 5 minutes until super light and fluffy. Add in one egg at a time, beating well after each addition. Next, add in the heavy cream and mix until blended.
Third, add in the flour, baking powder, salt, and vanilla extract and beat gently until just combined. Pour batter into greased mini bundt pan. Bake for 20 minutes or until the bottom edges are golden brown.
Lastly, when they are done let them cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack to complete cooling. While they are cooling melt and mix all the ingredients for the white glaze. Drizzle over the cooled sweet rolls. Serve and enjoy!
Variations and substitutions
- This batter can be used to make cupcakes and add buttercream frosting.
- Add in some walnuts or pecans to the top of within the rolls.
- Add fresh fruit such as strawberries, raspberries, or blueberries on top.
- Make sure to grease your mini bundt pan as these rolls will stick to the pan and not come out as easily.
- Milk can be substituted for heavy cream
- If you mix the granulated sugar and butter together for at least 5 minutes, you will not need to add the baking powder for a rising agent.
Best served right away, but if placed in an airtight container they will last 3 days at room temperature.
