For the rolls:

  • 1 package (2 1/4 teaspoons) active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water (about 110°F or 45°C)
  • 1 cup warm milk
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting

For the vanilla cream filling:

  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For dusting:

  • Powdered sugar


1. Prepare the Rolls:

  1. In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast in warm water and let it sit for about 5 minutes until foamy.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the warm milk, granulated sugar, melted butter, salt, egg, and the yeast mixture.
  3. Gradually add the flour, stirring until a soft dough forms.
  4. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 5-7 minutes until smooth and elastic.
  5. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it with a clean kitchen towel, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1-2 hours or until doubled in size.

2. Prepare the Vanilla Cream Filling:

  1. In a saucepan, heat the milk until it just starts to simmer.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the granulated sugar, egg yolks, and cornstarch until smooth and well combined.
  3. Gradually pour the hot milk into the egg mixture, whisking constantly to prevent curdling.
  4. Return the mixture to the saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened.
  5. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the butter and vanilla extract until smooth. Let the vanilla cream filling cool completely.

3. Assemble the Rolls:

  1. Once the dough has doubled in size, punch it down and roll it out into a rectangle on a lightly floured surface.
  2. Spread the cooled vanilla cream filling evenly over the dough.
  3. Starting from one long side, roll up the dough tightly to form a log.
  4. Using a sharp knife, cut the log into slices, about 1-2 inches thick.
  5. Place the slices in a greased baking dish, leaving some space between them to rise.
  6. Cover the baking dish with a clean kitchen towel and let the rolls rise for another 30-45 minutes.

4. Bake the Rolls:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Once the rolls have risen, bake them in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.
  3. Remove the rolls from the oven and let them cool slightly.

5. Serve:

  1. Dust the warm vanilla cream rolls with powdered sugar before serving.
  2. Enjoy these delicious treats as a dessert or sweet snack.

Vanilla Cream Rolls are a heavenly combination of fluffy rolls and creamy vanilla filling, making them a delightful treat for any occasion.
