Bread Machine Cinnamon Rolls

 This Cinnamon Roll Recipe is amazingly delicious and practically fail-proof! You can even make the dough in the bread machine! It's SO easy!!

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:

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!

    I made these on Friday…they were excellent!! Thanks so much for the recipe!

  • Christine M says:

    These were the best cinnamon rolls ever! Who needs Cinnabon when you can make these. When I took the dough out and felt how soft and fluffy it felt I just knew these were gonna be good. I think the next time I make them I won’t double the filling =). Thank you so much for sharing this recipe (although the scale and my clothes aren’t as appreciative as I am =)).

  • Heather says:

    Crystal, I made these yesterday and refrigerated them until this morning. They were absolutely delicious and tasted like expensive gourmet cinnamon rolls! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. It is a keeper! For the other readers out there: I used powdered milk and half whole wheat flour and they couldn’t have tasted any better.

  • Jenny says:

    Thanks for sharing the recipe. I made these for my family, and they were fabulous!

  • Rachel says:

    I made these a few weeks ago and they are AWESOME!!! I have never made homemade cinnamon rolls before, and they turned out so good. It made 24 big rolls and we ate half and froze half. They are just as good if not better out of the freezer. I just stick them in the microwave for 15 sec or so and they’re ready to eat in a flash. I did double the filling, which was really good. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!!!

  • Kim says:

    I finally got around to making these and they were wonderful, didn’t last long around here though. I recently found a recipe for Oat rolls on The Happy Clipper blog. I will be trying it soon, since I recently stocked up on Quaker Oats and everyone knows that oats are healthy .

  • A. H. says:

    Thank you for posting this recipe. We do love our bread around here! I gave my bread machine away to a friend as it was too bulky and I needed shelve space. I make homemade pizza crust and dinner rolls using my KitchenAid mixer and dough hook. It works beautifully! Thank you for the freezing idea!

  • Brenda says:

    Cinnamon rolls look delicious!!!
    Could you please tell me how to make them gluten free as we have celiac. Thanks

    • Laura Z says:

      Not sure if you ever got an answer to this, but if you have Silvana Nardone’s book “Cooking for Isaiah” there is a gluten free flour recipe that works wonderfully for baking.

    • Beth Rose says:

      I haven’t tried it in this recipe yet, but Bob’s Red Mill gluten free 1 to 1 flour substitutes well in most baked goods. Just keep an eye on the moisture level! I got a decent deal on Amazon.

  • Rachel says:

    What would be the best way to freeze these cinnamon rolls?

  • Gretchen says:

    Oh this is a keeper! So easy and delicious. I’m going to be making these a lot. Thanks.

  • Lauren says:

    This is my go-to cinnamon roll recipe. I make it often for our family and others, and it is awesome! 🙂 Thank you, thank you!

  • Hanna says:

    What type of flour should I use ?

  • Cheryll says:

    Hi, These look easy and delish. My breadmachine only takes 3 cups flour. Do you know how to convert the recipe? Please help. Thanks.

  • Dianne says:

    Do these not have to rise before they bake?

  • Megan says:

    Can you freeze these before baking?

    • Carla says:

      I am hoping to hear the answer to this, as well! They did great when refridgerated overnight before baking, but I would like to make several batches and freeze before baking for quick mornings. This is our go-to recipe. Amazing.

      • Christine says:

        Yes! Just proceed with all the steps just prior to placing in oven. Thaw them in the fridge overnight or on your counter for an hour or two and then proceed with baking directions.

  • kris says:

    I made 2 batches of these, one for now, one for Christmas morning, and yes, we did die and go to cinnamon roll heaven. I substituted buttermilk for the milk and it was awesome. I made it into a cinnamon roll wreath that I saw on Pinterst and it was perfect for that. Next time I would spray the parchment with PAM because there was a sticking issue; also use a non lipped cookie sheet, it is way easier to get off for serving. This is a real keeper for the bread machine! Thanks!

  • Rachel says:

    The dough rose up and completely filled my bread machine. It seems very fluffy. One thing I was uncertain of was how thin to roll out the dough and how wide to make the strips. That would have been helpful for an inexperienced cinnamon roll maker like myself. I just winged it. They’re in the oven now. Can’t wait!

  • Patti says:

    Can I make this same recipe with my mixer??? I don’t have a bread machine because of all the reasons you didn’t like the baked in the bread machine bread!

  • Jacqueline says:

    Omg!!! I just made these and they are absolutely delicious!! Pintrest win!!! Thanks so much! This is 100% a keeper and go to!

  • Snowball says:

    I’ve made these and they are great thank you

  • Kim b says:

    This recipe is great thanks we love them.

  • Linda J. says:

    I just tried this recipe. It was incredible. The best thing I’ve tried with my bread maker yet.

  • Anne says:

    I made half with your cinnamon roll filling and half with the cinnamon rool filling with chopped walnuts and sultanas amazing!

  • Frankie says:

    what brand/kind bread maker are you using?

  • Melissa says:

    Want an answere to the question about letting them rise before baking. Never heard if not doing that.

    • Kimberly says:

      I’ve made these bunches and I don’t let them rise before baking and they come out beautifully and delicious every time. My family absolutely loves them. I do use bread flour, but other than that I follow the recipe exactly. Hope this helped! 🙂

  • Shirley A Kase says:

    I make these often since I found the recipe back in 2014 and I am not sure why I never commented. It is very good. When my kids start to beg for Cinabons (which are too expensive anymore) I always pull it back up and make them again and everyone is happy! Every Christmas morning I make these as our breakfast too. I do double the icing.

  • Georgina Budney says:

    I made this recipe last night. So easy and oh so good. All 16 buns are wiped out already. They are packed with flavor. Used my air fryer to cook. Will be trying more of your recipes. Thanks!
