Baked goods usually taste better when made from scratch but I usually don’t want to go thru the hassle of making homemade rolls since I live alone. I recently saw this recipe for Bread Machine Cinnamon Rolls and tried it. They were easy to make and tasted amazing. I had a bread machine several years ago and ended up getting rid of it. About a year ago, I bough one at a thrift store for about $8. It works good for making the dough like you do with this recipe. Most bread machines have pans that are smaller and a different size than a normal bread pan. I have heard of people preparing the dough in the bread machine and then baking the bread in a regular loaf pan in the oven.
If you want to try a bread machine, check out your local thrift stores. Many usually have bread machines for $8-$15. Thrift stores are also a great place to look for other small appliances and kitchen gadgets (some new in the box).
