Cinnamon Buns with Maple Glaze

Flaky, buttery, and loaded with cinnamon and sugar! In honor of maple syrup season , these ones are topped with a maple glaze.

One bite and you will think immediately of the flavor associated with Cinnabon! Now you can make your faves at home and bypass the visit to the mall.

The best thing about these cinnamon buns? The dough is made in the bread maker!


These are ready for the 2nd rising process

Fresh out of the oven

Glazed and ready to be eaten!

I use a large serving fork to help get these guys out of their baking dish



A bread maker with a dough setting
9X13" baking dish


1 large egg at room temperature
1 1/4 cups warm water (80F or 27C)
3 1/2 teaspoons oil (plain vegetable oil works best. I used Becel)
1/3 cup granulated white sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3 1/2 cups white bread flour
2 teaspoons active dry yeast (I use the type marked for bread maker use)


1/2 cup unsalted melted butter (+ 2 tablespoons, melted and set aside)
1/4 cup fine white sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
3 teaspoons ground cinnamon


4 tablespoons melted butter
1 cup sifted icing sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon maple syrup extract
4 tablespoons heavy cream


GREASE baking dish (I melt 2 tablespoons of butter for this and brush it all over the inside of the dish)

IN YOUR BREAD MAKER, ADD all dough ingredients in the exact order as listed above.
SELECT Dough course and press Start

ONCE the dough course is complete, liberally sprinkle a work surface with flour
PLACE dough on work surface and roll out to a large rectangle (12" x 16")

Filling Ingredients: BRUSH melted butter on dough leaving 1/2 " edge on all sides
COMBINE sugars and cinnamon together in a bowl, sprinkle all over buttered area
STARTING with longest side, ROLL up dough tightly to form a log
WITH SHARP KNIFE, cut rolls in 1 1/2" slices
PLACE rolls in baking dish
BRUSH the 2 tablespoons of melted butter over the rolls
COVER with a clean tea towel and let rise in a warm area for 30 minutes
PREHEAT oven to 350F
REMOVE towel and BAKE in oven for 25 minutes.

ALLOW buns to rest in baking dish at room temperature on cooling rack for 5 minutes
COMBINE all icing ingredients and blend until smooth
BRUSH glaze over tops of warm buns

ENJOY !!!!

  3. Homemade cinnamon buns are such a fun treat. Especially on the weekend when you can just sit back and enjoy.

    Thanks for linking up with Sweet Tooth Friday!

  4. Glad you are all enjoying these :)

  5. Your cinnamon rolls are perfect:)

  6. Thanks for your lovely comments :)

  7. Oh man, these sound incredible. I wish I didn't have to work tomorrow and I could make these first thing in the morning! Does the bread rise in the bread machine during the dough cycle? Also, do you remember how thick you leave the dough when you roll it out?

  8. @Jenn - yes, just let the cycle run its course. The bread machine will knead it and then let it rest and rise. Just wait for the beep :). Stick with the dimensions I gave above when rolling it out versus worrying about thickness. If you aim for the 12X16 dimensions then you will be fine

  9. Linda, thank you so much, I can't wait to try these!


Thank you for your comments!
