Bread Machine Cinnamon Rolls

One of my favorite things to make are cinnamon rolls and having a bread machine makes it even that much easier! My mom and grandma both made good cinnamon rolls, but even my mom admits this recipe beats hers hands down! I’m sure you could make it without a bread machine, by mixing with a Kitchenaid mixer or by hand. You would just need to mix it up like you would regular bread dough and set it aside to raise for the first time, then just follow the directions the same way.

I will have the full recipe at the end of the post for you .

For the dough, you will need the following ingredients.


  • 1 cup milk 
  • 1 egg, beaten 
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter 
  • 4 tablespoons water 
  • ½ (3.5 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix 
  • 4 cups bread flour or (all-purpose flour)
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar 
  • ½ teaspoon salt 
  • 2 ¼ teaspoons bread machine yeast
    Add into your bread machine according to manufacturer’s directions. I added my ingredients in the order listed. Turn machine on to dough cycle.

This is what the dough looks like after it has finished the dough cycle.

Spread a little flour on your counter and roll out into a large rectangle.
Mix 1/2 cup butter, softened, 1 cup packed brown sugar, 2 tsps of cinnamon and spread on the rolled out dough.
The way I do it, I take the softened butter and spread it on the dough, then spread brown sugar on top and then sprinkle with cinnamon.

Then, starting with the larges end, roll dough into a log and cut into 1/2″ to 1″ slices. Cut int 12 or 18 slices.

Roll dough into a log

Place slices, cut side up and place into a prepared pan. If you want yours extra “gooey” you can melt some more butter and add brown sugar and pour into your pan.

Extra butter and cinnamon sauce

Place rolls into 9 x 13 pan. Place in a draft free place, cover with a clean cloth and let rise until double in size.

Preheat oven to 350˚ F (175˚ C) Bake 15-20 minutes or until completely done and golden. Make frosting and spread over warm rolls. I usually don’t put frosting on mine because they are sweet enough without it.

I hope you will try this recipe, it will become one of your favorite recipes!
