In the realm of baked delights, where the aromatic symphony of spices meets the tender embrace of dough, stands a creation that beckons both the young and old with its tantalizing swirls – the humble yet heavenly cinnamon roll. As the morning sun peeks over the horizon, there’s an enchanting allure to the scent of freshly baked cinnamon rolls wafting through the air. This indulgence, often accompanied by a steaming cup of coffee or a comforting glass of milk, has woven itself into the fabric of our mornings and celebrations.


For the Dough:

  • 2 and ¼ teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm milk
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ⅓ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour

For the Filling:

  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 3 tablespoons ground cinnamon

For the Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • ¼ cup cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Step by Step

  1. Activate the Yeast: In a bowl, dissolve yeast in warm milk and let it sit for about 5 minutes, until it becomes frothy.
  2. Prepare the Dough: To the yeast mixture, add sugar, melted butter, salt, eggs, and half of the flour. Mix until smooth. Gradually add the remaining flour and knead until the dough is soft and elastic.
  3. First Rise: Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it with a damp cloth, and let it rise for about an hour, or until doubled in size.
  4. Rolling Out: Punch down the risen dough and roll it into a rectangle on a floured surface. Spread softened butter over the dough and sprinkle it with brown sugar and cinnamon.
  5. Creating the Swirl: Roll up the dough tightly, starting from the long side. Cut the rolled dough into slices.
  6. Second Rise: Place the slices in a greased baking pan, leaving a little space between each. Cover and let them rise again for about 30 minutes.
  7. Baking: Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Bake the rolls for 20-25 minutes, until they turn golden brown.
  8. Creamy Finale: While the rolls cool slightly, prepare the cream cheese frosting. Beat together cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Spread this luscious frosting over the warm rolls.


As the first bite melts in your mouth, the symphony of flavors unfolds. The soft, cinnamon-infused layers blend seamlessly with the rich cream cheese frosting, creating a dance of taste that’s both comforting and celebratory. Cinnamon rolls aren’t just a pastry; they’re a hug on a plate, a moment of indulgence that transcends time. So, whether it’s a quiet morning or a festive gathering, allow yourself to be embraced by the sweet enchantment of these irresistible cinnamon rolls.
