Bread Machine Cinnamon Rolls!

I just got this recipe this morning from Joann one of my Cooking Thursday Participants on my main blog "Diary of a Stay at Home Mom".

I read the recipe and immediately got started, this is going to be the kids after school snack and I bet, I'm going to get thumbs up all around.


Cinnamon Rolls

* 1 cup of warm milk
* 1 egg, beaten
* 1/4 cup of butter, melted
* 3 tbsp warm water
* 1 tsp vanilla
* 3 1/3 cups of flour
* 3/4 tsp salt
* 3 tbsp white sugar
* 2 tsp yeast

Combine the milk, egg, butter, water, and vanilla together and pour into your bread machine pan.


Mix the flour, salt and sugar together then pour on top of the milk mixture.


Make a small hole on top of the flour mixture and pour the yeast into it. Turn your bread machine on to the dough cycle, close the lid and leave alone until your machine beeps at you - mine takes 1 1/2 hours.


Once the dough is done, put it on a floured surface and roll out into a large rectangular shape (about 1/4 inch thick) using a rolling pin. Make sure you have enough flour on the counter so the dough doesn't stick when you roll it out.


* 1 cup of brown sugar
* 4 tsp cinnamon
* 3 tbsp butter, softened

Combine the sugar and cinnamon and mix thoroughly. Spread the softened butter all over the entire surface of the rectangular shaped dough. Next sprinkle the filling over the dough.


Carefully roll up the dough as tightly as you can. If it sticks to the counter, slowly ease the dough up with your fingers - be careful not to tear the dough.

Use a piece of thread to cut the dough. Carefully slide the thread under the dough then cross the thread so it cuts the dough into 1 inch thick pieces.


Place the cut cinnamon rolls into a glass baking dish that is thoroughly coated with butter.


Cover the rolls with a dish towel and set in a warm place for 30 minutes, or until doubled in size.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cook the cinnamon rolls in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until light brown on top - don't overcook.


* 3/4 cup of powdered sugar
* 1/2 tsp vanilla
* 3-4 tsp milk

Combine the ingredients together and mix thoroughly making sure to remove any lumps.

Once the cinnamon rolls are finished baking, remove from the oven and drizzle with the glaze. Serve immediately. Enjoy.


I was able to get two pans out of it, a big one and a smaller round pan.
