    How many rolls does this recipe make? Or what size pan do you use to bake in?

    1. Kevin

      Merissa – Lovina said two 13 X 9 inch pans with about 15 cinnamon rolls in each. She added the caveat, “all depends on how big you make them.” I’ve also seen her put them in pie pans to bake. Does that help?

        Yes, that’s just what I wanted to know!

    I’ve made her Mama’s recipe and they are great, and so are Lovina’s sourdough ones. they make your mouth water…now I’ll have to make some for this weekend…

    I was thinking about cutting recipe in half if I didn’t want so many but I guess I can’t with the 3 eggs.

      My cinnamon roll recipe calls for exactly half of everything in this recipe but using only one egg (use a larger one). These are always eaten up when taken to potlucks, brunches, etc. So I think you should give it a try!

    Freeze half the unrisen dough for another day.

      …or freeze half of them after they are baked! 🙂

    These sound better than “cinnabons”. I know I might as well make the whole recipe, or else plan on making them again tomorrow.

    What a yummy recipe and what a treat to see the pictures of the cinnamon rolls and especially the recipe card written in Elizabeth’s handwriting! My mom and I often talk about how reading Elizabeth’s words (I have all of the old cookbooks) sounds so much like my Grandma, and that they probably would have been friends had they met-and her handwriting even looks a lot like my Grandma’s did! 🙂 Thank you for posting it Kevin!

    Hi Kevin, I too have made Lovina’s cinnamon rolls. But I haven’t been able to make the sourdough ones yet because there is no recipe for the starter!! could you please post the starter recipe on here?

    Thank You Theresa

    Is Robin Hood flour all-purpose or bread flour?

    1. Barbarainnc

      I went to the Robin Hood web site, they offer all-purpose and bread flour. I didn’t know which flour to use the all- purpose or bread flour for the cinnamon rolls. Thanks for helping me out!! 🙂 🙂 I love making cinnamon rolls and would like to try this recipe. 🙂 🙂

    Purchased Robin Hood flour and gave away five of the bags to friends. Our Pastor’s wife love the flour (King Arthur has been her flour of choice) and she is switching. She made four Challah for Easter Day communion bread and the dough was pliable, easy to knead, and rose to a gigantic mass. I am making the cinnamon roll recipe this wekend and can’t wait to try it for Easter Sunday.

    Robin Hood flour can easily be found in Canada. My Mother couldn’t bake when she visited me because there’s no Robin Hood in CA.
