I have tried a few different recipes for cinnamon rolls and they were ok. I had trouble finding the one that was something I would want to make again. You know, the wow factor. Then I was discussing this with a friend of mine during a summer wiffle ball game. Turns out she has a great recipe. I’m skeptical but I figure I will give it a shot. Really I just figured the only good way to get a good cinnamon roll was to go buy them pre made at the store. Oh boy was I ever wrong! These are just fantastic. Nothing but good things to say about these delicious beauties! Here is the recipe.
1 fourth cup melted butter
1 fourth cup water
1 cup of milk
2 tablespoons of sugar
half a package of instant vanilla pudding
teaspoon of salt
4 cups of bread flour
2 and 1 half teaspoons of yeast
Add to bread machine and set to dough cycle. When done roll out (I cut my dough into 2 pieces and work from there) and smear with butter then put brown sugar on the dough and sprinkle with cinnamon. Slice into strips with a pizza cutter with your desired thickness and roll. They do not need to rise again, but sometimes I let them rise just a bit more to make them nice and puffy. Bake at 350. Frost with cream cheese frosting while still warm and ENJOY!
I’ll be honest. I have never actually timed how long it takes for these to bake. I just go by smell and my nose never lies! I would guess it’s about 35-40 minutes. My pictures in no way to them justice, but I really don’t get much time to snap pictures. They are gobbled up very quickly.
