Huge Cinnamon Rolls


Yummy! Big, soft, and chewy, not too sweet but with just the right amount of sticky sweetness to hit the spot. Wonderful when served warm.

6 large rolls



  • ¼ cup warm water

  • 1 tablespoon white sugar

  • 1 (.25 ounce) package instant yeast

  • ¾ cup milk

  • ¼ cup margarine

  • 3 ¼ cups all-purpose flour, or as needed

  • ¼ cup white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ cup water

  • 1 large egg


  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

  • ½ cup margarine, softened

  • ½ cup raisins

  • ½ cup chopped pecans

  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

  • nonstick cooking spray


  • 1 cup white frosting

  • ¼ cup brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ¼ cup margarine, melted


  1. Gently mix 1/4 cup warm water, 1 tablespoon sugar, and yeast for dough in a small bowl. Let sit to proof until yeast is frothy and nearly doubled in volume, about 10 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, heat milk in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until it bubbles, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in margarine until melted.

  3. Combine 2 1/4 cups flour, 1/4 cup sugar, cinnamon, salt, and yeast mixture in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook; mix well. Add 1/4 cup water, egg, and the warm milk-margarine mixture; mix until combined. Add the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, mixing well after each addition. You may not need all the flour; ideally the dough will remain a bit sticky but should be manageable with floured hands.

  4. Carefully knead dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth, about 5 minutes. Continue to flour your hands so the dough doesn't stick to them. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let rest for 10 minutes.

  5. Meanwhile, mix brown sugar, margarine, raisins, pecans, and cinnamon for filling together in a small bowl. Sprinkle a thin amount of filling on the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish, then spray with cooking spray.

  6. Roll the dough into a 1/4-inch thick rectangle measuring 9x12 inches. Cut into 6 equal strips. Spread each strip with a thin, even layer of filling (too much may be too sweet) and roll up. Transfer to the baking dish. Cover and let rise until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.

  7. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  8. Bake rolls in the preheated oven until browned, about 20 minutes. Remove from the pan to cool.

  9. Mix frosting, brown sugar, and cinnamon for icing together in a bowl. Pour in melted margarine slowly and mix to a smooth and thick consistency that is liquid enough to pour. Pour a spoonful of icing over warm rolls.
