  1. Dissolve yeast in warm water and let stand until creamy, about ten minutes. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix and flour. Slowly add the yeast and water mixture and stir until smooth. Cover the bowl and let dough rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.
  2. Grease a 10x15 inch baking pan with high sides, or two 9x13 inch pans. With a spatula, scoop the dough out onto a heavily floured surface. Dust the top and roll or pat the dough into a large rectangle, about 12x24 inches. Brush dough with the melted butter or margarine. Combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and sprinkle over the dough. Roll up dough jelly roll fashion and seal edge with a little water. Cut the roll into 1 1/2 to 2 inch slices. Place snugly into the prepared pan. Let rise in a warm place for about 1/2 hour or until doubled.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C)
  4. While rolls are rising, combine butter or margarine, corn syrup and brown sugar in a heavy saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until smooth. Remove from heat. When rolls have risen, pour the syrup over the tops of the rolls, letting it dribble down into the pan. Sprinkle rolls with pecans and bake at 350 degrees F (175 degree C) for 25 minutes or until golden brown.

I used a yellow cake mix, and the recipe came out wonderful! However, I think I fit them too snuggly in the pan, I would allow for "some" room.

The syrup made the rolls burn on the bottom before they were cooked through. Also the flavor was bland.

I'm not sure if I like these as well as "cake mix cinnamon rolls" recipe here on Allrecipes. Both are similar and come out perfect texture; except the topping method is different. I had a BUTT...

I didnt care for these but sent them with my husband to work where they lasted about 10 minuets and people LOVED them.

These were OK - I made the rolls exactly as stated - They weren't bad - but they weren't the kind of texture that I like from a cinnamon roll. I like dense heavy dough and these were very cakey ...

WOW DELICIOUS FOR SURE!! this is my new cinnamon roll recipe. I added 1 T oil and 1 egg...not sure how they would of been w/o them but thought they might require it.. I used no sugar on the insi...

I made two batches of these for Christmas, one with a doubled recipe of the gooey topping, and a second pan with creamy frosting. Both were a hit. And unlike most other sweet rolls I have made...

I love this recipe. It is easy and works well. I have had to add more flour every time (1/2 cup at a time until right consistency). The other thing I do is make a brown sugar and butter glaze...

This is an amazing recipe! They are tasty, easy, and everyone I have made them for loves them. I had to put them in both 9x13 pans, but one wasn't all the way full, and in that one that toppin...
