I've been eyeing these cake mix rolls on Mommy's Kitchen for quite some time now. Rolls out of a cake mix... I knew I had to try them. Tonight I finally made them. I used half of the dough for crescent shaped rolls and the other half for cinnamon rolls. Brad was on his second one when I asked him if the rolls were good. He said ya. I asked if they tasted sweet. No, he didn't think so. Then I told him what they were made out of. He was suprised (well, kind of because he never knows what I will try to feed him!). Everyone thought they were really good. They were also pretty simple to make. You need to try these rolls out for yourself. You won't be disappointed. They also make great conversation :)

Dissolve yeast in warm water and let stand until creamy (about 10 minutes). Stir in cake mix and flour and mix until smooth. Knead dough on flour covered counter until not sticky.
