Cinnabon Copycat Recipe (2024)

Posted on Published:

This Cinnabon Copycat Recipe is one amazing recipe that is easy and super delish. Perfect for breakfast, dessert or snack. If you love cinnabon’s you’ll love this.

Instructions

1. First, make the dough. If you have a bread machine that is the easiest way. Or you can hand mix it or use a kitchen aid. We hand mixed and kneaded it ourselves—but a bread machine would’ve resulted in a better dough. When using your bread machine follow the manufacturer instructions.

If you make the dough yourself then add the yeast to warm/hot milk (at least 100 F) mix. Add eggs, margarine, salt, sugar, and flour. Stir and knead well. While kneading it, turn the oven on to 200 F.

When the dough is ready turn the oven off and covers the dough in with a damp paper towel, put the bowl in the oven and let rise till double the size (one hour).

Be sure to use margarine and bread flour for best results (ingredients are below).

3. Refrigerate the frosting. Then prep the area where you plan to roll out the dough. Clean and dry the surface well. Sprinkle with flour and have flour nearby to use while rolling the dough out.

4. Once the dough is ready turn it out on the prepared surface, cover it with a towel and let it rest 10 minutes.

5. Roll the dough into 16x 21 rectangle.

6. Melt and spread butterover it. Sprinkle evenly with the cinnamon sugar mix. And roll over it so it stays in place. Leave 1/4 inch of the outside long edge clear of butter and cinnamon sugar so it will adhere well and stick dough-to-dough when rolling them up.

7. Then use dental floss and wrap under and pull to cut into 12 equal pieces (the kids were helping so we didn’t get equal pieces—oh well).Cinnabon Copycat Recipe (6)

8. Lightly grease a 9×13 baking pan/glass dish and cover until the rolls have risen to twice their size. You can also use a cookie sheet if you want them to stand alone and not have square edges.

9. Bake at 400 F for 20 minutes or until brown. If you don’t like a doughy roll make sure the dough has risen and doubled in size before putting them in the oven and that the rolls are baked well before removing them from the oven.
