  1. 1 box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ yellow cake mix
  2. 2 1/2 to 3 cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  3. 1 package (2 1/4 teaspoons) regular active dry yeast
  4. 1 1/4 cups water
  5. 1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled
  6. 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  7. 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  8. 1 container Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy cream cheese frosting
  1. Grease 13x9-inch pan or 2 (9-inch) round cake pans with shortening or cooking spray.
  2. In large bowl, mix cake mix, 1 cup of the flour and the yeast. Add water; stir with wooden spoon until dough forms. Add the remaining flour 1?4 cup at a time, stirring after each addition, until soft dough forms. You may not need all of the flour. Cover with plastic wrap, and let rise in warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Gently punch down dough, and then reshape it into a ball. Let rest for a few minutes. Meanwhile, have melted butter ready, and in small bowl, mix brown sugar and cinnamon.
  4. On lightly floured surface, roll dough into large rectangle about 1/4 inch thick. Brush with melted butter; sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Starting with 1 long end, tightly roll up dough into a log. Cut into 12 rolls.
  5. Place rolls in pan(s); cover with plastic wrap. Let rise about 30 minutes while you heat oven to 375°F.
  6. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes; spread with frosting. Serve warm or at room temperature.
  1. * Bake time is the same whether you bake these cinnamon rolls in a 13x9-inch pan or 2 round 9-inch pans.
