I've only had "real" Cinnabon cinnamon rolls one time. A homemade version is much more my thing! While butter isn't on my list of "affordable groceries", going to Cinnabons certainly isn't on my list of cheap ways to feed my family!
I'll buy some extra butter and make my own Cinnabons... and if you like decadent cinnamon rolls, these Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls qualify. ;)
I got this recipe from my friend Lindsey. Lindsey has the best recipes! These cinnamon rolls are so, so good. I really like my mom's cinnamon rolls, which has always been our go-to recipe, but these Cinnabon cinnamon rolls are so fluffy, sweet, and they have that great vanilla flavor from the pudding mix. I much prefer homemade pudding to pudding-mix pudding, but I'll gladly get a pudding mix to use in this recipe! ;)
We made these Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls and Joshua took a dish of them to work for everyone to try for breakfast. They were quickly devoured!
The gooey sweet bottom of the Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls!
If you have a bread machine, these rolls are even easier. I over-loaded my Zojirushi with a double batch... not recommended, as it was really too full!
Without a bread machine, you're committing to get your hands sticky and get a little workout doing the kneading (but not nearly enough of a workout to make up for eating these cinnamon rolls).
These rolls are so soft, fluffy, and chewy. They really are the best cinnamon rolls I've ever made!
We love desserts that are, well, all out desserts. I probably won't be able to find very many opportunities to justify making a batch of these cinnamon rolls, because I like them way too much. If you want to amaze your guests, or earn a few brownie points with your family, try these Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls! :)
