These are great cinnamon rolls, gooey and sweet, simply yummy! My Aunt calls them "Fat Pills" because she can't stop eating them. They are favorites of my kids and grandkids and they will be your favorites too. They recipe looks a lot more complicated than it is, in fact its really simple.

How to Make Gooey Buns

Step-by-Step

  1. In a bread machine pan, place the milk, beaten egg, melted butter, water, vanilla pudding mix, flour, sugar, salt and yeast. Select the dough cycle.
  2. When the cycle is finished, remove the dough and knead for 3 to 5 minutes. Roll out into a large rectangle.
  3. Mix together theh softened butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. Spread over the dough. Sprinkle with chopped walnuts and raisins.
  4. Starting with the widest side, roll the dough into a log. Pinch to seal seams. Cut carefully into 1 inch pieces without smashing the dough. (I use a serrated knife and gently "saw" it into slices without using a lot of pressure)
  5. Place slices in a greased pan and put into a warm draft free place to rise until doubled in size.
  6. Place the pan of rolls into a preheated 350F oven and bake for 15-20 minutes.
  7. To make the frosting, mix the milk, sugar, softened butter and vanilla in a small bowl. Spread over the warm cinnamon rolls. Serve while still hot but they are also good at room temp.
