Cake Mix Cinnamon Rolls

Can you believe it's been 3 years already?!?  Happy blog-a-versary to me!  To celebrate I thought I would share a yummy recipe I thought was quite clever. It uses a cake mix to make irresistable cinnamon rolls.  They're not only clever, they're extrememly easy.  The thick, gooey frosting is amazing.  So, get out a cake mix and celebrate!  Enjoy :)

CAKE MIX CINNAMON ROLLS
1 box butter recipe yellow cake mix
5 cups flour
2 pkg. dry yeast
2 1/2 cups warm water
1 cup very soft butter
1 cup sugar mixed with 2 TBSP cinnamon

Grease 2- 9x13 pans (this makes 24 rolls).  Combine cake mix, flour and yeast in a very large bowl.  Mix well.  Add water and blend until completely moistened.  Cover with a towl and let rise until doubled.  Roll in large rectangle (I did this in 2 batches), slather with butter and douse with cinnamon and sugar.  Roll up, cut into 24 rolls, place in greased pans and let rise again until doubled.  Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until golden.  While still warm (but not hot) drizzle with frosting.

FROSTING
4 cups powdered sugar
4 TBSP melted butter
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup milk

Mix until smooth.

Thank you for this recipe! My kiddos are always begging for cinnamon rolls and if I don't have Pillsbury, I'm like sorry we're out! The recipes I've looked into look kind of daunting, but this looks easy enough! I think I'll try it.

Happy belated blog-a-versary ! This recipe looks so good. I've adverted making cinnamon rolls before but these look like something even I can make.

Yummmm...these sound delicious. I'm thinking the addition of the cake mix makes for a nice tender crumb. I'll bet just about any flavor cake mix would work well, too. Thank you for sharing. This is a fun recipe.

Happy blog-anniversary. Looking forward to many more of your recipes.

I am eating these as I type getting my keyboard a mess! So delicious! I promised my kiddos these for breakfast, but ended up being a before dinner snack as I forgot about all the rising time...but they were worth the wait! Love 'em.

fantastic submit, very informative. I wonder why the opposite specialists of this sector do not realize this. You should continue your writing. I am sure, you have a great readers' base already!
