A fantastic cinnamon roll recipe that my Husband asks me to make again and again so he can take it to work for his coworkers. I get about 24 large rolls from this yield. The dough looks a little sticky at first, but if you keep a healthy amount of flour close and keep adding as needed through the 5 minute knead, it firms up beautifully. Another reviewer suggested the cream cheese frosting, and I won't ice them with anything else...it really makes them bakery quality. To repeat the posted frosting recipe, it's : 1/2 cup butter, softened 8 ounces cream cheese 4 cups confectioners' sugar 2 teaspoons vanilla extract Directions 1 Beat softened butter and cream cheese until well blended. 2 Add powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat until creamy. Makes 2 Cups.
TERRIBLE!!!!!!!!!! Tastes like cake....This recipe sucks!!
Heavenly! These rise very slowly in the refrigerator, so you can make them say, in the afternoon, put a pan in the fridge, and bake them the next morning. I'm so happy not to have to slave away in the kitchen at 10:00 the night before!
I made this for Christmas Breakfast, and it was a real hit with the family - light and fluffy, even 3 days later! The author just needs to adjust the amount of suggested flour! (or reduce the amount of water), depending on the quantity of rolls you want. Instead of the 6 c., add 9 c all-purpose flour, and 1 c. more to your desired consistency. The important thing to remember, is NOT to add additional flour after the first rise (dough should be slightly sticky for the light and fluffy part), as flour added in later doesn't mix in well and the result is dry and 'floury'. Also to knead and even 'throw' the dough down on the counter repeatedy, until dough is elastic. Dough took 2 hours to rise, so there is no way it can rise double in 45 minutes. A final recommendation is to bake the rolls only 20 minutes! and anything further creates a dried out pastry that won't be light and fluffy.
These cinnamon buns were awesome. It made a lot more, It made 45 huge cinnamon buns. I opted to make the cream cheese icing as suggested and they were better than Cinnabons. Actually we are having a Christmas Shop at church next week and I've been asked to make these to sell !!!! Great job and thank you for sharing !!!!
These are great!I made them in afternoon, refrigerated overnight and made these excellent cinnamon rolls in morning.
Wow! Highly recommended. Easy and very tasty. I used equal parts of brown and white sugar, also doubled the amount recommemded, to make them super sticky!
Family told me this was a "grand slam". Can't do better than that. One adjustment. Don't know how these could be made with only 2 Tbsp. sugar in the filling. I used lots (about 1 cup) of brown sugar, mixed in the cinnamon and then followed the directions. Superb. The cake mix is the secret ingredient.
