Homemade Cinnamon Rolls!

Delicious and sweet Homemade Cinnamon Rolls. Easy to Bake, and even more Delicious to eat.

So I’ve tried my hand at several different breads over my time of baking more, but most of that was at Cookery School. I don’t often post dough related recipes on here as I feel like there not going to have much of a reception, but I feel like I could be wrong there. Is it wrong? You tell me… but I bloody love bread.

This recipe is based quite a lot on my Lemon & Blueberry Sweet Rolls recipe, because I just love it so much. I’ve never had an issue when baking them, and I just adore the Lemon and Blueberry flavours.. but the classic is Cinnamon really.

I often get a cinnamon roll when I go to my local starbucks or other coffee shop to work, and I do question why I haven’t posted a recipe for these sooner.Obviously, if you aren’t a fan of cinnamon, you’re not going to like these. However if you like cinnamon, you’re going to be a BIG fan. I am obsessed.

I adore my Baked Cinnamon Doughnuts recipe, because its warm and cinnamon-y, and these are just as good. A bit heavier admittedly because they are an actual dough, but still so cosy and warm. I realise it is now coming into spring and then summer, but I love cinnamon year round.

A lot of people say cinnamon is a Christmas thing, and it is very good round that time of year, but my gosh I just adore it all the time. Cinnamon rolls are just the epitome of heaven in a bite. I make sure that my cinnamon rolls are quite thick with cinnamon goodness, but thats entirely your choice.

They are very adaptable, and can easily be made less or more cinnamon like, but that’s something you can work out easily if you make these a couple of times. You work out what is your favourite.

I will say I feel like I’m a bit of a cheat when it comes to baking anything like these, or my Sticky Chocolate Sweet Rolls, because I use my KitchenAid with a dough hook.

When I was in cookery school, I had to knead all my dough by hand, so I quickly learned the techniques because I simply had to, but now I don’t ~have~ to, I’ have become very lazy in that department. The dough hooks look a little weird when in use, but it works so well, and its so easy.

Literally bung the ingredients in, and let it do its thing. It will be a sticky mess at first, but it soon comes together. It’s sort of magical to watch all the ingredient come together to form the perfect dough. 

If you are kneading it by hand, you will probably want to try kneading it in a bowl for the first couple of minutes so that you don’t have to add in too much extra flour to stop it sticking to the work surface. However, you do you. I am lazy, we all know that, so I let my dough hook do its thing.

For the topping I just do an icing drizzle – but you can make it a cream cheese frosting by following my Cream Cheese Frosting recipe – or even just beating in 50g or so of cream cheese to this one! 

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do! x

Ingredients

The Dough

  • 600 g Strong White Bread Flour (plus extra for dusting)
  • 14 g Dried Active Yeast
  • 75 g Caster Sugar
  • 90 g Unsalted Butter
  • 275 ml Full Fat Milk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Large Egg

The Filling

  • 45 g Unsalted Butter (melted)
  • 175 g Light Brown Sugar
  • 1-2 tbsps Ground Cinnamon

The Topping

  • 300 g Icing Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 3-4 tbsp Water

Instructions

  • Sift the flour into a large bowl, and add the caster sugar and yeast. Mix these together so its all evenly distributed.
  • Rub the butter into the mixture so it resembles bread crumbs, like you would when making scones. 
  • Gently heat the milk until warm - but not piping hot. If heating in a pan, you want it to just about start having steam come out of the pan. 
  • Add the milk, vanilla, and egg to the dry ingredients. 
  • Knead the dough together for 7-10 minutes. It will be sticky at first, but it will soon come together. I use my KitchenAid with the Dough Hook to make this easier. 
  • Once kneaded, it will be springy to touch, and not sticky. 
  • Transfer into a lightly oiled bowl, and cover the top of the bowl with cling film. Let it rise for 1-2 hours, or until doubled in size. 
  • Whilst the bread is proving, whisk together the light brown sugar, and ground cinnamon for the filling. Leave to the side for now. 
  • Once the dough has risen, transfer to a lightly floured work surface, and roll out to a large rectangle. Mine ends up being about 50cmx30cm. 
  • You want it to be as even a rectangle as possible so its easier to roll up, and the dough can be thin here. 
  • Gently brush the surface with the 45g of melted butter, and then sprinkle over the sugar/cinnamon mix. 
  • Roll the dough from long side to long side, so that a ~long sausage~ is formed. Cut this evenly into 12 pieces. 
  • I cut the middle, and then the two halves into two more, and then each into three pieces to get my 12. 
  • Using a large rectangular baking dish, mine was 30cmx24cm roughly, put them in. They won't touch yet, but you want four rows of three basically. 
  • Cover the dish with clingfilm, and let them rise for another hour or so. By the end, they should all touch. 
  • Towards the end of the dough rising, preheat the oven to 180C/160CFan so that when its finished rising, you can put it straight in the oven.
  • Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown and cooked through. 
  • Leave to cool, and then make the icing. Simply whisk together the icing sugar, vanilla and water until a thick icing paste is formed, and then spread over the rolls. 
  • Enjoy by breaking apart and eating all the gooey cinnamon goodness. 

