Cinnabons are one of those treats that you start enjoying before you even taste them. The smell of a cinnabon in the oven wafts through your home and out your door. I have had kids in the neighborhood mysteriously show up when I am baking them. Then hot and gooey with ample icing dripping down the sides and then down your fingers you indulge. Ahhhhh, it’s a treat for anyone from 2 to 92.
In our house cinnabons are a tradition on Easter and Christmas morning and are served in place of a birthday cake for my 13 year old son. They are wonderful when you wake up or on the buffet table. This recipe comes from AllRecipes.com and it’s a winner. Hats off to Pink Penguin Star for posting this one.
If you want to make breakfast a little more special serve them up and make sure to add them to your Easter Brunch!
- 1 cup warm milk (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
- 2 eggs, room temperature
- 1/3 cup margarine, melted
- 4 1/2 cups bread flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 2 1/2 teaspoons bread machine yeast
- 1 cup brown sugar, packed
- 2 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
- 1/3 cup butter, softened
- 1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 1 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
1. Place ingredients in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select dough cycle; press Start.
2. After the dough has doubled in size turn it out onto a lightly floured surface, cover and let rest for 10 minutes. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon.
3. Roll dough into a 16×21 inch rectangle. Spread dough with 1/3 cup butter and sprinkle evenly with sugar/cinnamon mixture. Roll up dough and cut into 12 rolls. Place rolls in a lightly greased 9×13 inch baking pan. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
4. Bake rolls in preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes. While rolls are baking, beat together cream cheese, 1/4 cup butter, confectioners’ sugar, vanilla extract and salt. Spread frosting on warm rolls before serving.
