Bread Machine Cinnamon Rolls 

Servings 12


  • 1 cup milk
  • ¼ cup warm water
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tbsps melted butter
  • 41/2 cups bread flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 21/2 tsp bread machine yeast
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp softened butter
  • 3 oz softened cream cheese
  • 3 tbsp softened butter
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • tsp salt


  • Heat milk and water to between 110F to 120F. It's easy to do this in the microwave. Heat for 30 seconds, check the liquid with a digital thermometer and heat another 20 to 30 seconds if needed. Note: don't put liquids hotter than 120 degrees in the machine. It will ruin the proof.
  • Load ingredients according to the instructions that came with your bread machine.
  • Set the machine to the dough cycle and let it run.
  • When the alarm sounds, check the dough for elasticity and add water or flour as needed.
  • Lightly oil your work surface.
  • When the bread machine finishes, remove the dough to your work surface and shape into a ball. Cover completely with a cotton cloth or plastic wrap and let it rest for 10 to 20 minutes.
  • While the dough rests, mix the softened butter, brown sugar and cinnamon together for spreading.
  • Roll the dough out into a rectangle shape about 12 by  24 inches. You want it to be about ¼ inch thick.
  • Spread the filling evenly onto the dough, leaving a ¼ inch border.
  • Roll up the dough using gentle pressure to keep the roll even. Your roll should be nice and tight. Pinch the seam together to seal it securely
  • Measure and mark the dough into 12 equal portions. Cut the portions apart with string or a pastry scraper blade.
  • Line a 9 x13 baking dish with parchment paper and place cinnamon rolls inside in rows of three.
  • Cover with a cotton towel or cloth (not terrycloth) and allow to proof until doubled in size (approximately 30 minutes)
  • After proofing, place cinnamon rolls on the center rack of a 375F preheated oven and bake 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown.
  • After baking, place the rolls on a wire rack to cool. While the cinnamon rolls cool, whip the icing ingredients together until smooth. Spread icing onto the cooled rolls with a silicone spatula and serve.
