This was my first time making cinnamon rolls so I really don't have anything to compare these too, but they were pretty darn good! The Garam Masala was the perfect touch in remaking this classic breakfast treat! They were spicy, but not hot spicy. The sugar caramelized a little on the bottoms, leaving a gooey- syrupy crunch which was pure bliss.

This recipe yields 12 rolls, but you do have to wait overnight to stick them in the oven. If your impatient like me, this could be a problem. If anyone has a really good dough recipe that doesn't require waiting, please pass it my way. :)


Garam Masala is a spice blend commonly used in North Indian  & South Asian cuisines. The word garam refers to the intensity of the spices rather than capsaicin content. Meaning, it smells really pungent but isn't spicy like a chili pepper.

Garam = Hot
Masala= Mixture

Recently tried this, the garam masala compliments the cinnamon and gives some "curry" flair to a classic treat. Thanks for the inspiration.
