Cake Mix Cinnamon Rolls
We’ve been craving freshly baked, frosting-covered cinnamon rolls for the last two weeks straight… so we decided it was time to hit the test kitchen to make ’em with some Miss Jones! Within minutes of putting these sweet, perfectly spiced little spirals into the oven, we had a crowd in the kitchen, so consider yourself warned.Luckily our recipe bakes up 2 pans worth of these incredible cinnamon rolls, so there’s plenty to share. Let’s roll!
3 1/2 cups flour
1 packet rapid rise yeast
1 1/2 cups warm water
1 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup melted butter or coconut oil
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the dough hook, combine cake mix, flour, and yeast. Add in water slowly on low speed until the dough forms a ball around the hook, 3-4 minutes. Continue to mix on medium speed until the dough is very smooth, 3-4 more minutes.
Transfer the dough to another lightly oiled bowl and let rise in a warm place, covered, for 45 minutes-1 hour. Punch the dough down, and split dough in half. Form back into a ball and cover again for 20-30 minutes.
While the dough is resting, prepare the filling. In a medium-size bowl, mix together cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar until well combined. Melt the butter or coconut oil.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a large 9×13-inch baking dish with melted butter.
Working with one ball of a dough at a time, flour your work surface and hands and gently turn out the dough onto it. Roll dough out into a large rectangle, about 1/8 – 1/4 inch thick. With a pastry brush or spatula, brush entire surface with 2 tablespoons of the melted butter or coconut oil. Sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar mixture.
Roll up the dough (with the longest side closest to you) into a very tight spiral. Cut the finished spiraled roll into 12 even pieces. Place the rolls in the greased baking dish.
Loosely cover finished rolls with plastic wrap and let the rolls rise in a warm place for 25-30 minutes. (Repeat steps 5-6 with remaining ball of dough)
Bake cinnamon rolls for 25-30 minutes or until top is golden brown.
When the rolls are finished baking, let them cool in the pan completely. Top ‘em with some Miss Jones Organic Vanilla Frosting just before serving for the PERFECT cinnamon roll experience.
