Fluffy Cinnamon Rolls

This is truly a fluffy cinnamon roll recipe that hasn’t failed me ever since I started making it. An easy to work with dough is smothered in butter and sprinkled with a sweet sugar mix then rolled and baked into the most amazing and fluffy rolls!

If you can whisk together a few components and let a mixer do the mixing than I am sure you can make these yeast rolls. I strongly encourage you to try this recipe as it’s not that complicated and of coarse theres nothing that compares to freshly baked cinnamon rolls from scratch. If you like those big glazed cinnamon rolls from bakery shops than you need to try making these because I really don’t see a big difference with the bakery versions after making a batch of these.

    1. Yes, just try to dissolve the yeast in warm water before adding to everything in the bread machine and set everything on dough settings:)