Notes

  • These are best on the day of eating, but will last covered for a couple of days. 
  • You can easily reduce or increase the amount of cinnamon that you use in the recipe, but I typically use two tablespoons for mine. I like it really cinnamon-y. 
  • You could also use cinnamon in the dough, but I like the touch of the vanilla instead. 
  • The icing on top is optional, but I often find when you buy cinnamon rolls, there is icing on top. 
  • I use dried active yeast - but you can use quick yeast (same amount) or fresh yeast (use 28g). Some yeasts need activating before use so check package instructions!

ENJOY!

    Wow this recipe is fabulous. I made mine using vegan butter and milk due to intolerances and they were amazing. The dough was so much easier to handle and roll out than other recipes I’ve followed. I also threw in some mixed fruit (personal preference). Thanks for sharing your recipe!

    I froze half of them, just before the 2nd proving stage. Do I need to defrost and prove?

      You can always put most into the square tin, maybe 9 of the 12) and then put the final three onto a tray?! Either should be fine though!

    Second batch made today, decided to freeze 2/3rds on this occasion before second prove.
    At this point found my error, along the way I had picked up a jar of chilli with a bit less than 1 tbs left in and made it up to 2 tbs with cinnamon from new jar.
    Different but surprisingly tasty, my wife said she thinks I have found a new breakfast snack. Can’t be too bad we have just shared another one!

      This might sound strange and I’m being a pain but I’ve seen a recipe about banana bread cinnamon rolls I was wondering if I could add mashed banana to your recipe as it’s my favourite recipe of yours? Do you think it’s possible if so how haha! Thank you.! Xxxx

    Hi Jane, sorry if this has already been asked. The dired active yeast I have needs activating in 150ml of water. Would this make the dough to sticky along with the milk/egg? If so what brand of active yeast do you recommend using that doesn’t need so much liquid to activate?

    Hope my question makes sense 🙈 x

    • Jane's Patisserie

      Oh yes you definitely don’t want to do that as that will ruin the dough – add the yeast to the warm milk x

    These are amazing, really easy to make. I use a breadmaker for the mixing and the first prove and it means I can bung it all in and leave for a couple of hours. Have even experimented and used the same dough recipe for Belgian buns and they also came out brilliantly. And the blueberry and lemon rolls are also great. Thank you for such a fantastic recipe!!

      Hey! So yes they will go a little more solid in the fridge, but they’ll need to because of the frosting. You can microwave them briefly (such as they often do in coffee shops) and it will just soften the frosting slightly but bring the cinnamon rolls back! x

    After I’ve taken it out the fridge I will then leave at room to again for an hour or so? Please help xx

    Hi Jane
    I love cinnamon swirl buns so can’t wait to try your recipe out – I usually buy them from Tesco but yours look as good so I think I will try and make my own – just one question before I do as I’ll be using fresh yeast is it just a case of substituting the fresh yeast for the dried in the recipe ( I have already seen your advice of adding double amount for fresh) would I add the fresh yeast to the warm milk and then add it to the dry ingredients in that order? Does anything else need to change in the recipe by using fresh yeast? Thank you

      It depends what you mean by ‘normal’ – plain flour can be used, but the texture is a lot more cakey compared to classically bready. I wouldn’t use self raising.

      So you definitely don’t want it to over prove. The timing is an estimate anyway – for example, in the heatwave this week in the UK, the dough proves MUCH quicker than the two hours, whereas in the winter it could take quite a bit longer. The best thing is to do a prove in the fridge, but that would have to be over night as it really slows down the process!

      I’m unsure of why you’d want to use cornflour instead of eggs to make it vegan? I’ve never seen this before! Personally I would substitute the whole milk for a good vegan milk such as unsweetened almond milk and then use an oil such as vegetable oil, maybe 50ml? x

    Hi there! In the middle of baking this recipe.
    We added the dried active yeast to the dry ingredients, and didn’t activate it beforehand – is that right? Or do we need to activate it before as per it says on the tin?

    I think it’s still rising! So fingers crossed should work!

    • Jane's Patisserie
      June 20, 2020 at 4:26 pm

    Absolutely fantastic recipe, turned out brilliantly and my family adore them. I will definitely be making them again. The recipe is easy to follow, so really easy to make if you’re going to be home for the day. By that I mean overall the time spent actually making them isn’t much but you have to do things with the dough every now and then. I pottered about doing other things in between different stages.
    Thanks for a great recipe, now I need to try one of your others ;-)xx

    I’m struggling to find soft brown sugar in the shops at the moment. I have dark muscavado, Demerara or white sugar, which would be a suitable alternative if any? Thankyou x

      Hi Jane, I made this recipe and froze half of them after the first prove and am now wondering how to cook the second batch. Should I defrost in fridge over night then allow to prove again for an hour once defrosted? Or if I leave them out on counter to defrost would they also prove as they defrost? I’m not really sure how bread bakes work!

