My kids love cinnamon buns and I wanted to surprise them with a batch yesterday to cheer them up ~ returning to school after the Christmas holiday is never fun. I liked this recipe because it didn't include an initial rise period. That cut down on prep time substantially, and didn't affect the finished product in the least. I would only change one thing. I would spread softened butter on the rolled rectangle first, and then sprinkle with the cinnamon brown sugar mix. All in all, the rolls were delicious and my three daughters devoured them eagerly. Thanks for posting!
I have the best bread machine money can buy and followed the recipe to a "Tee".... Baked at the proper temp and time. They turned out very light but some what dry. I made a second batch and reduced the baking time to 15 minutes. They were tolerable but not as soft, moist and tasty as one would expect a good cinnamon bun to be.
These are delicious. They're light and airy with just the right amount of cinnamon. This was my first attempt at making cinnamon buns. They were easy to make and came out really well. My three kids devoured them. These are a definite repeat!! Thanks Krusty.
DELICIOUS! Everyone loved them here. One thing I did not like however were the directions, or lack thereof. "Use filling..." ok... but how is it prepared? I took a wild guess and mixed the filling ingredients in a bowl and then spooned that over the dough. But it could be easily taken as spread butter, than spoon brown sugar then cinnamon on top of the dough. That was what I thought I had to do but decided instead to mix it up together. Same for the glaze. Two or three spoons of milk... why two or three? What texture are we looking for? I made it a caramel cream-like texture and thickness. I never made buns before so I really dislike when recipes just assume you know what to do! But that being said, they were WONDERFUL, fluffy, tasty, sweet (but not too sweet), and the smell in the house...exquisite! I made the dough and rolled up the buns the night before and I let the whole thing rest in my (unheated) oven overnight. I baked them this morning. What a way to start a Sunday! Thank you for this great recipe.
I have tried several recipes for cinnamon rolls but never found one I really liked until now. My rolls were fluffy and soft even though I did overbake them a bit. I put them in the oven at 350 for 25 minutes then went outside to help my husband. When I came back in I still had a couple of minutes left on the timer but the rolls were darker on the top than they should have been. Also, I didn't worry about putting the ingredients in the pan in any certain order - I just threw things in as I got them out. I didn't use the frosting recipe as I had a bunch of canned frosting to use up. Also when the rolls came out of the oven I did rub them with butter to make the overbaked tops a bit softer.
Fabulous recipe! Did not ice as these are deliciously sweet,on their own. Highly recommend bAsed on ease and taste. Enjoy!
These were very good cinnamon buns, however am I the only one who wondered what setting on the bread machine to use, "sweet," or dough, etc. There was no mention of leaving them in the bread maker, or when to take them out! After putting them in the machine,, what do you do? I put them on 'sweet' mode, but that was a lucky guess. Please add this step to your instructions.<br/><br/>They were very good! Gayle
Needed a little more flour but was great on my first try. Made them Christmas morning. A big hit.
