Perfect Homemade Cinnamon Rolls #dessert #cinnamonrolls

Well, homemade cinnamon rolls have been on my list of things to make for some time. I have wanted to make them for quite some time, but I am a little weary of yeast-based bread. We do regularly make pizza crust, so I am not quite sure why I have this hesitation. Nonetheless, I still had not attempted homemade cinnamon rolls.

The recipe makes a full 9×13 pan of rolls. They do turn out huge! Enjoy!

You’ll Need:

  • 1 c. warm milk (110 degrees F)
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1/3 c. margarine, melted
  • 4-1/2 c. bread flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 c. white sugar
  • 2-1/2 tsp. (1 pkg.) yeast
  • 1 c. brown sugar, packed
  • 2-1/2 Tbsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 c. butter, softened
  • Frosting:
  • 6 Tbsp. butter, softened
  • 4 Tbsp. heavy cream
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract (I also used maple extract)
  • 2 c. powdered sugar


  1. Place first 7 ingredients in the pan of a bread machine. Select the dough cycle and press start. The dough can also be made by hand using steps found on
  2. After the dough cycle is finished, turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Let rest for 5-10 minutes. Meanwhile, ina small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon. Roll dough into a 16×21 inch rectangle. Spread dough with 1/3 c. softened butter and with cinnamon-sugar mixutre. Roll up dough tightly and cut into 12 rolls. Place rolls in a lightly greased 9×13-inch pan. Cover and set in the refrigerator overnight.
  3. In the morning, let rolls rest at room temperature for 30-45 mintues. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. After resting, bake rolls at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. While rolls are baking combine frosting ingredients. Spread frosting on warm rolls before seving.
