Another Partner for Cream Cheese Frosting

The local Costco sells yummy pans of cinnamon rolls topped with cream cheese frosting. Since I had some frosting left over from making carrot muffins, I decided to make some cinnamon rolls too. I found this recipe on the internet quite a few years back. It claims to be a copy cat recipe for Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls. Since I've never (at least I don't think I have) had a Cinnabon Cinnamon Roll I cannot comment on whether they taste like them or not.....but they are good:)

Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls in the Bread Machine

1 cup milk
1 egg, beaten
4 tbsp melted butter
1/2 box instant vanilla pudding (3.4 oz or 92g box)
4 cups bread flour (I used 3 1/2 cups as previous batch seemed too dry)
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 tsp bread machine yeast

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup raisins

Place all ingredients for the dough in your bread machine in the order recommended by your manufacturer. Place the pan in the machine. Slect the dough cycle and press start. When the cycle is finished, remove the dough, knead enough to punch down and roll to 17 X 10". Combine the first three filling ingredients and mix well. Heat in the microwave 10 seconds or less to make it spreadable. Spread over the rolled out dough with rubber spatula. Set as close to the edges as possible. Sprinkle with nuts or raisins if using. Starting with widest side, roll the dough into a tight log. Sut into 1/2 inch to 1 inch slices. Place ina lightly greased baking pan with sides. Put in a warm draft free place and allow to rise until double. Heat oven to 350F. Bake for 15-20 minutes. When the rolls are done top with the frosting of your choice. This time I used Aunt Pat's Yummy Cream Cheese Frosting from this post.

That looks good! I have never tried pudding in a recipe like that so I might give it a try. I also don't use a bread machine but I don't think that will make a difference. Yours looks great :*)

No, it wouldn't make any difference. I just use the bread machine because I'm lazy:)
