Cinabon Rolls (bread machine)

oh, boy, oh boy, oh boy! We all can't WAIT to wake up in the morning (which is quite unusual for this household...we're NOT morning people! ) My friend Lee just sent me this recipe today, and I had to try it. I'm gonna get a mom of the year award tomorrow morning (well...that is IF they bake up as nicely as they are rising, LOL.

I made kind of a mess with the filling, though. Learned a lesson. It says to microwave the filling to make it more spreadable. BUT...I had already used spreadable margarine. So it all basically melted, and all oozed out as I was rolling it up. Lesson learned? Don't nuke soft spread margarine when you are using it for a cinnamon roll filling :)

Ron kinda wonders why I've turned over a new leaf...making breakfast for the kids each day. I'm so not a morning person, that they usually have to fend for themselves.

Cinnabon's for the Bread Machine

This recipe uses a bread machine.
Dough 2 pound ingredient

1 c. milk
1 egg, beaten
4 Tbsp. melted butter
4 Tbsp. water
1/2 box instant vanilla pudding (3.4 oz. box) (1/3 c. of bulk vanilla pudding mix)
4 c. bread flour
1 T. sugar
1/2 t. salt
2-1/2 t. bread machine yeast

1/2 c. butter, softened
1 c. brown sugar
2 t. cinnamon
1/4 c. chopped walnuts, opt
1/4 c. raisins opt.

Place all ingredients in your machine in order recommended by your machine’s manufacturer. Place the pan in your machine. Select the dough cycle and press start. When cycle is finished, remove the dough, knead enough to punch down and roll to 17X10. Combine first three filling ingredients and mix well. Heat in microwave 10 sec. to make it spreadable--uummmm....maybe not! This made a MESS! Spread over rolled out dough with rubber spatula. Get as close to the edges as possible. Sprinkle nuts or raisins over dough. Starting with widest end, roll the dough into tight log. Cut into 1/2-1” slices. Place in a lightly greased baking dish with sides. Put in warm draft free place and allow them to raise until double. (I turn my oven on warm and place them inside. When the temperature light goes off, turn off the oven. I let them rise 20-30 minutes this way. Take out to heat oven to baking temp.) Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes. When the rolls are done top with frosting of your choice.(We like vanilla cake icing...mmmmmm) Note: For a real treat replace raisins in the filling with chopped dried cherries, blueberries or strawberries. When doing this use frosting 1 or 2 and add a Tbsp. of matching fruit jam.
Yield: A full 9x13 pan.
