How to Make ''Bonnie's Easy Big-Batch Cinnamon Rolls''


  1. Combine cake mix, yeast, 1 cup of flour, and salt in a large bowl. Stir in water, eggs, and oil. Beat 2 minutes on medium speed of electric mixer.
    Gradually add enough remaining flour to make a soft dough.
  2. Turn dough out on a well floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic, {About 5 minutes}.
    Cover dough and let rest 10 minutes.
  3. Divide dough in half and roll each half into a 15 x 14 rectangle and spread each half with 2 sticks of margarine and half of the cinnamon and sugar mixture (or to taste).
  4. Roll up each rectangle jellyroll fashion, starting at long side, moisten edges with water and pinch to seal. Cut each roll into 1 inch slices.
    Place slices cut side down on two greased 13x9x2 inch pans.
  5. Cover and let rise in a warm place, free from drafts, about 45 min.
    Rolls will not double in bulk. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 min.
  6. Combine powdered sugar, milk and vanilla, stirring well. Drizzle over warm rolls.
    Yield about 30 large rolls. Enjoy!!!
    You can use either a white or yellow cake mix.
    Don't use a cake mix that has pudding in.
