Clone of a Cinnabon

Sunday's are normally pancake days in our home. My favorite pancake recipe to follow is on allrecipes.com and is called Fluffy Pancakes. I ended up making these on Saturday this last weekend and Sunday I made these cinnamon rolls in the photos. I have always loved homemade cinnamon rolls and the craving hits after I saw Mindi's post on her blog Mindika Moments of her Grandmother's cinnamon rolls. Once I saw those rolls, I knew I had to make some.

Grumpy was still sleeping when I threw this in the bread machine to start the dough. By the time he was out of bed I had the rolls in the oven. It takes about 3 hours from start to finish to make these (yes, I was up at 5 AM on a Sunday morning). I halved the recipe because I didn't want a huge amount of cinnamon rolls in the house calling my name. Right now there are only 6 left. Grumpy had two while I had one. These rolls had great reviews on allrecipes.com - 5 stars with over 3,000 reviews. Can't go wrong there. For the recipe click HERE.

Oh! Make sure you come back tomorrow. I will be announcing my 2 year blog anniversary giveaway and will have some special gifts!
