Cinnabon Roll Muffin Cup Recipe

I took the easy way out of making cinnamon rolls or the #copycat #cinnabon. I used a muffin tin to make uniform rolls and then poured the frosting over them. Boy were these addicting. I ate alot more than I wanted to trust me they are awesome!

While still warm I drizzle the frosting over the tops and just make a fine glaze

A much neater and easier to eat way to make rolls!

Cinnabon Roll Muffin Cup Recipe

1/2 cup warm milk place in microwave for 30 seconds
2 eggs room temperature
1/3 cup butter melted
4 1/2 cups all purpose flour or bread flour ( I have used both the bread flour makes them much lighter in texture which I prefer)
2 packages dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup white sugar

In a large mixer dissolve yeast in the warm water. Add the milk, butter, salt, eggs and half the flour beat until smooth. Add remaining flour and using dough hook continue beating till smooth and elastic.  Cover with plastic wrap, place in a warm place and let rise till doubled.

1 cup brown sugar
 2 1/2 tablespoons cinnamon
1/2 cup softened butter

Mix all together. 

Roll out dough into a large triangle. Spread filling onto the dough and roll like a jelly roll. Slice into 2 inch or more spacing them out and placing into oil sprayed muffin tins. You can also just place them spaced apart on the parchment lined deep cookie sheet ( I prefer the muffin pan for the uniform sizing.)

Drizzle with frosting below made with or without cream cheese.


1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup butter
pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
water to make a drizzle style frosting ( do not add if using cream cheese) I opted to do the drizzle my family isn't fond of cream cheese frosting.

Optional Note: 1- 3 ounce package cream cheese room temperature

Mix all together then without the water to make a spread. Spread over warm muffins.
