Cinnamon Roll Recipe With Cream Cheese Icing
The only way I know how to make dough is in my bread machine. I use it to make pizza dough, dough for rolls and most importantly I use it to make the dough for my favorite cinnamon rolls. I made them last week for a Bible Study I attend and they were a hit. This recipe made about 23 cinnamon rolls – so it’s plenty to share with a crowd.
Don’t let all the ingredients scare you. It’s really not that bad since you don’t do it all at once. Let your bread machine do all the work. My machine takes about 90 minutes to mix and rise and about 15 minutes to prepare them and about 20 minutes to bake; so keep that in mind if you plan on baking them to bring them somewhere while they are still warm.
After you make these once, you will probably never make the canned version again 🙂 Here’s the Printable Version of the recipe so it’s easier to make these delicious treats!
- 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
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.)
Start the dough cycle. (Mine takes about 1 ½ hours on the dough cycle.)
When the dough cycle is complete put it on a floured surface.
Preheat oven to 375
Roll out to about 12 x 15 – Baking instructions below after the filling
- ⅓ cup of softened butter (butter is really so much better than margarine)
- ½ cup of brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon of cinnamon
Spread the butter over the dough. I find it easiest to use the back of a spoon.
Mix together the cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle over the butter. Pat it down a little with a spoon or wax paper.
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 23 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.
Place rolls in a rimmed pan. I usually use a 9×13 pan.
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!
