Cinnamon Rolls


  • Dough
    • ½ cup (115 g) unsalted butter, melted
    • 2 cups (470 mL) whole milk, warm to the touch
    • ½ cup (100 g) granulated sugar
    • 1 pack active dry yeast
    • 5 cups (625 g) flour, divided
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 2 teaspoons salt
  • Filling
    • ¾ cup (170 g) butter, softened
    • ¾ cup (165 g) light brown sugar
    • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon


1) In a large bowl, whisk together warm milk, melted butter, and granulated sugar. The mixture should be just warm to the touch.
Sprinkle the yeast evenly over the warm mixture and let set for 1 minute.
2) Add 500g of all-purpose flour to the milk mixture and mix with a wooden spoon until just combined.
3) Cover the bowl with a damp towel (To keep the dough moist) or plastic wrap and set in a warm place to rise at least an hour.
Preheat oven to 180˚C, gas Mark 3.
4) After 1 hour, the dough should have nearly doubled in size.
5) Remove the towel and add an additional 95g of flour, the baking powder, (Not baking soda! This will flatten the rolls rather than make them raise.) and salt. Stir well, then turn out onto a well-floured surface.
6) Knead the dough lightly, adding additional flour as necessary, until the dough just loses its stickiness and does not stick to the surface.
Roll the dough out into a large rectangle.
7) Spread melted butter all over the surface in order to add flavour and make the toppings stick.
8) Sprinkle evenly with brown sugar and a generous sprinkling of cinnamon OR if you would wish to make chocolate flavoured buns, just simply mix dark cacao powder and a little amount of milk to it until it's rich and droopy.
9) Roll up the dough, forming a log, and pinch the seam closed.
10) Cut the log into even sizes and place it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper to prevent it from sticking to the pan when baking.Cover with plastic wrap and place in a warm place to rise for another 30 minutes.
11) Bake the cinnamon rolls in a preheated oven for 25-30 minutes. Until golden brown, take the rolls out and wait 5 minutes to cool down. Serve when warm.
