Delicious Cinnamon Rolls

Hello Everyone! ¿Cómo están ustedes? Estoy muy feliz!! jaja. Yo hice "Cinnamon Rolls". La primera vez. These were so good! I made cinnamon rolls because I was in the mood for them. I hadn't had a cinnamon roll in such a long time, and these really hit the spot. I've been wanting to make cinnamon rolls for a long time, but the thought of rolling out the dough, and cutting them up overwhelmed me. I finally did it. And, the results are quite good, if I say so myself. They don't look half bad. The taste is pretty good, if I say so myself. It's a special treat before going back to school soon. These took 4 hours to make. I decided to be daring and make cinnamon rolls along with the hot dog buns and the bolo bao, since, my brother also wanted to eat those too. It was so much work, but it sure pays off. The buns and cinnamon rolls are delicious. Here's the link to the bolo bao and hot dog buns. I'll post how to make the bolo bao and hot dog buns in the next post. So, here's the recipe for the cinnamon rolls. By the way, those who are watching the calorie count, it is around 488 calories. You can round up to 500. It is a lot, but it is worth every calorie. Just watch what you eat the rest of the day. ;)


  • around 3 3/4 cup bread flour
  • 3/4  cup sugar
  • 1/2  cup warm milk
  • 1/2  cup warm water
  • 2 1/2 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • 1/4  cup oil
Inside Filling:
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2  1/2 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • softened butter (around 2 tablespoons)
  • 1 1/2  cup powdered sugar
  • 3 1/2  tablespoon milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  1. In a bowl pour in the warm water and warm milk. Mix in the sugar. 
  2. Add in the active dry yeast and let it poof for about 10 minutes.
  3. Mix in the egg and oil. 
  4. Slowly add in the flour, cup by cup,  until a dough has formed. Knead the dough. It should be elastic, but it shouldn't stick to the bowl. 
  5. Cover it with plastic, and let it rise for about an hour in a warm place. 
  6. Mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon, for the filling. 
  7. After an hour. push down the dough to let the air out. Roll out the dough into a rectangle, then, spread the softened butter onto the dough. Then, sprinkle on the brown sugar filling. You can add raisins and nuts if you wish. 
  8. Roll the dough together. Cut the dough into 12 rolls. You can use string to cut through the dough, like I have shown in the picture. 
  9. Let the rolls rise for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350 F. 
  10. Bake the rolls for 20 to 30 minutes. While baking, make the icing. Just mix all the ingredients together. Once the rolls are done, let them cool and spread the icing onto them. 
  11. Enjoy your homemade cinnamon rolls. :)
