Directions

  1. Combine 3 cups flour, cake mix, yeast, and salt in a large bowl; beat warm water into flour mixture until thoroughly combined. Mix remaining 1 cup flour into batter to make a soft dough.
  2. Turn dough out onto a floured work surface and knead until smooth, 6 to 8 minutes. Roll dough into a 9x18-inch rectangle. Spread softened butter over dough and sprinkle evenly with sugar and cinnamon. Roll dough into a log, starting with a long edge, and pinch edges together to seal.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
  4. Cut dough into 1-inch thick slices and arrange on prepared baking sheet. Cover rolls and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 15 minutes.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until cinnamon rolls are lightly browned and cooked through inside, 15 to 18 minutes.

I've had cinnamon rolls made with part cake mix before and these do not disappoint. If you've never had any; the texture is pretty light and the flavor is great. There's a good chance you will need more flour as mentioned in directions, because they can be quite sticky. I paired them with the "Simple Orange Glaze" recipe on here. Delicious. Much faster to make than traditional cinnamon rolls too (love that part.)

These were absolutely delicious! - A couple of notes: * 1/2 box of cake mix = 1-1/2 cups * If you are measuring yeast from a jar rather than using packets, you need 5 teaspoons. * I needed to add a total of about 1-1/2 cups of flour prior to rolling out, plus more needed for kneading/rolling. * I prefer brown sugar, so I used that. I also like a lot of cinnamon, so I used 2 teaspoons rather than 1. * I placed these in a jelly roll pan (10" X 16"), 3 across, 6 down for a total of 18. When they baked, they were all puffy and touching so the edges didn't all get brown, which IMHO is what you want with cinnamon rolls. This is replacing my former "go-to" cinnamon roll recipe. Easy and delicious.

I followed the recipe as written except I made it in my kitchen aid. Really easy and good.
