Homemade Cinnamon Rolls for breakfast....

What can I say? My family loves cinnamon rolls. I make a ton and we usually eat them for desserts too. These rock. I make them often. They are a little time consuming. I usually make them at night. Let them rise and then put them in the fridge. In the morning I wake up and throw them in the oven. So simple. The best smell ever waking up in the morning.

Cinnamon Rolls

1 egg, room temp.
1 cp. hot water
1/4 cp. oil
1/3 cp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
3 1/2 cp. bread flout
1 1/2 tsp. active yeast

1. I add this in a bread machine. In this order. If I did not have a bread machine I would probably put it in my food processor until formed into a ball and then let it rise for an hour.
2. Now this is where you roll it out and add all the goodies
1 stick of butter at rm. temp
1/2 cp. white sugar
1/2 cp. brown sugar
2 TB. cinnamon

3. Roll the dough out in a long rectangle. Add half of the butter. Then top with the sugars and cinnamon. Then begin to roll it like a jelly roll. As I roll it I add a little butter to the other side with the other half of the butter.
4. When finished rolling the cinnamon roll start cutting into about 1-2 inches thick. Put on a greased baking sheet.
5. Let the dough rise another hr. until it is doubled in size.
6. Ready to bake. 350. for about 15-20 minutes. I like mine a little soft in the middle.


I just add 2 1/2 cps. powdered sugar, 2 TB milk, 1 tsp. vanilla. ( You can add cream cheese too. But my husband prefers no cream cheese. It is yummy, though)

Finished Product.....Enjoy!!!!


  1. My only problem with cinnamon rolls is I do usually end up eating them for dessert because they take so long when I want to eat them for breakfast! These look amazing.

  2. I like your idea of baking them in the morning.
    I will try it next time I bake rolls.

    Thanks and have a nice weekend.

  3. I love cinnamon rolls, too! These look awesome. Now that I'm going to have a little more counter space, maybe I'll finally make them myself! Yummy...

  4. It's my favorite treat..thanks for the recipe

  5. Wait? I can do this without hitting the tin on the counter and taking them out? LOL

    Look fantastic. I have linked you over at MANGIA Y'ALL

  6. They look so cinnamon rolls!

  7. Cinnamon Rolls? Pizza?....and its homemade AND you use a bread machine? Are you my twin? lol..gotta love it! How did you come upon my site? I am so glad there are other stay at home mommies that love to make things homemade! (so many claim to not have the time)
    I will be keeping my eye on you!

  8. I am 28 as well. Creepy. But I love it! I too hate it when someone says they don't have time. I make time darn it! My stepkids grew up on boxed crap. Also, because I make things homemade we have things we normally couldn't afford if we just went out and bought it. That is pretty cool. I have two little girls ages 2 years and one is 9 months. I hope to teach them how to cook and bake. For me cooking is a passion. My family appreciates it. When the dinner table is silent you know it is good!

    We will keep in touch!



Thank you so much for letting me know how you feel about my dishes.
