LOVE cinnamon buns. They are my go-to treat of choice. I’m always so excited when Trevor brings them home from the store as a surprise.
So you can imagine my excitement when I came across a recipe for cinnamon buns in the bread maker. I just had to make these. Luckily I have a bread machine so it takes a lot of the work out of making them from scratch. Don’t they look yummy!

The recipe is adapted from the Betty Crocker Cookbook.

You can find the recipe card at the bottom of this post.

Here is the step by step.                 NOTE:  This recipe requires a bread maker.

1. Place following into bread maker in the order listed. (this is the order my bread machine calls for)

1 cup room temperature water
1/4 cup margarine or softened butter
1 egg
1/3 cup white sugar
1 tsp salt
3 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp yeast

2. Turn on bread machine to dough setting. Check how long it will take so you can ensure you are available when the dough is ready. Mine took 2 hours.

3. Mix 1/2  cup brown sugar & 1 tsp cinnamon in a bowl for filling.

4. Roll dough flat with a rolling pin on a lightly floured surface. Your approx size should be 8″ x 15″.

5. Spread 2 tbsp softened butter or margarine onto flattened dough.

6. Sprinkle brown sugar/cinnamon mixture onto dough, make sure you get all the way to the edge.

7. Roll up dough tightly. I rolled from the short side so I would have big cinnamon rolls. While rolling it helps to stretch the sides to keep it as a rectangle type shape. Once completely rolled pinch to seal the edge.

8. Cut roll into 1″ pieces. I used my serrated lettuce knife and it worked great!

9. Place rolls into greased 9″ x 11″ pan.

10. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit for approx 30 mins for them to rise.

11. Bake at 350deg for 25-30 mins

12. Whisk together the following for glaze, adding milk until smooth and thin enough to drizzle
1 1/4c icing sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
6 to 8 tsp milk

13. Once buns are cooled pour glaze over them. Make sure they are in the container you will store them in so it catches the extra glaze.

These taste great heated in the microwave for 10-15 seconds.
