READY IN: 2hrs 50mins
Recipe by Zewbiedoo

The bread machine makes these rolls easy! I usually make them at night and refrigerate them to bake for the next day's breakfast. Adapted from Betty Crocker's Bread Machine Cookbook. Prep time listed includes the dough mixing time and rising time.

I just made these and they're tasty. Mostly, I'm surprised by how PERFECT the directions are. Usually, you have to tweak or go by instinct with a recipe but this one is SPOT ON in terms of timing and quantities.

The only thing I didn't like was the frosting, WOW was it thick and powerfully sweet, but that's just a matter of taste, I suspect.

One note for rookie bakers: when the dough comes out of the bread machine, the gluten has seized from kneading. I couldn't figure out why the dough wouldn't roll out for me, it would just spring back into a ball. I looked it up and let it rest for 30-40minutes and I was able to roll it out just fine when I came back. FYI!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place water, 2 Tablespoons butter, bread flour, 1/4 cup white granulated sugar, salt and yeast in the bread machine and start on dough cycle.
  2. Once dough is complete, roll out into a 9" square on a lightly floured surface.
  3. Mix 1/3 cup sugar and 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon together (I mix it in a measuring cup).
  4. Spread 2 Tablespoons softened margarine over the dough and sprinkle with the cinnamon mixture.
  5. Roll up tightly into a log and pinch the edges to seal.
  6. Cut into 1" slices and place in a greased 9"x9"x2" square pan (brownie pan).
  7. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rise 1 hour or so until double, OR in refrigerator overnight if making for breakfast.
  8. Preheat oven to 375°F and bake 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  9. Mix powdered sugar, vanilla and milk to make glaze, drizzle over rolls and serve warm.
