If you’ve never made cinnamon rolls from a cake mix, let me tell you, you’re missing out. And these Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Rolls may just be my new favorite flavor.
Let’s get one thing straight right from the start, these are pumpkin spice rolls, not pumpkin rolls–meaning there isn’t any actual pumpkin in them. Just the pumpkin spice! Okay, not that we’ve got that settled, I can tell you how amazing they are!
There are a few things I love about starting my cinnamon rolls with a cake mix. First of all, the dough is incredibly, wonderfully soft. And it stays that way much longer than a traditional cinnamon roll. It’s probably all of the preservatives in the cake mix or something. Whatever! They are delicious and I do not care!
The other thing I love about cake mix sweet rolls is all the different varieties you can make. I’m talking red velvet sweet rolls, chocolate sweet rolls, Funfetti, strawberry…..if there is a cake mix, you can turn it into a batch of soft, fluffy cinnamon rolls. So if you can find a pumpkin cake mix, you can even make pumpkin cinnamon rolls!
This particular batch started with a spice cake mix, which I filled with a pretty traditional cinnamon roll filling and topped with the perfect cream cheese glaze. Like I said, these rolls stay soft for days. And if they last that long at your house, you have much better self-control than the people who live here!
This is the perfect recipe to try on the weekend, or over Thanksgiving break, with your kids. I hope you love them as much as we do!
