Unfrosted Cinnamon Roll

I don’t bake.  I love to cook but baking is too exacting for me.   You have to be precise in your measurements or it doesn’t rise or completely crumbles.

For my daughter’s slumber party I wanted to make a special breakfast so I found the EASIEST Breadmaker Cinnamon Rolls I could find on Pinterest.   This recipe from CDKitchen.com for Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls Using a Bread Machine seemed to be exactly what I was looking for.

Verdict:

These were so easy.  We were able to put the ingredients into the bread maker and an hour and a half later we had the dough.  Rolling it out and adding the cinnamon and sugar was simple.  Instead of making 12 large rolls we made 24 smaller rolls.

The girls loved them and we had leftovers for breakfast the next day.
