So for my first post let's start with my first job Cinnabon making them for 4 years and still got the skills 17 years later. Not the exact same ingredients but the closest I have come to and taste exactly the same.
Step 1
1 1/2cup warm milk (110 deg. F)
3 eggs, room temp
1/3 cup butter melted
6 3/4 cups bread flour
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon and 3/4 teaspoons bread machine yeast
Step 2
1 1/2 cups brown sugar packed
3 tablespoons and 2 1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 cup butter room temp
Step 3
1 1/2 (3 ounce) packages cream cheese softened
1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons butter softened
2 1/4 cups confectioners sugar
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
1. Place ingredients in step 1 per bread machines recommended order set dough cycle and press start. If using a mixer place dry ingredients in mixer with dough hook and mix on low for 3 mins, add in wet ingredients and mix on low 1 min till dough starts to form. Then medium speed till dough ball forms and no longer sticks to the sides. Take out dough and knead a few times place in a clear plastic trash bag. Squeeze out as much air as you can and let it sit on counter till it doubles in size.
2. In mixer use paddle or by hand mix Brown sugar and cinnamon till combined.
3. After dough has doubled in size roll dough out into a rectangle 28"x20".
4. Spread softened butter on dough, but be careful and DO NOT get any butter on the bottom 1" of the dough.
5. Spread brown sugar cinnamon mix on dough, again NOT on bottom 1" of dough.
6. Roll rolling pin over to press and flatten brown sugar mix.
7. Fold 1/2" of the top of the dough. Then roll up the dough stretching it slightly with each roll. Roll in the edges towards the center to keep log straight. Bottom part that has no butter will seal the roll from opening .
8. Mark roll every 2 1/4" starting just on edge (edges will be cut off). Cut 12 rolls and place evenly in baking pan 9"x13" lightly greased or lined with parchment paper. Cover and let them rise until almost double in size. In the mean time preheat oven to 400 deg. F.
9. Bake rolls in preheated oven till golden brown, about 15 minutes. While rolls are baking beat together 4 1/2 ounces cream cheese, 1/4 cup butter, 2 1/4cups confectioners sugar, 3/4 teaspoon vanilla, and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Spread frosting on rolls right out of the oven.
10. ENJOY!!!
