Homemade Cinnamon Rolls Recipe – Here’s an easy alternative to buying those famous cinnamon rolls in the mall. They taste exactly the same, and the dough is made in the bread machine.



¼ cup water at room temperature
¼ cup butter, melted
½ (3.4 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
1 cup warm milk
1 egg, room temperature
1 tablespoon white sugar
½ teaspoon salt
4 cups bread flour
1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
½ cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
¾ cup chopped pecans (Optional)
1 (4 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
¼ cup butter, softened
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ½ teaspoons milk


Step 1
In the pan of your bread machine, combine water, 1/4 cup melted butter, vanilla pudding, 1 cup warm milk, egg, 1 tablespoon sugar, salt, bread flour, and yeast. Set machine to Dough cycle; press Start.

Step 2
When Dough cycle has finished, turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and roll into a 17×10 inch rectangle. Spread with 1/2 cup softened butter. In a small bowl, stir together brown sugar, cinnamon, and pecans. Sprinkle brown sugar mixture over dough.

Step 3
Butter a 9×13-inch baking pan.

Step 6
Bake rolls in preheated oven until browned, 15 to 20 minutes.
