Directions For Cinnamon Rolls Bread Machine Recipe:

Step 1 Of Cinnamon Rolls Recipe – Make The Dough In The Bread Machine

Warm the milk in the microwave until warm (but not hot).  Pour the milk in the bread machine.

Next, warm the water in the microwave until just warm (but not hot).  Pour the water in the bread machine.

Melt the butter in the microwave and pour it in the bread machine.

Crack the eggs into a bowl.  Pour the eggs into the bread machine.

Add the flour to the bread machine.  Put the sugar in one corner of the bread machine on top of the flour.  Put the salt in another corner of the bread machine.  Put the yeast in another corner of the bread machine.

Set the bread machine to the Dough cycle and press Start.

When the bread machine Dough cycle is finished (usually after 1 hour 30 minutes), the bread machine will beep.  Take the dough out of the bread machine and move on to Step 2.

Step 2 Of Cinnamon Rolls Recipe – Assemble The Rolls

Sprinkle some flour on the counter where you’ll be rolling the dough, so the dough doesn’t stick to the counter.  Sprinkle some flour on top of the dough, so the dough doesn’t stick to the rolling pin.

Roll out the dough into a rectangle that’s 12 x 16 inches in size.

Mix the 1/3 cup of sugar and 2 tbsp of cinnamon in a cup.

Brush the dough rectangle with milk.  Evenly sprinkle the dough with the cinnamon and sugar mixture.  Sprinkle the raisins evenly over the cinnamon.

Roll the dough into a roll, beginning with the long side of the rectangle (the roll should be 16 inches long).

Cut the roll into 12 parts with the serrated knife (to make the parts even, cut the roll first in half, then cut each half in half, then cut each quarter in thirds – and you’ll have 12 even pieces).

Spray the 9×13 inch baking dish with a cooking spray.  Put the 12 cinnamon roll pieces in that baking dish.

Step 3 Of Cinnamon Rolls Recipe – Let The Rolls Rise:

Cover the baking dish with the cinnamon rolls with the plastic wrap, and leave on the counter for 1 hour.  The rolls should increase in size until they are touching.  After the rolls rise, move onto the next step.

Step 4 Of Cinnamon Rolls Recipe – Bake The Rolls:

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Remove the plastic wrap from the baking dish.  Put the cinnamon rolls in the oven and bake for 30 minutes.

Step 5 Of Cinnamon Rolls Recipe – Put Icing On The Rolls:

Mix 1 1/4 cup of powdered sugar and 3 tbsp of milk in a small bowl.  Keep mixing until the icing is smooth.  Spread the icing over the cinnamon rolls. 

Enjoy your freshly baked cinnamon rolls!
