  • *** DOUGH:

  • 1/4 cup warm water

  • 1 cup milk -- room temperature

  • 1 large egg -- beaten

  • 1/4 cup butter -- softened

  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 4 cups all purpose white flour

  • 1/2 package instant vanilla pudding mix

  • (3.4 oz box)

  • 1 tablespoon bread machine yeast

  • ***FILLING :

  • 1 cup brown sugar -- packed

  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon

  • 1/4 cup butter -- softened


  • 4 ounces cream cheese (like Kiri) -- softened

  • 1/4 cup butter -- softened

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1/2 tablespoon milk

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


  • 1.

    Dough : Add the dough ingredients, in the order listed, to the bread machine and prepare using the dough setting.

  • 2.

    On a lightly floured surface, roll out to an 18" by 30" rectangle. The dough can also be handmade. If you use regular yeast, you may want to let the rolls proof for 15-30 minutes after assembly.

  • 3.

    Filling : In a small bowl, mix brown sugar and cinnamon. Spread the softened butter over the dough and evenly sprinkle on the sugar and cinnamon mixture. Starting at the long edge of the dough, roll up tightly. Mark the roll every 1-2 inches (according to your preference of thickness). With a thread cut the roll by placing the thread under the roll at your mark, crisscross over and pull to cut.

  • 4.

    Place rolls into greased 8" or 9" baking pans, lined with baking paper, 2" apart. Cover and let rise in a warm, draft free place until almost double, approximately 1 hour. After rising, rolls should be touching each other and the sides of the pan. Bake at 350F (180C) degrees . for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown.

  • 5.

    Cream Cheese Cinnamon Frosting : In a small bowl, mix cream cheese, butter, vanilla and milk. Add powdered sugar and cinnamon and mix until smooth. Spread on warm rolls and serve immediately.

  • 6.

    (This recipe has been adjusted so that the dough can be prepared in your bread machine. )

I didn't do any changes to this recipe, maybe just added more cinnamon and butter for the filling..
For the frosting, I didn't add the cinnamon, I kept it white.
Another thing, I baked it at high temprature, 495F (240Cdegrees), BUT baked it on the top third rack, not the middle one as we do for cakes.. try if you want both ways and see which suits you more.

Can u tell me what is instant Vanilla pudding mix is ??
Posted by Huda Abu HamdiaReport
Hi Shereen..
It's a pudding mix which you can buy from the supermarket, the kind that you DO NOT boil when adding milk, you just add to it cold milk and whisk and it's ready, that's why it's called instant.
Check out this link to see the packet:
It helps to make the dough softer, same as for cakes by the way! ;-)

These look like Cinnabon rolls and if they taste like them, then I'm very excited! Thankyou for posting this recipe!

Another thing, You can prepare, bake them, and when they cool, pack and freeze them ( without frosting them). Whenever you feel like having some, just keep it in the microwave on defrost for a minute or so, i't'll come out as if just were baked now.. then add the frosting.
Threy are so yummy really

they do .. you have to try them .. I had a recipe in my mom's cook book,used to make many years ago.. but the problem in it was that it becomes dry if not eaten warm, so I kept on searching till I found this one. I think the softness comes from the instant pudding added ..
Another thing, make sure the yeast is fresh, I prefer using the normal one, not the instant, so I can make sure that it work when i add it to the warm water.
