Distinctive coffee flavor accents the filling of these ooey, gooey rolls. The glaze goes on while they are still warm—they won’t last long!. —Sherri Cox, Lucasville, Ohio

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the warm milk, buttermilk, sugar, butter, salt and 4 cups flour. Beat on medium speed until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down; turn onto a floured surface. Roll into an 18-in. x 12-in. rectangle; brush with butter. Combine the brown sugar, coffee granules and cinnamon; sprinkle over dough to within 1/2 in. of edges.
  4. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Cut into 12 slices. Place rolls, cut side down, in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  5. Bake at 350° for 22-28 minutes or until golden brown. Place pan on a wire rack. In a small bowl, beat the icing ingredients until smooth. Spread over rolls. Serve warm. Yield: 1 dozen.

These are literally 'eye rolling' good! Our family loves coffee, and this recipe is a perfect combination of flavors. This recipe is a keeper!

We make these often for guests and have only received rave reviews. This is our favorite cinnamon roll recipe. Sometimes we add cream cheese to the frosting recipe. So delicious mixed with the cappuccino!

I didn't think these were any better than other cinnamon roll recipes I tried. I didn't find that the cappucino flavoring led to any improvement, so I'll just stick with "normal" cinnamon rolls in the future.

Only cinnamon rolls I've ever made...I have no reason to make any others, these are delicious!!!

Best cinnamon rolls ever! I used cream cheese frosting instead of what the recipe called for, and added a little instant coffee to the milk before adding it to the sugar and cream cheese. Delicious!
