Recipe provided by Kitchen McCabe


  • 3⁄4 cup whole milk
  • 1⁄3 cup honey
  • 1⁄2 cup butter, softened, divided
  • 1 box (about 4-1⁄2 cups) Kodiak Buttermilk Power Cakes Flapjack & Waffle Mix, divided 
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon instant yeast
  • 3⁄4 cup warm water
  • All-purpose flour, for dusting 


  1. Place the milk, honey, and 1⁄4 cup of the butter (half a stick) in a small saucepan. Heat on medium high until butter is melted.
  2. Pour the mixture into the bowl of a stand mixer. Add one and a half cups of the Kodiak Power Cakes mix, along with the egg and salt. Mix with a dough hook on low speed for 5 minutes to help the mixture cool slightly.
  3. Add the yeast to a small bowl along with a pinch of sugar. Pour the warm water in, stir once, and let yeast sit for 5 minutes, until bubbly. 
  4. Add the yeast mixture to the dough, along with 3 more cups of the Power Cakes mix.
  5. Mix on low speed until a slightly sticky dough forms.
  6. Grease a mixing bowl and place dough inside of it. Cover with a towel and let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk – 30 to 60 minutes.
  7. Cover a rolling surface with flour. Flip the dough out of the bowl onto the floured surface and divide in half. 
  8. Roll one half out into a circle about 10” in diameter. Spread circle with half of the remaining softened butter.
  9. Cut the circle into 6 triangles and roll up each triangle starting with the widest end to smallest end. Place on a greased baking sheet, seam side down, 3 rolls to a row. Repeat with remaining dough and butter. *Tip: Each dough circle can be cut into 12 triangles each for a total of 24 small rolls, if desired. 
  10. Cover the baking sheet with a kitchen towel and let rolls rise until doubled in size — 30-60 minutes.
  11. Bake at 350° F for 8-10 minutes, or until just lightly golden on top. Remove and brush with melted butter, if desired. 
  12. Store in an airtight container.
