For the Dough:

1 package A Tavola Together Focaccia Mix – Raisin, Chocolate Chip or Original

1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup club soda or sparkling water

1/2 cup butter, softened, divided

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 teaspoons cinnamon

8" baking pan

Additional flour for dusting

For the Frosting:

1/4 cup white chocolate chips

1 teaspoon milk

1/2 cup powdered sugar


Prepare the Dough:

Pour contents of Focaccia Mix – into a medium sized mixing bowl. Add milk and club soda/sparkling water. Stir with a fork, wooden spoon or with your hands until the liquid is absorbed and you have a ball of dough…. about 1 minute.

Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let rest at room temperature for 3 to 10 hours.

Remove plastic and transfer dough to a lightly floured work surface.

Roll dough to make a rectangle – about 8 x 12 inches.

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Coat baking pan with ¼ cup softened butter.

Spread remaining ¼ cup butter evenly on dough.

Sprinkle brown sugar, then cinnamon evenly on dough.

(If using Original Variety then add 1/2 cup of raisins or chocolate chips.)

Starting from the long side, roll the dough jelly roll fashion into a log shape.

Slice into 8 to 12 pieces.

Place in greased baking pan and let rise at room temperature 1 hour.

Bake for 15- 18 minutes or until done.

Prepare the Frosting:

Melt white chocolate chips with milk…stir in powdered sugar…swirl on warm rolls!
