"Easy, yeasted cinnamon rolls. A crowd always gathers when they come out of the oven. Favorite activity: scraping the goo off the bottom of the pan."

WONDERFUL!!! These cinnamon rolls were very quick and easy, the only changes I had to make were to add more flour (about a cup and a half or two cups) to keep it from being so sticky, and I added some cinnamon to the dough and about 1/4 cup sugar because I noticed the recipe didn't call for any. Also sugar helps the yeast proof faster. Since we love cinnamon, I put more into the brown sugar mix than the recipe called for. Also, I put them in the refrigerator overnight and they rose some, but not as much as I wanted so I let them rise in a warm place (the closet) for an hour before I baked them. The baking time was only 14 minutes for mine, and the cinnamon rolls were so perfect and golden and ENORMOUS! This recipe made 18 enormous cinnamon rolls. Seeing as it's only my mom and I, I'm going to give some to neighbors and friends. I topped them with homemade cream cheese frosting, but I don't think they needed it because they were already so moist and soft and wonderful. I don't think they were cakey or biscuity at all. As good as Cinnabon, just a lot cheaper! And if you crowd the pan a bit, the middles of the cinnamon rolls will come up just like Cinnabons. A couple tips: Warm the buttermilk over the lowest heat setting or it will start to curdle. Also, once you have your cinnamon roll log, stretch it out a bit if you need to to make it all the same thickness. And to cut them, get a piece of thread and put it around as much roll as you want to cut off, then pull the
I followed this recipe exactly and well it came out horrible ! you need at least 8 cups of flour, I kept adding and the dough was so sticky. Then I couldn’t even cut in to it with out it still being so sticky, I bake a lot so I do know what I am doing . Don’t waste your time on this recipe, or money. Finally I just stuck the big log on a cookie sheet and baked it, looks terrible. I promise you if you do this recipe you’ll be very up set ! just terrible ! I always read the reviews and well it seem like it was going to be great, if so many people loved this recipe why did mine come out so horrible !!!!!!!! and a complete waste of time !!!! we looked at it and after this thing cooled off we tossed it in the trash :- (
If I could give this 10 stars, I would. It is by far the best and easiest cinnamon bun recipe out there. I follow the dough recipe to the T, then vary the fillings. Mini chocolate chips with toasted pecans and a butter/cinnamon/brown sugar mix was a huge hit at the inn I was pastry chef for; had people driving all the way from Maine to get them. Orange zest and walnuts with a raw sugar/butter filling is divine with a light orange zest infused sugar icing glaze at the end. Make them at night, refrigerate overnight and bake in the morning for something that tastes like you spent hours and hours on it. Oh, and a note. If you warm the buttermilk too much, it curdles, but doesn't wreck it. Just stir with a wisk and dump it into the mixer. No worries!
These cinnamon rolls are delicious. They were very easy to make. I let my bread machine do the mixing and kneading. I had to add an extra 1/4-1/2 cup of flour, and I added about 1/2 teaspoon of extra cinnamon (I love cinnamon). I also added raisins, and lightly frosted them with cream cheese frosting. WOW!!!!! I will definitely be making these again.
These cinnamon rolls are easy to make with my dough hook in my Kitchenaid Mixer - they are light and fluffy. I make them into sticky buns by coating the bottom of the pan with molasses/pancake syrup/brown sugar - mixture of anything you would like. Turn them out immediately upon removing from the oven and they are heavenly. We have had raves about them. Thanks for sharing this easy, easy recipe.
Friends of mine wanted me to write this review. They usually browse the gourmet cooking sites, but needed and easy recipe. They knew I always use All Recipe.Com. They decided on this one and their whole family loved them. They said it was very easy and they turned out GREAT! They would highly recommend this recipe to everybody.
This recipe is easy and comes out great every time. I doubled it for Christmas morning breakfast and it was perfect. I add a glaze/frosting. The best part is, you can make them the night before and just stick them in the oven and 30 minutes later you have nice hot homemade cinnamon buns. Don't be scared by the long list of ingredients, it goes together perfectly and quickly.
We tried the recipe twice. The rolls tasted more like biscuits with a hint of cinnamon. The next day we added more cinnamon but they turned out kind of the same. We ended up just adding in extra sugar and cinnamon and turned the recipe into cokkies. I think I am going to stick with the Betty Crocker Cinnamon Roll Recipe. Right on, to anyone that gets these rolls to come out right. Send me a few so that I can try them! : )
