Aside from the bread machine to help you out with the dough, you might want another hand, and luckily your kids can do it!

I had my son, Rhett, who helped me make these rolls tonight. Just a tip after making these yummy cinnamon rolls, don’t just wash your kid’s hands but legs too.

Step 1

Mix and put all the ingredients in the bread machine to make the dough. I used this white bread recipe because it can just be thrown into the bread machine and set for the white bread manual setting and left there for hours…

  1. I like how your bread machine clearly calls itself “The Bread Machine” so it doesn’t get confused with the crock pot or steamer or rice cooker. Mine says nothing & is frequently mistaken for a rice cooker.

    The rolls look delicious!

  2. Oh yummy…they look so good! My weight resolution is restricting me from making them however.

  3. Oh that looks wonderful….Now just to have a bread machine to help with the work….alas….ha ha
    But I do have my cuppa coffee and would like one with the cream cheese icing please.

  4. Now I’m searching high and low for that bread machine! 😀 I may have a weight loss resolution this year, but I guess it wouldn’t hurt to at least try this one first? lol. But first, let me get that bread machine before I’ll change my mind. 🙂

    Happy new year to you and your family, Thanks for sharing. 🙂

  5. Why must you tempt me? I’m trying to lose 10 pounds here! Well…not here….but…you know…

  6. Yum! Tip for slicing – use a clean piece of fishing line or unflavored dental floss. Slip it under your roll. Hold one end in each hand. Cross right over left and pull. Perfect slices – no smushing. And a five year old would love it. 🙂

  7. Sounds too easy! I frequently make at least 2 times the recipe in my Better homes and Garden cookbook, sometimes 4 times the recipe. Kneading that much dough is where a 17 yr old wrestler/son comes in handy. 🙂

  8. Nom Nom 😉

    I love your helper 😉 apparently, I need a bread machine.

  9. Sandra, remember to buy missing bread-maker blade…Sandra, remember to buy missing…

  10. YUMMY! It’s a double-win when food is delicious AND beautiful!

  11. Will he make some for me too? : ) These look amazing!

  12. Hello
    Just wanted to let you know that I have mentioned this post on my blog eatcraftsow.blogspot.com. Please let me know if there is anything you wish for me to remove. Have a great day!!

  13. You are right…they are The Best! Thanks for inspiring me to get the bread machine out and running. Delicious recipe!

  14. Great kid in his age he can bake cinamon rolls but also with the help of bread machine.

    I made these by hand, I’m sure a bread maker would have been easier but it worked all the same. Recipe doubles nice too

    Forgot to mention I used all organic ingredients opting for coconut milk, and coconut sugar, and sea salt
