How to Make Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnamon rolls are sweet rolls that are loved all over the world. Many countries have their own original recipes for cinnamon rolls, but today, we’re going to bake an American version of the sweet treat that is typically topped with icing.

5-Minute Crafts would like to show you a detailed recipe for these tasty rolls that everyone will love.

Kitchen gear

You’ll need:

  • A bowl for mixing the ingredients

  • A rolling pin

  • A baking mold

  • A mixer

  • A spoon or silicone spatula


For the dough:

  • 9 ounces of milk

  • 2.6 ounces of butter

  • 2 eggs

  • A pinch of salt

  • 24 ounces of flour

  • 4 ounces of sugar

  • 0.4 ounces of yeast powder

For the filling:

  • 9 ounces of brown sugar

  • 2.5 ounces of butter

  • 2 teaspoons of cinnamon

For the icing:

  • 9 ounces of sugar

  • 2.5 ounces of butter

  • 4.5 ounces of cream cheese

  • A bit of salt

All ingredients should be at room temperature, so take them out of the fridge approximately 1 hour before the cooking starts.

The cooking process

  • Put butter, eggs, yeast powder, flour, sugar, salt, and milk into the bowl. Mix them and make the dough.
  • If you use a planetary mixer, it’s convenient to mix all the ingredients at once.
  • If you have a hand mixer, mix the sugar and butter first, then add the eggs, salt, milk, yeast, and powder, and gradually add flour at the end. This will make the dough smoother.
  • Knead the dough.

  • Now gather the ingredients for the filling.

  • Use butter at room temperature. It should be a bit soft but not runny.
  • Put butter, sugar, and cinnamon into the bowl.

  • Mix the ingredients with the mixer.

  • Make the mass smooth. Make sure that the sugar doesn’t melt. It will melt in the oven during baking.

  • Put the dough on a floured, clean, dry surface.
  • Sprinkle a little flour on the rolling pin too.
  • Roll out the dough to make it about 0.2 inches thick.

  • Put the filling on the dough.

  • Spread the filling over the dough as evenly as possible. It will be best to use a silicone spatula.

  • Roll the dough.

  • Cut the roll into equally wide pieces.

  • Grease the mold with butter, then sprinkle it with flour.

  • Before placing the baking mold in the oven, cover the rolls with a towel and leave them in a warm place for 30 to 40 minutes to allow the dough to rise.
  • Bake the rolls in the oven, which should have been preheated to 390°F for 10 to 15 minutes, until they are lightly brown.
  • While the rolls are baking, make the icing.

  • Mix sugar, butter, cream cheese, and salt thoroughly with the mixer.

  • Make sure that the ready-made rolls grew in size and became lightly brown.

  • Put the icing on the rolls as soon as you take them out of the oven. They must be hot.

  • You can store the cinnamon rolls for 2 to 3 days, just be sure to cover them with plastic wrap.
  • Serve the rolls warm.
