For the Dough
  • 1 cup warm milk
  • 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
For the Filling
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup butter softened
For the Frosting
  • 1 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup butter softened
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  1. Place the dough ingredients into the pan of the bread machine. (I usually just put them in the order that they appear on the list above, but if I am waiting for eggs to warm up a bit or if I am still melting butter, I just add them however I feel like it.)
  2. Select dough cycle & press START.
  3. When your dough cycle is done (mine takes about 90 minutes) pull the dough out and place it on a lightly floured surface. Cover with a towel and let it sit for 10 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, combine brown sugar and cinnamon for the filling in a small bowl.
  5. Roll the dough into a 16x21-inch rectangle. Spread 1/3 cup butter on top and sprinkle evenly with sugar/cinnamon mixture.
  6. Roll up dough and cut into 1 inch rolls.
  7. Place the cinnamon rolls in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking pan. Cover with plastic wrap and let them rise for about 30 minutes or until nearly doubled.
  8. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  9. Bake the cinnamon rolls in a preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
  10. While rolls are baking, beat together cream cheese, 1/4 cup butter, powdered sugar, vanilla extract and salt.
  11. Spread frosting onto warm cinnamon rolls before serving.
