“I like this recipe because it calls for at least 5 eggs, making it a definite egg bread. I used a bread machine to mix the dough. After the dough finished in the machine I took it out and prepared it to be made into rolls. I do make two batches of the caramel glaze. One to go on the bottom of the rolls and the other to cover the top. Extra gooey and you know the other. The rolls, when right out of the oven, are divine. Okay, I do wait for them to cool down a bit.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the ingredients for the dough into the bread machine as directed by the manufacturer. I let the dough go though the cycle until it has risen one time. At this point you can either punch the dough down and let the dough rest overnight in the refrigerator or go ahead and take the dough out of the machine and roll it out.
  2. When you roll out the dough cut the dough into two equal pieces and roll it out to 1/3" thickness.
  3. In a separate bowl mix together the cinnamon, sugar and softened butter. Sprinkle this mixture over the pieces of dough. Roll the dough up, reserving the neatest, straightest edge for the outside edge of the roll. Cut the rolls into 1 inch pieces and place them on a high sided baking pan. Cover them with a oiled piece of plastic wrap. Place the rolls in a warm spot to rise for at least an hour or until they have doubled in size. Uncover and bake at 350 degrees for about 10-12 minutes.
  4. To make the caramel glaze combine all the ingredients in a pot except vanilla. Cook and stir continuously until bubbly. Take off the heat and add vanilla. I like to make two batches. One for the bottom of the rolls and one for the top.
