(about 1-1/2 minutes in microwave or 4 minutes in a saucepan on medium heat). Pour milk mixture into a large mixing bowl and add sugar, sour cream, salt, and oat bran hot cereal. Let this mixture sit for 5 minutes to soften oat bran hot cereal. Add egg, mashed banana, and softened yeast. Mix well (you may use a mixer).

Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, 10 minutes by hand or 4 minutes in an electric mixer or food processor fitted with a dough hook. Put dough in oiled bowl, turning once to coat thoroughly. Cover with a damp cloth and allow to rise in a warm, draft-free place until doubled, about 1 hour.

  • Knead down dough and turn it onto a lightly floured surface. Divide dough in half and allow to rest for 10 minutes.
  • Roll out half of the dough into a rectangle 15 x 10 inches, brush with 1 tablespoon butter and sprinkle filling over the dough. Roll up like a jelly roll, beginning with the long side. Seal the edge. Cut in 1 to 1 1/2 inch slices; put seam side down in greased pans. Use three 8 inch round pans. Cover with a damp cloth and allow to rise in a warm, draft-free place until almost doubled, about 45 minutes. Repeat with other half of dough.
