My daughter came home from school last week with a book that she checked out from the library and to my surprise it was a cookbook (needless to say, I was thrilled!). After carefully looking through the book, she said she wanted to make the cinnamon rolls with me. After looking at the recipe for the cinnamon rolls, I decided to adapt it quite a bit to work with the ingredients we had on hand and also to work with our bread making machine. My daughter helped me every step of the way and she was so proud and thrilled with the end result. They were a big hit with my entire family…I was still not feeling well so I didn’t eat one but the small bite I had was delicious. The whole pan was gone within two days.Cinnamon Rolls: Adapted recipe and photos by For the Love of Cooking.net Recipe inspired by Baking Kids Love by Sur La Table
- 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 bowl 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.
Place the cut cinnamon rolls into a glass baking dish that is thoroughly coated with butter.
- 3/4 cup of powdered sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 3-4 tsp milk
