Whole Wheat Cinnamon Rolls

Our favorite Sunday morning breakfast is homemade cinnamon rolls.  I can mix these up on a Saturday afternoon, throw everything into the bread machine, and then have them rolled out and assembled in minutes.  With some fruit on the side, we can have a special breakfast without too much fuss.

So if you'd like to make your own whole wheat bread machine cinnamon rolls, here's what you do.

Dough Ingredients:
  • 1 c. + 2 T. warm milk
  • 3 T. melted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 4 c. white-wheat flour
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1 T. yeast
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 2 T. softened butter
  • sprinkling of cinnamon
  • 1 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 T. milk
  • dash of salt
  • 1 t. vanilla

  1. Put ingredients into bread machine pan in order listed.
  2. Select the 'dough' cycle.
  3. When the dough is mixed, roll out into a large rectangle.
  4. Spread the softened butter onto the dough.
  5. Sprinkle the brown sugar and cinnamon (to your liking) over the butter.
  6. Roll tightly.
  7. Slice into 3/4" rolls and place on a buttered cookie sheet.
  8. Bake at 325 degrees for about 20 minutes.
  9. Drizzle icing over the rolls immediately.
  10. Serve warm.
What's your favorite Sunday morning breakfast?

  1. These were great! I made a few changes, most significantly allowing for a second rising once they were filled, rolled, and sliced -- I put them into a very slightly warm oven for 30 mins before baking. I also added a few spoonsful of applesauce along with the butter + sugar + cinnamon, and I used 2.5 T of vital wheat gluten, and a mix of white and whole wheat flour -- I don't have any white-wheat flour & didn't feel like hitting the grocery store!
    But the point is, they were delicious, even without the icing (which I opted to skip, having had plenty of sweet Easter treats already today...) Thanks for a great and not-insanely-nutritionally-devastating recipe!
