    • 3 1/4 cups (485g) plain flour
    • 1 (7g) sachet instant yeast
    • 1/4 cup (55g) white sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 cup (60 ml) water
    • 1 egg
    • 1 cup (220g) brown sugar, packed

    1. Heat the milk in a small saucepan until it bubbles, then remove from heat. Mix in 1/4 cup margarine; stir until melted. Let cool until lukewarm.
    2. In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 1/4 cup flour, yeast, sugar and salt; mix well. Add water, egg and the milk mixture; beat well. Add the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring well after each addition. When the dough has just pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth, about 5 minutes.
    3. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let rest for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, cinnamon and 1/2 cup margarine.
    4. Roll out dough into a 30x22cm rectangle. Spread dough with margarine/sugar mixture. Sprinkle with raisins if desired. Roll up dough and pinch seam to seal. Cut into 12 equal size rolls and place cut side up in a greased 12-hole standard muffin pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 190 degrees C.
    5. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until browned. Remove from muffin cups to cool. Serve warm

    This is really a "no brainer" recipe! I was glad this one didn't explicitly mention using a bread machine. These were easy and delicious. I topped them off with a cream cheese icing. (1 1/2 cups powdered sugar, 1/2 cup softened margarine, 2 oz cream cheese, 1/2 teas vanilla, and 1/8 teas salt) YUM!  -  18 Mar 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Very easy and really took only 90 minutes! I tried them both with muffin pans and in an 11 inch square pan. I liked them better in the square pan, they were not as dry but they took longer to cook (about 30-35 minutes instead of 20).  -  02 Jan 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    The reviews say it all - this is an easy, delicious cinnamon roll recipe! Only thing I did differently was to melt extra butter, sugar and cinnamon to pour on top of the cinnamon rolls just before baking. They turned out very soft, sweet and gooey. Thanks for a great recipe!!  -  04 Nov 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
