Delicious Homemade Cinnamon Rolls with These Simple Recipes

 

Cinnamon rolls are a classic baked good that are enjoyed all over the world. Fluffy, tender, and packed with warm cinnamon and sugar, these rolls are a true indulgence. While you can always buy cinnamon rolls from a bakery or grocery store, making them at home can be a fun and rewarding culinary adventure. Here’s how to make delicious cinnamon rolls at home:

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast (1 packet)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • Filling:
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • Icing:
  • 2 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tablespoons milk

Instructions:

  1. In a small saucepan, heat the milk over medium heat until it reaches about 110°F (43°C). Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the yeast. Let the mixture sit for about 5 minutes, or until the yeast has dissolved.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar, salt, melted butter, and eggs. Add the yeast mixture and stir to combine.

  3. Gradually add the flour to the wet ingredients, stirring until a dough forms.

  4. Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 5 minutes, or until it becomes smooth and elastic. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it with a damp cloth, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour, or until it has doubled in size.

  5. Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C). On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out into a large rectangle about 1/4 inch thick.

  6. Spread the softened butter over the top of the dough. In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle the mixture over the butter.

  7. Roll the dough up tightly, starting at the long end. Cut the roll into 1-inch slices and place the slices in a greased 9×13-inch baking pan.

  8. Bake the cinnamon rolls for 20-25 minutes, or until they are golden brown.

  9. While the cinnamon rolls are baking, make the icing. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the confectioners’ sugar, melted butter, vanilla extract, and enough milk to reach a smooth, pourable consistency.

  10. When the cinnamon rolls are done, remove them from the oven and allow them to cool slightly. Then, drizzle the icing over the top of the rolls. Serve the cinnamon rolls warm and enjoy!

You can also get creative with your cinnamon roll filling by adding nuts, dried fruit, or even chocolate chips. Experiment with different variations and find your favorite combination!
