Easy Bread Machine Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

We’ve been making these bread machine cinnamon rolls for almost a decade in our family, and they never get old. It took me many failed attempts to find this perfect cinnamon rolls recipe, but they’ve been a hit in our house ever since.

And my favorite part of these homemade cinnamon rolls is that they usually only take a total of about 20 minutes of effort to pull off since you make them in the bread machine. That’s my kind of recipe! 😉

We’ve made these easy cinnamon rolls over and over again throughout the years, and my husband and kids still get excited every time we whip up a batch on a lazy Saturday morning! And over the years, the kids have learned how to make these and love helping out with them.

    This is my go to cinnamon roll recipe!!! Love this!!

  • Renee says:

    I have used this recipe of yours for years — it is a crowd favorite !!!

  • Kayren says:

    Is the amount of filling listed before or after doubling?

    • Jo says:

      I typically just eyeball the filling and don’t measure anything because I’ve made these so many times, but what is listed is not doubled. So if you want a lot of filling, I’d recommend doubling it. It might feel too cinnamon-y if you use two whole Tablespoons of cinnamon, though, unless you really like cinnamon! 🙂

    We’ve also been making this recipe for about 10 years since you first posted it! Everyone loves, loves, loves these! They’re my go-to for neighbor Christmas presents, and also the main reason I am still keeping my bread maker 😉 Thanks for posting so many years ago! (side note- we live at a high altitude (just under 7000′) and they still turn out perfect!)

  • Liz says:

    This is my favorite cinnamon roll recipe, and I’ve used it so much ever since you first posted it! In fact, it’s the recipe all our kids vote for unanimously every year on Christmas morning. 🙂

  • Nikki says:

    This has been my go to recipe since you first posted it. We make it for all the special occasions. I was just getting ready to pull out your recipe to whip up several batches for all of our children’s ministry volunteers at our church later this month. Thanks for sharing!

  • B says:

    I’m yet another long time reader who has been using this recipe since 2011. Love it! Thanks for sharing then and again.

  • Mylynda Levine-Smith says:

    I love to cook. Unfortunately, I am not all that great at baking(too many rules and regulations for me). HOWEVER, I tried this years ago when you first posted it. This recipe is so easy, even for an amateur baker like me. It has totally redeemed me with my kids. I may not be able to make something as simple as a pancake but the kids love Mamma’s cinnamon rolls thanks to you, Crystal!! Glad to see you posting it again to share with all of your new readers. Ladies, don’t be afraid to try this recipe out. It’s definitely a winner!

    • Jo says:

      Oh yay! I love to hear that you’ve found this recipe to be easy and simple — and that it has brought so much joy to your kids!

  • Jay Kay says:

    These look yummy! Two quesstions: any adjustments needed tko mak3 them without a bread machine, and do they have to rise a few minutes before baking?

    • Cammie says:

      Haven’t made these in years because I don’t have a bread machine any longer. Made them for my son’s birthday breakfast this morning with my Kitchenaid and dough hook. Just kneaded it for about 5 minutes. Delicious as always! Thanks for reposting this recipe!!

  • Nancy Olson says:

    I also want to know if these need to rise before baking? Thanks! Looking forward to trying this. I have a cinnamon roll crazed teen.

  • Kim says:

    These look delicious! Do you use all purpose flour?

  • Kim says:

    Also – what kind of yeast do you use? Bread machine yeast? Thank you for posting this yummy recipe!

  • Linda says:

    Great recipe! My family thinks they are awesome!
