This morning I woke up with a huge headache…and I have no idea why…mmm, might have been because yesterday I had 3 cinnamon rolls and all that sugar and butter and sugar and butter and sugar has not been well processed by my body? Could be that?…nah, must have been this unbearable heat and the fact that is August 17th and I have to go to work while all my friends and family are on vacation…yeah, it’s definitely that…nothing to do with the sugar and butter, and sugar, and butter and sugar and…

Anyways, I have been dieing to share this recipe with you for months and despite its nutritional content and the possible day- after headache, it is defintely worth trying!

Cinnamon rolls are like a small cooking adventure, they need time and dedication and you never know how they are going to turn out until you try them and if they are good, well if they are good… they might become addictive…like they are for me now…but that’s an other story for an other time…


For the dough

* 2 cups flour
* 70 ml milk
* 1/4 vegetable oil
* 1/4 cup sugar
* 1/2 pack dry yeast
* 1/2 tsp baking powder
* 1/4 tsp baking soda
* Lots of melted butter
* 1/2 cup of sugar
* Lots of Cinnamon

For the frosting

* 1/4 bag of Powdered sugar
* 1 tsp Maple Syrup
* 1/8 cup milk
* 1 tbsp coffee
* 1 tbsp butter

Step 1: Make the Dough

Heat sugar, vegetable oil and milk. Make it really hot but not boiling. Then turn off the heat and wait till it become lukewarm.
Now add the yeast, mix and wait a minute.
Slowly sift in flour and mix well. (leave about 1/4 cup flour that we will use later)
Let the dough rest for about 1 hour or until it double in size.

I have baked for years an much to my distress I couldn't get this recipe to work for me. I followed your directions precisely, twice. I was so looking forward to these delicious looking cinnamon rolls.
Diese sehen köstlich! Dies ist einer meiner Lieblings Frühstück! (German, I'm not babbling.)
maltser- give Allspice a try instead of cinnamon. Try it in your coffee/tea to get an idea of taste/aroma/strength for you. A spice thats underused . Good luck
in coffee? why would i ever want to ruin delicious delicious coffee? sir, i must protest this tomfoolery!
you confused my brain, you have sugar on the dough Ingredients twice
it looks like brains in sause XD
Ow. Just one more awesome food to try from i'bles... Nice job!
Thank you for sharing your recipe!! These look heavenly! I'm curious... My husband doesn't particularly care for cinnamon (it's ok in VERY small doses). Do you think brown sugar could work as a replacement for the cinnamon? Also, is there anything we can use instead of coffee when making the icing? Thanks again! All your 'ibles are awesome ;o) Beth
Thank you Beth :) Replacing cinnamon with brown sugar I dont think would work well. You can mix the cinnamon with other spices, like nutmeg, a bit of vanilla flavoring so to lighten the cinnamon flavor. Coffee in the frosting is absolutely optional. You can omit it so to taste more the maple flavor. Let me know how they turns out :)
That just looks disgustingly tasty... :P
I wish the serving size was smaller.
Why wouldn't you want more?
