Any guesses what the secret ingredient is? Besides the use of Makara, a trademarked version of the Korinjte cinnamon Cinnabon uses, the other ingredient not a lot of people expect from these pastries is the use of margarine

Mental Floss says that Cinnabon makes the cinnamon rolls by stretching out the dough into a rectangular shape which they slather with a layer of margarine, and then sprinkle with one pound of brown sugar and cinnamon before they roll it up and bake it in the oven. According to the executives of the company, they say that margarine holds up much better when baked than traditional butter.
