Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnamon Rolls

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:


  • 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

How to Make Cinnamon Rolls with a Bread Machine

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.

Cinnamon Rolls


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

Cinnamon Rolls

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.

Cinnamon RollsUse 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.
