Omigosh...this is what cinnamon rolls should be like all of the time. I'm thinking if using the cake mix in this recipe, it'll have more of a Danish pastry like texture...and that suits me just fine! I think the only thing I would do differently is to eliminate the corn syrup and maybe make a brown sugar cream cheese icing with tons of cinnamon in it and top it off with some pecans. Yum, I can already taste them!

this is such an interesting recipe! I can't figure out how it works with cake mix and yeast. I love cinnamon rolls and I think this sounds fun to make. I see that it is not as easy as popping open a tube of cinnamon rolls, but it looks and sounds delicious!

Don't knock this recipe until you give it a try! I have never heard of making cinnamon rolls out of cake mix before. The taste and texture are both a little different than what we are used to but these are still so delicious! Keep in mind that this recipe does take a lot longer than quickly heating up refrigerated cinnamon rolls. The yeast process takes at least an hour and then you have to allot for baking time and prep time!

I'm concerned about the amount of yeast. Never heard of 1/4ounce packages.

This is just a "regular" sized packet of yeast, one packets from a strip of three. I packet is 1/4 ounce or 2 1/4 teaspoons.

these were awesome - definately make them again

These are the best tasteing rolls and they we're fun and easy to make.Took some to work and they loved them.Will be making them again

THE CAKEMIX CINNAMON ROLLS DID NOT GO ITO M Y RECIPE BOX

It would be helpful if you told us why. Did the recipe not work properly? Did the rolls not taste good? What happened?

you should at least be able to give a reason if you did try the recipe!
