Cinnamon buns

Captain's Log, Supplemental

All I can say is, I’m in such trouble.

I have discovered this bread machine recipe for cinnamon rolls. It is incredibly easy (I even substituted ¾ cup water and 2 T dry milk with ¾ cup milk instead, to make things even easier for me).

It took 5 minutes to throw the ingredients in the bread machine. It took only 10 minutes to roll the dough out (it was incredibly malleable and easy to roll) and slather it with the cinnamon and sugar and butter paste. I popped those suckers out of the oven after only 20 minutes bake time and drizzled with icing made with powdered sugar, hot water from my electric hot pot, and butter melted in the microwave.

They were SO GOOD.

Notice the past tense. Yup, there is only one roll left, and that’s for Captain Caffeine’s breakfast. I made these on Tuesday and today’s … Thursday? We’re completely addicted. I don’t even want to think about the number of calories in each one.

I’m making some tonight for writer’s group meeting! Bwahahahahahahaha …


  1. I think the only reason you would need to use the powdered milk and water instead, is if you had it on a delay. For example, you wouldn't want sour milk sitting in the bread machine all night. Ick. ;-)

  2. Oh, yum!
    I printed off the recipe~ now I'll have to dig my bread machine out (it's in hiding!)~ I think my 13-year-old daughter will enjoy trying these!
    Thanks for sharing.

  3. I am SOOOOO going to ignore this post, that recipe and those buns!

    I ate one larger than that every morning when pregnant with my first son. Had to have it.

    Those were dark days.

    I'm praying for you.

    Moving on...

  4. Thank you so much for this recipe! I printed it out and my sister made them over the weekend. Yummmmmmmmm!

  5. Am I glad I don't have a bread machine? Hmmm. Let me think about it. (Of course, they could probably be made without the machine....and maybe the sugar replaced with granulated sugar alcohol...but I wonder what they'd taste like if made with whole wheat flour...probably way too wheaty!)
