My usual cinnamon roll recipe is the one that uses a white or yellow cake mix This however looks faster and almost as easy. I like the idea that it makes just 8 rather than the 24 the other recipe makes. Hope they are as tender and delicious Chris Kimbell has seldom done a recipe wrong.

How to Make Tina's ATK Cinnamon Rolls


  • 1In a small bowl, mix yeast, warm milk and 1 teaspoon sugar. Let bloom 5-10 minutes
  • 2In another bowl mix light browna dn white sugars, cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon salt, 2 tablespoon melted butter and vanilla until mixture looks like wet sand. Set aside.
  • 3In large bowl, place flour, baking powder, salt, 3/4 teaspoon salt and 5 teaspoons sugar. Blend well.
  • 4In separate bowl blend 2 tablespoons melted butter, room temperature milk. Add the yeast mixture and blend.
  • 5Pour wet ingredients in the dry and mix to a nice dough. Dump out dough onto a floured board and knead just 2 minutes. Roll into a 9x12 rectangle. Lightly score a boarder that is 1/2 inch in all sides. Brush with another 2 tablespoons of melted butter inside the scored rectangle taking care not to extend the butter into the 1/2 inch boarder.
  • 6Press the cinnamon mixture onto the buttered part of the dough. Roll up starting at a long edge. Pinch seams and cut into 8 slices. I use dental floss to cut my dough. Grease a 9 inch round baking pan and then place a buttered circle of parchment paper in the bottom of the pan. Place the rolls in the pan. Let rest 30 minutes. Bake 23 minutes at 350 degrees.
  • 7Remove from oven. Let cool 5-10 minutes in the pan. Invert on to plate. Remove parchment, invert again onto serving plate so top side is up. Cool
  • 8Mix frosting ingredients until smooth and frost rolls with offset spatula.
