ILP Caramel Rolls

In My home town of Rapid City we have a restaurant called the Colonial House, and it seriously has the best caramel rolls I have ever eaten. I was discussing this with my room mate a few days ago and we decided we anted to try and make some caramel rolls. My roommate had a recipe we used and it made it really simple but at the same time they weren’t exactly “real” caramel rolls. We took some hamburger buns and and added the caramel and nuts then let them bake on in the oven. They were a good snack but nothing like the real caramel rolls at the Colonial house. I currently have a friends that works in their bakery and for this ILP I interviews him about his job and maybe a little in site on how to make better caramel rolls.

First off ill start off by introducing my friend Forest who is one of the few works that get sup at 4 in the morning to begin his job as baker. They make many goodies and treat at the colonial house and we can pretty much compare this restaurant to a family owned Perkins. They make pies, cookies, muffins, and many other types of desserts, but nothing is as good as their caramel roll. They use walk in sized oven, as well as a large area to prep their dough and other goods before putting them into the giant oven. Forest talked about how the caramel roll was definite the product with the most attention in the morning, as well as to-go orders they would do daily as well.

Forest was very helpful and even did manage to give me a few helpful tips on how to improve my own caramel rolls, but he could not give me any type of recipe to follow because of his jobs orders. I complete understood considering the circumstances!

I mention in one of my earlier post I had worked in a cookie shop so i do have some experience in large quantity of baking but noting compared to the scale of what happens at the colonial house. When all is said and done I just made cookies and this restaurant does cookies plus 15 other baked goods, so even though I have some experience I have nothing compared to my good friend Forest. Im also starting to run out of ideas on products to bake so if anyone has anything they would like to see me bake just let me know in the comments.

  1. See now indeed to fine a way to get to Rapid City to try these rolls! I like the work you did on your ILP this week. If I had a suggestion of things to bake… maybe try bread? It’s finicky but there’s nothing better than fresh bread.
