These delicious cinnamon rolls are easy to make with the help of your bread machine.


  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup softened butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons dry milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons yeast
  • ***Filling***
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar, mixed with 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans or raisins, optional
  • ***Icing***
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons hot water
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar


Add ingredients according to manufacturer's suggested order and set on dough cycle. Turn onto lightly floured board. Roll out to a rectangle about 10 X 18 inches. Brush with melted butter; sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar mixture and pecans, if used. Starting at long end, carefully roll up; pinch seams together. Measure and cut 1-inch slices. Place cut side up on a buttered baking sheet. Cover with a slightly dampened towel and let rise in a warm place for about 45 minutes to 1 hour. Bake at 375° for 15 minutes, or until browned. Drizzle with the icing (below), or your own favorite glaze or icing.


Melt butter in a medium saucepan; add hot water and vanilla. Remove from heat then stir in confectioners' sugar. Add more hot water, 1/2 to 1 teaspoon at a time, until desired consistency.

yum yum and yum, Member camoore54

Honestly, these are the best cinnamon rolls I have EVER made! I've made several different recipes and these are incredible! The bread is soft, not dry/coarse like other recipes. They took a long time to get them to rise, but I live at high elevation (approx 5500ft) and I had all day so I didn't mind. Will absolutely, definitely, most certainly, positively, keep this recipe and make it again! I should add that I did a different recipe for the frosting because I ran out of butter, but I'm sure this recipe is great too. I used almond milk with a little vanilla, brown sugar and powdered sugar. YUM!
