    Default cinnamon rolls went wrong

    I made a few different cinnamon roll recipes over the last 2 months, the
    first batch came out good, they did rise nice and were soft, the last 3
    times I made them were not very successful, they did not rise any where
    near the first time and were not not as soft either, I am trying to get
    the rolls to rise better and be soft, the only thing I can think of is
    if I am rolling the dough too thin, the first time I used all purpose
    flour the last few times I was trying bread flour. today's cinnamon
    rolls recipe was a little different it said to add 1/2 box of instant
    vanilla pudding, could not tell the difference whether I used the
    instant pudding or not, I just cannot get the hang of making a good
    cinnamon but any ideas or can someone give me a recipe that works, I use
    a bread machine to mix all the ingredients. how do they make the Cinabon
    roll so soft....

    Is the some reason you're not going back to the first recipe that
    *did* work for you? I made cinnamon rolls a couple of weekends ago
    and they were sublime, but I don't use a real recipe. I had one in
    front of me, but the closest I came to following it was measuring 9x15
    before I rolled it up.

    I love cooking with wine.
    Sometimes I even put it in the food.

    Google "Cinnabon Rolls recipe" and compare the recipes you find to
    yours. I'd try the all-purpose flour again or a combination of that and
    cake flour.

    I have an easy challah recipe and it makes awesome cinnamon rolls.
    Because challah is braided, the dough is kind of stretchy so it lends
    itself to rolling flat. If anyone wants it, just ask.

    If you found a recipe you liked, why do you keep trying other
    recipes? Not a criticism, just curious.

    I use BH & G (Better Homes & Gardens) from the c. 60s bread cookbook,
    and they are perfect every time. I usually make some cinnamon and
    some pecan so as to please everyone. I use regular Gold Medal all-
    purpose flour - make sure your yeast is fresh - also don't put the
    salt directly into the yeast mixture without some other ingredients in
    there to temper the salt. Sugar feeds yeast; salt kills it.

    My recipe is a "rich roll dough" - has egg in it.
