Sharing is caring!

I have not been so good about getting a new recipe up on Flashback Friday – so I thought I would share one of my most popular recipes. This has to be one of my favorite recipes – bread machine cinnamon rolls! It tastes better than Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls and it is so much cheaper!!

Don’t let all the ingredients scare you off. It is totally worth your time. Your family will love these!

Cinnamon Rolls

  • 1 ¼  cups warm milk (Put in your microwave for about 45 seconds.)
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • ⅓ cup oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons bread machine yeast


  1. Grease bread machine. Place all ingredients in order recommended by your bread machine manufacturer. (I just put them in the bread machine in the order the recipe goes.)
  2. Start the dough cycle. (Mine takes about 1 ½ hours on the dough cycle.)
  3. When the dough cycle is complete put it on a floured surface.
  4. Preheat oven to 375
  5. Roll out to about 12 x 15″

Cinnamon Filling

  • ⅓ cup of softened butter (butter is really so much better than margarine)
  • ½ cup of brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon


  1. Spread the butter over the dough. I find it easiest to use the back of a spoon.
  2. Mix together the cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle over the butter. Pat it down a little with a spoon or wax paper.
  3. Begin to roll it tightly. You will have a long log. Cut into rolls with a knife or floss. I cut them about 2 inches each.

I have made as many as 20 rolls with this dough. If you want to make them in the morning just wrap tightly with plastic wrap and keep the in the refrigerator.

Baking instructions

  1. Place rolls on a cookie sheet.
  2. Bake at 375 for about 20 minutes. (could be less just check it after 15 minutes) Do not over bake because all the filling will come out the bottom and the rolls will be dry.

 Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • ¼  cup butter, softened
  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons milk (you can add more if you want it runnier)
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla

Spread over hot cinnamon rolls and enjoy! You can reheat the cinnamon rolls in the microwave for 15-20 seconds and they will be just as delicious!

I find it easier to refrigerate the dough before rolling out. You get a tighter roll and they are much fluffier

Don't you have to let them rise again after you cut them into rolls? I always had to let rise a second time.

I have never had to let them rise. After you take them out of the bread machine they should be good to go!
