Clone of the Cinnabon ?

I stumbled across this amazing 'CLONE OF THE CINNABON' recipe on and just had to try it.
Clone? I think not.
Tastes like the real deal to me !


1 cup warm milk (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
2 eggs, room temperature
1/3 cup margarine, melted
4 1/2 cups bread flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup white sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons bread machine yeast

1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
1/3 cup butter, softened

1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt

1.Place ingredients in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select dough cycle; press Start.

(note: just for fun, the next time I make these, I'm going to try the ready made frozen dough from the grocery and see if they are just as good. I'll let you all know!)

2.After the dough has doubled in size turn it out onto a lightly floured surface, cover and let rest for 10 minutes. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon.

3.Roll dough into a 16x21 inch rectangle. Spread dough with 1/3 cup butter and sprinkle evenly with sugar/cinnamon mixture. Roll up dough and cut into 12 rolls. Place rolls in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking pan. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

4.Bake rolls in preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes. While rolls are baking, beat together cream cheese, 1/4 cup butter, confectioners' sugar, vanilla extract and salt. Spread frosting on warm rolls before serving.

Oh Mamma Mia ! I would definitely recommend making these.... yum!

I had quite the sad teenagers milling about when they realized they gobbled them all up and I didn't have 'more' hanging around...

Wow. Wow. Wow. Those look so good. I would quite possibly do something rash for one of those and a tall glass of OJ. To bad i'm sitting in my classroom with a bottle of water and a banana. Its just not the same :(

Happy Monday!

Omg, those look amazing! I could eat cinnamon rolls everyday and never get sick of them.

Your dog is sooo cute!! :)

Barbara said...

Oh my! Those look divine. My mouth is watering...guess I should go eat breakfast, although it won't be as fabulous as your clone!

Pam said...

Okay if you say I need to make them, then I guess I will.

Leah said...

Oh my goodness! Must make these this weekend!

Jane said...

This recipe looks wonderful! I just may have to break my "rule" of making cinnamon rolls only twice a year...Christmas and Easter.

One thing I learned in college (that was LONG ago)...while drooling over the cinnabon window at the mall...some of their rolls use crushed red cinnamon candies (red hots) in the cinnamon/sugar mixture.
I have tried it...good, but I prefer lots of Saigon cinnamon in mine.

Natasha said...

I will never forget the first time I tried one of these in was like, well, heaven! I wonder if I could attempt this here in Australia...I might just have to try!

Thanks for the recipe!

Best wishes,

Oh my, this looks good! I love cinnamon rolls!

ButterYum said...

As far as I'm concerned, cream cheese frosting is the only way a cinnamon roll should be topped!

Fabulous photos!
