Cinnabon Copycat Recipe

Cinnabon Copycat Recipe

This is one amazing recipe. If you love Cinnabon’s you’ll love this.

First, make the dough. If you have a bread machine that is the easiest way. Or you can hand mix it or use a kitchen aid. We hand mixed and kneaded it ourselves—but a bread machine would’ve resulted in a better dough. when using your bread machine follow the manufacturer instructions.

If you make the dough yourself then add the yeast to warm/hot milk (at least 100 F) mix. Add eggs, margarine, salt, sugar, and flour. Stir and knead well. While kneading it, turn oven on to 200 F. When the dough is ready turn the oven off and cover the dough in with a damp paper towel, put the bowl in the oven and let rise till double the size (one hour).

Be sure to use margarine and bread flour for best results (ingredients are below).

While the dough is rising make this AMAZING cream cheese frosting (the best) here.

Refrigerate the frosting. Then prep the area where you plan to roll out the dough. Clean and dry the surface well. Sprinkle with flour and have flour nearby to use while rolling the dough out.

Once the dough is ready turn it out on the prepared surface, cover it with a towel and let it rest 10 minutes.

Roll the dough into 16x 21 rectangle.

Melt and spread butter over it. Sprinkle evenly with the cinnamon sugar mix. And roll over it so it stays in place. Leave 1/4 inch of the outside long edge clear of butter and cinnamon sugar so it will adhere well and stick dough-to-dough when rolling them up.

Then use dental floss and wrap under and pull to cut into 12 equal pieces (the kids were helping so we didn’t get equal pieces—oh well).

Lightly grease an 9×13 baking pan/glass dish and cover until the rolls have risen to twice their size. You can also use a cookie sheet if you want them to stand alone and not have square edges.

Bake at 400 F for 20 minutes or until brown. If you don’t like a doughy roll make sure the dough has risen and doubled in size before putting them in the oven and that the rolls are baked well before removing them from the oven.

Spread the frosting on the rolls when they are hot and it will melt into the roll. Once they are cooled top them with another dab of frosting.

  1. YUM! It’s been way too long since I’ve had a cinnamon roll. Homemade is always better and I’m excited to try this – and have my little ones help! XO

  2. Casey says:

    Your recipe calls for 1/3 cup of margarine twice but you never mention where/when to use it?

    • Anita Fowler says:

      My bad! I’m so sorry. I fixed it. You add it when you make the dough. Then the butter is used to spread over the flour before sprinkling with the brown sugar. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

  3. Ahh this just made me so excited. I love Cinnabons, and the ability to make it at ahome? YES.

  4. Jhuls says:

    Made these by hand without a breadmaker. Quite a bit of work but paid off! Best cinnamon rolls I’ve ever had. Thank you so much. Definitely sharing this with friends!

  7. RGoe says:

    I don’t understand turn oven on to 200 when dough is ready turn oven off ,cover dough with damp towel let rise 1 hour. Do I put it in the oven to let it rise?

  8. Wendy Malachowski says:

    Can you make these the night before you want to bake them?

  9. Debbie says:

    Doubled the recipe as I make these to hand out. So far the dough is so dry and tough.. Mixed it in my kitchen aid just till mixed then it was so dry and crumbled I had to hand knead it. It is in oven to rise bow but they are like lead balls.. Hopefully not a waste of ingredients.. Will update when done
