Cinnamon Rolls for the Bread Machine

This recipe comes from my mom!  She’s helping me out while I’m in Florida at SeaWorld!  Thanks Mom!

Dough-2 pound ingredient

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 4 Tbsp. Melted butter
  • 4 Tbsp. water
  • ½ box instant vanilla pudding (3.4 oz box)
  • 4 cups Bread flour
  • 1 Tbsp. Sugar
  • ½ tsp. Salt
  • 2 ½ tsp. Bread machine yeast


  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 1 Cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts, opt.
  • ¼ cup raisins, opt

FROSTING 1 (Real Cinnabon Frosting)

  • 4 oz. Cream cheese, room temp. (With walnuts and raisins)
  • ¼ cup butter, softened (this is awesome)
  • 1 ½ cup powdered sugar
  • ½ tsp. Vanilla
  • 1 ½ tsp. Milk
  • 3 Tbsp. real Maple Sup

FROSTING 2 (not the real thing, but good)

  • 1 tsp. milk
  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • 4 Tbsp. butter, softened
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1½ Tbsp. milk


Place all ingredients in your machine in order recommended by your machine’s manufacturer.
Place the pan in your machine.
Select the dough cycle and press start.
When cycle is finished, remove the dough, knead enough to punch down and roll to 17×10.

Combine first 3 filling ingredients and mix well.
Heat in microwave 10 seconds. To make spreadable.
Spread over rolled out dough with rubber spatula. Get as close to the edges as possible. Sprinkle nuts or raisins over dough.

Starting with widest end, roll the dough into a tight log.
Cut into ½ to 1” slices.
Place in a lightly greased baking dish with sides.

Place in a warm draft free place and allow them to rise until double. (I turn my oven on warm and place them inside. When the temp light goes off, turn off the oven.

Let them rise 20-30 minutes this way. Take out to heat oven to baking temp)

Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes.

When the rolls are done top with frosting of your choice.

Note: for a real treat replace raisins in the fillings with chopped dried cherries, blueberries or strawberries. When doing this use frosting 1 or 2 and add a Tbsp. Of matching fruit jam.

Yield: A Full 9×13 pan

    What if you don’t have a bread machine? Can you
    make it without?? Is a bread machine an automatic
    mixer or does it cook..I thought it cooked it..
    Sorry I am so illiterate…LOL
