I love to have little treats for when my son comes from school, but it does not happen everyday. Sometimes Goldfish will do. But yesterday I made our favorite recipe of bread machine cinnamon rolls, and the actual name is ” Clone of Cinnabon.” I got this recipe from All Recipes but like always, I still make it my own. The actual recipe calls for bread flour and I particularly do not like it. I think it makes the dough tougher and it takes more time to rise. I also don’t like frosting -I know, it’s kind of awkward- so I make some with a simple glaze and some without.
- 1 cup warm milk
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup butter MELTED
- 4 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 1/2tsp bread machine yeast
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 1/2 TBSP cinnamon
- extra softened butter
- powder sugar and milk for glaze
After the dough cycle is finished, take the dough out, deflate it and put it in a lightly floured counter. Roll out. The dough should be elastic just as shown on the picture. Roll out to a rectangle, about 1/4 of a inch.
Now you can start rolling. Make sure you roll a little bit and then stretch the dough and kind of tuck it in. Continue rolling until it looks like the picture. Cut you rolls. We like smaller rolls, but if you really want to make the clone of Cinnabon, make them bigger! I usually bake them and leave a batch on the freezer!
Put them in a GREASED baking sheet. Do not use Pam, butter is better. The brown sugar is really sticky
when it melts! Cover.
