Tried this recipe based on positive reviews, but found them to be a flavorless mess. 4.5C was no where near enough flour. Added extra, 1/2C at a time and actually lost count at 6.5C. The dough never came together properly, but I continued with preparation anyway. The dough did rise nicely, but it was far too loose and practically impossible to work with. Melting the butter made it very easy to get it and the cinnamon/sugar on the dough, but the dough was too mushy to roll. Thankfully I rolled it out on a piece of floured plastic wrap and was able to use that to help me form the roll. The log would have been impossible to cut, so I covered and tossed it in the frig overnight hoping that would help firm it up enough to cut. Again, it rose nicely and I was finally able to cut the log into rolls. I baked them for 20 minutes - they browned nicely but over half of the filling bled out leaving a tasteless mess of a cinnamon roll. There was literally no flavor! I made a quick glaze with powdered sugar, a few drops of milk, and a dash of vanilla. My son was finally able to eat one once we glazed them, but they were just not good enough to justify the time involved. Followed instructions to the letter, with the exception of the flour, but this was just off. Won't be making these again. You'll be better off with the kind you pop from a can. If you do decide to try them, I highly recommend using softened butter NOT melted, in order to keep more of the filling inside the roll.
