Ingredients

  • 4 to 5 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1 box (9 ounces) one-layer white cake mix
  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) quick-rise yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups warm water (120° to 130°)
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon

Directions

In a large mixing bowl, combine 3 cups flour, cake mix, yeast, salt and warm water; mix until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth, about 6-8 minutes. Roll dough into a 9-in. x 18-in. rectangle. Spread with butter and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Roll dough jelly-roll style, starting with the long end. Slice the roll into 1-in. circles; place on greased cookie sheets. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 15 minutes. Bake at 350° for 15-18 minutes. Frost, if desired. Yield: 18 rolls.

"I have made this recipe for so many years. I love the sweetness that the cake mix adds and it also helps to keep the rolls softer and more moist! This is a winning recipe!"

"These were pretty good and they certainly satisfied my pregnancy craving for cinnamon rolls, but my husband, brother and I could tell they were made from a cake mix rather than from scratch. By that I mean there was a much more subtle taste and the rolls were a little more dense. Overall though, good!"

"I wanted a quick cinnamon roll recipe that I could make and take for our Sunday School Class. Decided to give this a try and they were fabulous! Only adjustment I may make is to use warmed milk rather than water next time. But I see lots of these rolls in my family's future!"

"I have made these cinnamon rolls SO many times and have never been disappointed in the results. I have been asked many times if I take orders for them! My family loves them, and they are so easy to make I never say no when my 9 year old asks for them on a Saturday morning."
