Cinnamon Rolls



For the Dough:

  • 2.5 cups All-purpose flour / maida
  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast…  (or half sachet i.e. 3.5 gm)
  • 1/2 cup milk (lukewarm)
  • 1/6 of a cup or 37.5 gm unsalted butter
  • 1/6 cup or 33 gm granulated white sugar
  • Pinch of salt.
  • 1.5 large eggs or 2 small eggs.


  1. In a bowl sift all-purpose flour.  Now add active dry yeast & salt to 1 cup of sifted mixture and mix them well.
  2. Meanwhile, in a pan add milk, butter, and white sugar, and stir until butter melts.  (And let it cool enough to make sure it is lukewarm before adding to the mix.)
  3. Add the milk mixture to flour and knead well.
  4. Add eggs one at a time and keep kneading.
  5. Now start adding the remaining 1.5 cup flour and keep kneading until you find the dough is non-sticky and soft.  (Add slightly more flour if needed).
  6. On the other hand, grease a bowl and put the dough in it, covering it up with a greased plastic wrap.  Now let it rest for 1.5 to 2 hours, until the dough is almost doubled in size.

Now, for the Filling:

  • 1/3 cup (80 grams) packed light brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup unsalted cold butter, (cut into pieces)

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl with hand, such that it looks like crumbs.

  1. Once the dough has almost doubled in size, just press it a bit to let the air out.
  2. Now roll it in a rectangular shape (anywhere between 12” X 6”) making sure the thickness is about a 1/4 to 1/2 inch.
  3. We have to make a log so spread the filling horizontally (long) and leave about 1/2 inch.
  4. Now start rolling the dough.  Keep it just right, not too tight nor too lose.  When you reach the end, use some egg to seal.
  5. Now divide the log in 8 sections.
  6. Put each section in the baking tray.
  7. Again, let it rest to raise.  Around an hour.
  8. Meanwhile, preheat oven at 190 °C.
  9. Now brush the rolls with light cream (just like egg wash).  And let them bake for around 25-30 mins.
  10. Once you see them turning light brown, you can check by inserting a toothpick in one of the buns and if it comes out clean, its done!
  11. Remove them from oven and again brush them with light cream.

For glaze

  • 1/4 cup icing sugar
  • 1 tablespoons light cream (or as required)

Mix them well and drizzle it over the buns!


That’s it, enjoy your fresh cinnamon rolls Smile
