brown sugar, packed
This is really a "no brainer" recipe! I was glad this one didn't explicitly mention using a bread machine. These were easy and delicious. I topped them off with a cream cheese icing. (1 1/2 cups powdered sugar, 1/2 cup softened margarine, 2 oz cream cheese, 1/2 teas vanilla, and 1/8 teas salt) YUM!
***BAKE WITH CAUTION- MY OVEN CAUGHT FIRE WITH THIS METHOD OF MAKING CINNAMON ROLLS*** I thought it was clever that these cinnamon rolls are actually made in muffin tins- but it turned out volatile. The sugar and butter mixture bubbles up and oozes out of these as they bake and rise in the oven; so much so that it oozed all over the oven bottom and caused an oven fire in my home. These would be fantastic, but the instructions should be in bold face: YOU MUST PLACE A LARGE COOKIE SHEET UNDER THE MUFFIN PAN TO CATCH THE DRIPPINGS.
Please, anyone trying this recipe, note this and do this to avoid any fires in your kitchen.
Very easy and really took only 90 minutes! I tried them both with muffin pans and in an 11 inch square pan. I liked them better in the square pan, they were not as dry but they took longer to cook (about 30-35 minutes instead of 20).
The reviews say it all - this is an easy, delicious cinnamon roll recipe! Only thing I did differently was to melt extra butter, sugar and cinnamon to pour on top of the cinnamon rolls just before baking. They turned out very soft, sweet and gooey. Thanks for a great recipe!!
VERY GOOD RECIPE,LIKED THEM BETTER WHEN I USED A 9X13 PAN. I LIKED THE FACT THAT YOU DIDN'T HAVE TO USE A BREAD MACHINE. I HAVE MADE THESE SEVERAL TIMES AND THEY WERE EXCELLANT EACH TIME!!!! THANK'S
I had to write a review because I don't know when I've been more pleased with the results of a recipe! Soft, tender, delicious cinnamon rolls in half the time of standard recipes. I added chopped walnuts with the raisins, cooked the rolls in a 9x13 inch pan instead of in muffin cups, and topped them with cream cheese frosting and they were just delicious.
So delicious! Be sure to put another tray underneath the muffin tins though - the yummy gooey cinnamon and sugar mixture bubbles up and out. :-D Soft and fluffy.
So it took a little bit longer than 90 mins, but who cares...The end result was worth it. I'd been searching for a cinnabun recipe where a bread machine was not required and this was perfect. Having read previous comments I decided to bake in a 13 by 9 pan and they came out fantastic. I do not kid when I say they were gone in 10 mins. By the way, I slathered cream cheese frosting over the buns making it all the more SINFUL.... Thanks Debbie!
