After many flopped attempts, I was so excited last week to finally find a delicious recipe for Bread Machine Cinnamon Rolls. Not only were they simple to do–they probably took me a total of 20 minutes of effort to pull off (which is much less than my by-hand recipe!)–but they were a huge hit at our house.
I will most definitely be making these over and over again. In fact, I don’t think my husband would mind at all if I made them everyday. But seeing as I doubt we really need that many calories, we’re going to save them for our Saturday breakfasts.
Here’s the yummy recipe so you can try making them, too:
Bread Machine Cinnamon Rolls
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons warm milk
3 tablespoons oil
1 egg, lightly beaten plus 2 egg whites
1/2 cup sugar
4 cups flour (Add a bit more if dough seems too wet after first few minutes of kneading in the bread machine.)
1 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons yeast
Filling (I doubled this since we like our filling, oh yes we do!):
2 tablespoons butter
2/3 cup brown sugar mixed with 1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon milk
1 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
4 tablespoons (or less) butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
Put the dough ingredients in the bread machine in the order listed and run on the dough cycle. After the dough cycle is finished, roll the dough into a large rectangle and spread it with 2 Tablespoons melted butter and 2/3 cup brown sugar mixed with 1 Tablespoon cinnamon.
Roll up and cut into 10-15 rolls and place in two greased round cake pans. Bake at 325 degrees for 20 minutes or until browned. Spread the icing on as soon as they come out of the oven.
You can also cover the unbaked rolls with plastic wrap, stick them in the refrigerator overnight, and then bake in the morning.
We baked both pans, ate one pan, and froze the other. We were planning to use the second pan for this Saturday’s breakfast. But, ahem, it lasted all of one day in the freezer. I promise I wasn’t the sole one responsible for that, though.
Many thanks to reader, Sarah, who emailed this recipe to me. It’s a keeper!
