How to Make Brenda's Perfect Cinnamon Rolls!!


  • 1Add 1st 6 ingredients to bread machine.
  • 2Mix the warm water and yeast, stir and let sit about 5 min.
  • 3Add yeast to Bread machine and set to dough setting.
    If you do not have a bread machine just use your mixer with the dough hook or mix by hand. let rise for about 1/2 hour.
  • 4Set your oven now to 350
  • 5After bread rises, roll out into a rectangle about 12 X 9 and you want the dough to be kind of thick. After rolled out take the butter for the inside and spread it out so it covers ALL the dough, sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar over the dough covering it all! Now my family does Not let me add the raisins and pecans, however I do love to make them with so you can add them or leave them out.
  • 6Now roll them up! You want them to be 12 inches long (Now I don't always get this perfect and end up with longer but taller rolls) When done rolling them, cut them into 12 equal sized rolls and place in baking dish.
  • 7Let them rise till 2x their size (about 1 hour) covered, and in a warm spot. After they rise place in oven and set timer for 20 min.
  • 8Let cool for a bit, They can still be a little warm when frosting them...(after years of doing it the home made way I got lazy and now just buy frosting and put it in the microwave till its pourable and pour it over them) Enjoy them with my Chili recipe!
