Super Sticky Cinnamon Buns (Bread Machine Style)

        
     
Pinterest

This recipe is not so good for me, but it is OH-SO-GOOD to me!!! Let me just say, that if you have a bread machine, you have GOT to make these! If you don’t have a bread machine, you need to go out and get one. We LOVE this recipe and it is SOOOO easy to make!

Let me start by saying that I found this recipe over at AllRecipes.com. It is called Clone of a Cinnabon (though, my kids fondly refer to them as the “super, sticky, cinnamon buns) and it was submitted by Marsha Fernandez. Thank you so much Ms. Marsha for this awesome recipe. So, you can head over to AllRecipes and check it out or you can follow the directions here. I have only made a few changes and I will highlight them in italics.

INGREDIENTS (for the dough):1 cup warm milk
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 (regular yeast seems to work just fine)
INGREDIENTS (for the cinnamon mixture):
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
1/3 cup butter, softened

INGREDIENTS (for frosting):
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


DIRECTIONS:Place ingredients in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select dough cycle; press Start.

After the dough has doubled in size turn it out onto a lightly floured surface, cover and let rest for 10 minutes. (I just let the dough sit in the pan for awhile after the cycle is over rather than letting it rest on a floured surface.)

In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon.

Roll dough into a 16×21 inch rectangle. (I use Pam to spray the surface that I roll the dough on.)

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. (I usually make mine in the evenings and I let them rise overnight in the refrigerator so I can just pop them in the oven in the morning.)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). 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. (I have made this frosting, which is great, but I have also just used some store-bought cream cheese frosting.) Spread frosting on warm rolls before serving.

Enjoy!!!

    You can also make this recipe without a bread maker! :) I did and it worked great!

    Here is how I did it:

    Dissolve the yeast in the warm milk in a large bowl.

    Mix in the sugar, margarine, salt, and eggs. Add flour and mix well.

    Knead the dough into a large ball, using your hands dusted lightly with flour.

    Put in a bowl, cover and let rise in a warm place about 1 hour, or until doubled in size.

    Then pick up with rolling out the dough.

    The only other thing I changed was to mix the butter, cinnamon and sugar together into a paste and then rub it all over the dough. It made them nice and gooey.

    Rachelle,

    Glad you were able to adjust the recipe for those who don’t have a bread machine.

    I LOVE the idea of making the butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon into a paste and spreading it over the rolled out dough!!! GREAT IDEA!!! I will DEFINITELY try that next time!!!

    Well, I think it was a good thing you posted the recipe! These look absolutely yummy and way stickier than the ones I make. I think, also, that I am going to have to make these!

    Glad you had a great trip! With those, I am sure life will settle back into your routine much quicker. . . and sweeter! Enjoy! *Ü*

    I’m on the hunt for a bread machine – which one do you use?

    I have a Breadman bread machine. However, I have NEVER purchased one brand new. I am always able to find them in VERY good condition at thrift stores!!! The most I have paid for a bread machine has been $30. Most of the time I find them for around $10.

    Um yeah these were like mind blowing. I wanted to share a tip I adapted from Alton Brown. In the morning, after an hour on the counter and no puffing was happening, I set the pan over a large pan of simmering water on the stove and covered the rolls with a cookie sheet and before long they were soft and puffy and ready for the oven. I also brushed all the exposed dough with butter. We got this amazing caramel crust on the bottom!

    Oh, my mouth is watering! I think I know what we are having for breakfast in the morning! Thanks for the tip!
