Cinnamon Rolls


When visiting my friend Latha during the Christmas Holidays, we wanted to try out a few new recipes and she had picked this rather popular 'Clone of a Cinnabon' recipe from the Allrecipes website. Since she has a bread machine this was so easy to put together.. we just had to dump everything into it and watched while it worked it's way around the dough and we had a smooth and perfect looking dough when it was all done - pretty neat. We then filled, rolled, put in pans and when risen, refrigerated it.... We pulled them out the next morning, thawed for a bit and then baked them off for a glorious breakfast!

We halved the recipe and made a few modifications along the way.. For tips on how to do this without a bread machine, please refer to the the original recipe which has several detailed user comments that explain this.

CINNAMON ROLLS (Like Cinnabon)


Ingredients:
Warm Milk (110 degrees F) - 1/2 cup
Egg - 1, at room temperature
Margarine - 2 tbsp + 2 tsp, melted
Bread Flour - 2 and quarter cups
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Sugar - 1/4 cup
Bread Machine Yeast - 1 and quarter tsp


For the Filling
Brown Sugar - 1/2 cup, packed
Ground Cinnamon - 1 tbsp
Butter - 2 tbsp, softened

For the Glazed Topping
Light Cream cheese - 2 to 3 oz, softened
Butter - 1 tbsp, softened
Confectioners' sugar - 1/2 cup or to taste
Vanilla extract - 1/4 tsp
Salt - a tiny pinch

Method:
1) Place ingredients in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select dough cycle; press Start.

2) After the dough has doubled in size turn it out onto a lightly floured surface, cover and let rest for 10 minutes.

3) Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon.

4) Roll dough into a 15x12 inch rectangle. Spread dough with melted butter (reserved for filling) and sprinkle evenly with sugar/cinnamon mixture. Roll up dough and cut into 1.5 inch rolls.

5) Place rolls in a lightly greased baking pan. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes. We actually covered it with clear wrap & refrigerated it at this point since we made this the previous evening and finished the rest of the process the following morning so we'd have fresh baked rolls with hardly any effort.

6) When ready, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Bake rolls in preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes.

7) While rolls are baking, beat together cream cheese, butter, confectioners' sugar, vanilla extract and salt. Spread frosting on warm rolls before serving.

  3. Looks so good, since we grab a few when we visit the airport, little one thinks that is the only place she get those and wants to visit the airport. I am not bold enough to try this one yet.

  23. That looks so good! I had Cinnabons in the US a few years ago - the taste is so fresh in my memory even now. Love the ooey-gooey look of your creation. As Indo said, I think I ate most of my Cinnabons in the airports there.

  32. Thank you all.. it was sinfully good and definitely not for the weight conscious but as a once in a while indulgence it's definitely welcome.

    Like most others, we've tasted this during our visits to the airport - actually we favour the pecan bon. This and jalapeno pretzels from aunt annes is something that always reminds me of airports :)
