Buttery Cinnamon Rolls

How have you been? How did the pizza recipe I shared come along? I would love to get your feedback. in case you missed it, click here Pizza Lovers! Where Art Thou? Today I would love to share cinnamon rolls recipe. You will love the taste of cinnamon, butter and sugar rolled into very soft and buttery dough. Let us get right into it.

  1. Making the dough

What you need

2 ¾ cups all purpose flour

1 packet instant yeast

¼ cup water

1 egg

¼ cup sugar

½ cup milk

3 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 tea spoon salt


  • Mix flour, sugar,salt and yeast in a bowl and set aside.
  • Mix milk, water and butter in a heatproof bowl. Microwave until the butter melts (the mixture should feel warm to touch)
  • Add the  wet mixture into the dry ingredients and add the beaten egg.
  • Use a spatula and stir until you get a soft dough. You can also use an electric mixer.
  • Transfer the dough on a lightly floured surface and knead for around 4 minutes-the dough should feel smooth and soft.
  • Place it in a greased bowl and cover it with a plastic wrap and let it rest for around 10 minutes.

As the dough rests, prepare the filling.

What you need

3 tablespoons butter

1 tablespoon cinnamon + ¼ cup sugar

  • After 10 minutes roll the dough in a rectangle
  • Spread butter on the rolled dough
  • Mix sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle the mixture on top of the dough
  • Roll the dough tightly and cut 10 or 11 even rolls.
  • Arrange on a lightly greased baking sheet or tin.
  • Cover them using a plastic wrap and let them rise for an hour.
  • Egg wash the rolls and bake them at 180 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
  • When baked they should be well browned and feel hollow when tapped. When a skewer is inserted, it should also come out clean.
