These delicious, easy to make cinnamon buns need a little help from your bread machine. They are started in the bread machine, then they're rolled, sliced, and baked. They're made with a buttery cinnamon filling, with optional raisins or pecans.

What You'll Need

  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup softened butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons dry milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons yeast
  • Filling: 
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar, mixed with 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans or raisins, optional
  • Icing: 
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons hot water
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar

How to Make It

Add ingredients according to manufacturer's suggested order and set on dough cycle. Turn onto lightly floured board. Roll out to a rectangle about 10 x 18 inches. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar mixture and pecans, if used. Starting at long end, carefully roll up; pinch seams together. Measure and cut 1-inch slices. Place cut side up on a buttered baking sheet. Cover with a slightly dampened towel and let rise in a warm place for about 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Bake at 375° for 15 minutes, or until browned. Drizzle with the icing (below), or your own favorite glaze or icing.


Melt butter in a medium saucepan; add hot water and vanilla. Remove from heat then stir in confectioners' sugar. Add more hot water, 1/2 to 1 teaspoon at a time, until desired consistency.
