Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the yeast mixture with the cake mix, salt and vanilla; stir well to combine. Stir in the flour; beat well. Cover bowl and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour.
  3. Deflate dough and turn it out onto a well floured surface. Roll dough out into a rectangle and spread with butter. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Roll up dough and cut into 3/4 inch thick rolls. Place rolls in two lightly greased 9x13 inch baking pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  5. Bake rolls in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes. While rolls are baking, prepare the frosting. In a medium bowl, stir together confectioners' sugar, 1/3 cup butter, vanilla and milk. Let rolls cool slightly then spread with frosting.

These are the best cinnamon buns we have ever had!! My family cannot get enough. The only adjustments I've made are reducing the flour to 4 cups and doubling the yellow cake mix to 18 oz. This makes the dough a little sweeter. They are to die for. Thanks for the recipe!!!

Everyone gave this one lots of stars but I guess I went wrong somehow with this one. My dough was really sticky so had a rough time rolling it out. I'm thinking maybe the cake mix I picked was too moist. I had to add so much flour to get the dough to roll until I think it too away from the flavor. I don't work with dough/yeast much so hopefully next time I can tweak the recipe and it will come out better.

Great recipe! Made the following changes after reading the reviews... used 2 cup water, the entire pkg. of cake mix; reduced the flour to 4 cups, and increased the vanilla extract to 2 tsps just for added flavor. Recipe turned out great! My family was in awe since this was my very first batch of cinnamon rolls to ever bake that didn't come from a can! I also used Janni's recipe for Cream Cheese Frosting II to top these just because we love cream cheese! Thanks again for a great recipe, this is definitely a keeper!

The prep time was incorrect. Sorry for the misprint.

Very good. Tastes almost as good at the amish cinnamon rolls that are popular here.

These cinnamon rolls were great. I put everything in my bread maker and ran the dough cycle. When the cycle was finished I rolled them out and followed the recipe except for adding brown sugar instead of white sugar. I have tried other recipes before and these are the best ones I've ever made. They were a big hit!

This was the first time I'd attempted cinnamon rolls, and what a great way to start! Simple to make and far too easy to eat...! The frosting is by far the best I've ever tasted; quite sweet, but delicious. My only complaint was that there wasn't a ton of cinnamon flavour, and no drippy, gooey cinnamon-sugar concoction oozing from the rolls (my favourite part!). I'll definitely use the recipe for the dough and for the icing, but will probably tweak the cinnamon-sugar mixture by using about 2 to 2 1/2 cups of brown sugar in place of the white and increasing the cinnamon significantly as well. Beyond that, these were excellent! Thanks, Jamie.

I've made these cinnamon rolls several times. They are easy and delicious. I usually leave them in the oven overnight and bake them in the morning. I like to top them with a cream cheese frosting and walnuts. Delicious!
