DIRECTIONS

  • In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water.
  • Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
  • In a large bowl, combine the yeast mixture with the cake mix and 3 cups of the flour; stir to combine.
  • Add the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring well after each addition.
  • When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes.
  • Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil.
  • Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 30 minutes.
  • Deflate the dough and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface.
  • Roll the dough into a 10x16" rectangle.
  • spread the softened butter over the rectangle; sprinkle on brown sugar and cinnamon (and raisins if desired).
  • Starting from one of the long sides, roll up the rectangle and cut into 1" wide rolls.
  • Preheat oven to 375F.
  • Grease a 9x13" baking pan.
  • Pour the melted butter into a small bowl and mix the white sugar (and pecans if desired) in another small bowl.
  • Dip the top of each roll in the melted butter, then in the sugar and pecan mixture, then place the topped rolls snugly into the prepared pan.
  • Cover the rolls with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled in volume, about 30 minutes.
  • Bake at 375F for 20 minutes, or until rolls are golden.
