PCLinuxOS Bonus Recipe

Cake Mix Cinnamon Rolls


1 box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ yellow cake mix
2 1/2 to 3 cups all-purpose flour
1 package (2 1/4 teaspoons) regular active dry yeast
1 1/4 cups water
1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 container Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy cream cheese frosting


1. Grease 13x9-inch pan or 2 (9-inch) round cake pans with shortening or cooking spray.

2. In a large bowl, mix cake mix, 1 cup of the flour and the yeast. Add water; stir with wooden spoon until dough forms. Add the remaining flour 1/4 cup at a time, stirring after each addition, until a soft dough forms. You may not need all of the flour. Cover with plastic wrap, and let rise in warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.

3. Gently punch down dough, and then reshape it into a ball. Let rest for a few minutes. Meanwhile, have melted butter ready, and in a small bowl, mix brown sugar and cinnamon.

4. On lightly floured surface, roll dough into large rectangle about 1/4 inch thick. Brush with melted butter; sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Starting with 1 long end, tightly roll up dough into a log. Cut into 12 rolls.

5. Place rolls in pan(s); cover with plastic wrap. Let rise about 30 minutes while you heat oven to 375°F.

6. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes; spread with frosting. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Options: Add colorful sprinkles to liven things up or for a child’s birthday.
