  • 1 package Active dry yeast
  • 1 1/4 cup Warm water
  • 3 cups All purpose flour divided
  • 1 box Yellow cake mix
  • 1/4 cup Butter melted
  • 1 tsp Ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup Brown sugar
  • 1 container Cream cheese frosting


  1. Start by mixing yeast and warm water. Let sit for 5 minutes. Meanwhile prepare a 13x0 inch pan with non stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl mix together 2 1/2 flour and cake mix. Add your yeast and water that has been sitting and gently mix. Slowly add remaining flour until dough forms and comes together in a ball. Cover bowl and allow to sit in a dry warm place to rise. This could take 2-3 hours depending on how warm the place it you are sitting your dough in.
  3. Once your dough has risen punch the middle and then form into a ball again. Allow it to sit while you get the inside ready. In a small bowl whisk together melted butter, ground cinnamon, and brown sugar.
  4. On a floured surface roll out dough into a large rectangle. Lightly brush the inside with your butter mixture (you may not have to use all the butter mix to cover). Tightly roll up dough into a log and then cut into 12 rolls. Allow this to rise another 30 minutes - 1 hour before baking.
  5. Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown and fully cooked.
  6. Top with cream cheese icing, serve and enjoy!
