Bread Machine Cinnamon Rolls


I’m a huge fan of my bread machine!

Whilst I don’t use it all the time I do have a number of easy recipes that I like to use when I have a special occasion or fancy making a quick treat.

Some of my favourite recipes I make in the bread machine include; bread, fruit loaf, carrot cake, pizza dough and my delicious cinnamon rolls.


Cinnamon Rolls Recipe


I know not everyone has a bread machine sitting at home but for those of you who do I thought I’d share my famous (well amongst our friends and family anyway) ‘Cinnamon Rolls’ recipe.

Now despite my complaints of everything here in the Netherlands tasting predominantly of cinnamon (sometimes you can have too much of a good thing), this is actually one of our family’s all-time favourites.

I don’t make them too often because they are so calorie laden but on high days and holidays we love to indulge (I think a batch may be going this weekend for Father’s Day πŸ™‚ ).

Cinnamon Rolls – Bread Machine Recipe


Makes Approx 10 – 15 rolls

The original recipe was used the American cup measuring system but I have also converted to the European measuring system of grams and ml (some the measurements have been slightly rounded up or down to make it a bit easier).



45 ml (3 tablespoons)  – oil (I use sunflower or whatever I have on hand)

255 ml (1 cup + 2 tablespoons) – warm milk (not too warm or else it will scramble the egg!)

1 x whole egg + 2 x egg whites (lightly beaten)

110g (Β½ cup) – granulated sugar

560g (4 x cups) – plain flour (if the dough looks too wet after the first few minutes of the kneading cycle you can always add a little more)

1 teaspoon – salt

3 teaspoons – yeast



25g (2 tbsp) – butter

130g (2/3 cup) – brown sugar (I use ‘donker basterd suiker’ here in the Netherlands)

1/2 to 1 tablespoons – cinnamon (adjust according to personal taste)



1 teaspoon – milk

210g (1 1/2 cups) – icing sugar

55g (3 to 4 tbsp) – butter

1 teaspoon of vanilla essence




1.   For the dough you should normally put the ingredients in the machine in the order in which the manufacturer specifies.  I personally put them in in the order in which they are listed above.  Turn your machine onto the dough cycle.


2.   Next make the filling.  Slightly melt the butter (I do mine in the microwave) and mix together with the sugar and cinnamon until completely combined and set aside.


3.   Then mix the icing ingredients together until combined and set aside.


4.   Grease and line baking tin with grease-proof paper (I use a sort of reusable teflon baking foil).


5.   When dough is ready turn out on to a floured surface and lightly shape into a ball.


6.   Cut the ball in half (you can just do it as one piece but I find this easier and like the smaller rolls.


7.   Take one of the halves and roll out in to a large rectangle.


8.   Spread half the filling mix on the rectangle of dough then roll up.


9.   Slice the roll into pieces approximately 2 – 3 cm thick.


10.   Repeat with the second half of the dough.


11.   Place pieces on lined baking tray


12.   Put rolls into a pre-heated oven and bake at  160Β°C  (325Β°F) for 20 minutes or until they are lightly browned.


13.  When ready take out of the oven and immediately spread the topping over the rolls.

I normally freeze half the batch.


It is also possible to make the cinnamon rolls ahead of time and bake them fresh the next morning – just wrap in clingfilm and pop them in the fridge.


I have been using this recipe for years now but I originally found this recipe over at  ‘money saving mom’. Thanks Crystal πŸ™‚


I hope you love this recipe as much as we do! πŸ™‚

    Cinnamon rolls are my favorite and I am always looking for new recipes for my bread machine. Such a great idea.

      These are too delicious – it’s dangerous. I always try to get half the batch in the freezer but that can be kind of difficult sometimes as they disappear so fast – lol

    How scrumptious! It has been ages since I’ve had a cinnamon roll, but I’m craving for one now. πŸ™‚

      I tend to make everything but bread in my bread maker. My other half doesn’t have a particularly sweet tooth but these disappear at an amazing rate πŸ˜‰

      You won’t regret it πŸ™‚ I try different recipes all the time but I always come back to this one.

    Yum! These look so delish! I LOVE cinnamon rolls. My mom used to always make bread in a bread machine, but she had never made cinnamon rolls…

    • July 20, 2016 at 10:38 am

      They certainly are Kirsta πŸ™‚ I love to cook but I’m kind of lazy so if there is a quick and easy way I take that option every time. I like the fact you just throw the ingredients in and the bread machine sorts the dough with perfect results every time.

      My sentiments exactly! When I have made a batch I actually feel relieved when they are finished because they keep calling to me and I find it sooo difficult to resist πŸ˜‰
