"My husband was the inspiration for this recipe. These rolls are extremely tasty and are not heavy. The secret to this recipe lies in the frosting. As they say the easiest way to a man's heart is through his stomach!" — MEFROMNWIA

2 (.25 ounce) packages
active dry yeast
2 1/2 cups
warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
1 (9 ounce) package
yellow cake mix
1 1/2 teaspoons
1 1/2 tablespoons
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!