    Hi Jane
    Could I make the dough before bed & let it prove overnight so I could bake them in the morning or would it over-prove?

    Thanks 😊

      You can, but they’d need to prove in the fridge over night – this slows down the process so makes sure that they don’t over prove!

    Hi,
    I am looking forward to trying this recipe- can I substitute semi skimmed milk for full fat?
    Thank you

      Generally, I do only recommend full-fat for baking (in basically all recipes) but you can use it – sometimes semi-skimmed can split mixtures though x

    Thank you for this wonderful recipe, Jane!
    My kids love cinnamon rolls but the recipe I had for them was a lot more work and a little bit erratic of outcome. This was a doddle – the house smells divine and the tray of rolls is absolutely scrumptious.
    I only had semi skimmed milk but it worked just fine.
    I think I’ll mix it up a little next time and add cardamon to the dough, like the cinnamon rolls I had in Norway.
    THanks so much for sharing!

    Hi Jane

    My rolls are currently on their second prove but I don’t want to bake them right away. Will it affect the bake if I leave them on the counter for 2 hours (after they are done proving) before baking?

    Thank you!

      It can do – over proving can ruin a bread style bake! The two hours extra will be two hours more proving time. Once proved, I would put them in the fridge as this very much slows it down (such as the second prove can easily be done in the fridge overnight as it’s much slower!)

    Hi Jane,

    I just made these and they proved well both times, however when I baked they didn’t rise any more and have ended up quite stodgy. Any times on how to improve for next time?

    Thank you!!

      Hiya! Due to shortages in ingredients recently – did you substitute anything or make any changes? – otherwise, if they proved well it may just be your oven being on the wrong setting, or the ingredient problem!

    Going to give these a go this weekend – just a few questions though..I was going to use my kitchen aid to knead the dough as well – which speed do you use? And will ‘easy bake’ yeast by Allinson work as well as the ‘dried active’ yeast?
    Thank you 🙂 x

    Just a few questions – when you knead your dough with your kitchen aid, what speed do you use? As I was going to use mine 🙂 And I’ve managed to get Allison- Easy bake yeast, will this work as well as the dried active yeast?

    Easy to make , the dough is really good to work with so it’s ‘silly’ proof. I bake quite often and when it comes to the dough sometimes is so difficult,I just want to chuck it in the bin.
    My family loved it ! I can’t eat chocolate so this will be once a week treat 😉😋. We love cinnamon so I put the full amount – delicious.

    Been trying to get my hands on the ingredients for weeks to give this a go…..managed to get everything with the exception of dried yeast. Got hold of some fresh yeast, can this be used and if so is it just replacing the dried yeast like for like?

      When using fresh yeast you use double the weight, as dried yeast is stronger!

    I have made cinnamon rolls a few times but this recipe was the best by far. You could tell from the dough that they were going to be good. I made them two days ago and have already had requests from my family and neighbors to bake them again! Will definitely need to double the quantities next time!

    Hi Jane!
    I’ve honestly tried lots of your bakes and everyone one of them have been a winner and everyone I’ve baked for has loved them so thank you! Two questions really, can you get away with using semi skimmed milk? And also all I have in the cupboard is fast action dried yeast (think that’s the same as instant yeast) can I use that instead do you think? Thank you for all your recipes!

      Hey! Ahh thank you so much! Yes you can, but generally in baking whole milk is better as lower fat products can split – same with cream cheese, cream and so on! And yes you can – double check to make sure if it needs activating before using!

    These are fab! I have looked for a good cinnamon swirl recipe for ages.

    Quick question – if I make the full batch I eat them all straight away! I could obviously freeze after baking, but do you think it would be possible to freeze the raw swirl (either before or after the last prove)? Thanks so much.

      Hey! Yes, so you can freeze before or after baking. If you freeze before, you’ll probably need to leave them out for a while before baking so they bake properly!

    Recipe is amazing but the timing in the prep is off, I thought I’d have it made in an hour or so but it needs to rest bringing the prep time to 2 hours not the 15 mins stated. I should have fully read the recipe first too.

      The actual prep time to ‘prep’ the ingredients is fifteen minutes – there is no way to add in a proving time to the timings unfortunately.

    Hi Jane! I love your recipes I have made so many ever since I discovered them – mainly cheesecakes, which always come out so amazing! I decided to make this recipe and it turned out really well flavour wise. However I did put them in the oven on 180C but found that the bottom was doughy and slightly uncooked when cut into them. I then put them back in the oven on 160C instead for 10 minutes and this seemed to do the job. How can I avoid this happening again? Thank you 🙂

      It probably just means they weren’t finished baking yet! Just add on a little while longer baking time – all ovens are different, and yours might not be quite the temperature you think! X
